Nadir from Brazil enjoyed playing with the children at “The Orphanage” in Tanzania

Nadir Oliveira from Brazil has volunteered with the children of “The Orphanage” in Arusha, Tanzania and shares her beautiful experience:

I’m from Brazil.
I’ve had three unforgettable weeks working as a volunteer in Arusha, Tanzania.
To be in a foreign country, especially in a continent so different from our western life was the first impact.
The second impact was the institution “The Orphanage” with many children that wanted affection. Besides the affection they’ve wanted to learn more.
On the other hand, the great variety of necessities of this institution: food, clothes, didactic materials, domestic services, etc.
But that’s What I’ve thought.
And now I only can say:
Thank you so much because I was able to learn, teach, support to teacher, play with children and help a little in the daily routine.
I only have positive points about the program: the whole organization, support with informations, suggestions, safety recommendations and many other things.
I also consider very important to comment the acommodation: localization, home, amenities, food and the care of people who work at the home.
At the end, I have to say thank you for the touristic informations and programs that I could did.
Thank you so much for this magic experience in my life.

I was in Mombassa for around 4 months and I was nineteen years old. I didn’t know what to study yet or what to do with my life I had just finished high school. Just being there with the people was a life changing experience, I had the best time in Cannan Orphanage, the kids are the most beautiful kids I´ve ever seen, teaching them and playing with them was so fulfilling.

Volunteering on Childcare in Argentina

Matt & Dulcie at the childcare project in Argentina.

This is an orphanage in a poor village located in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. Around 20 children aged 4 to 18 live there while waiting for adoption or returning to their families. It is a humble house, but surrounded by a large field.

Volunteers are very needed to organize all types of activities – be creative! You can teach them arts & crafts, English, plan outdoors activities, organize a theater play or dance workshop, etc.

They are more than open to anything you want to offer. Most importantly, they need care and affection.

With the right effort and ideas, you can really help them change their live paths.

Are you up for it? Come and join to leave your mark!

Also the country is beautiful, in the weekends I would book tours and excursions around Mombassa and see everything Kenya has to offer. At the end I left like a different person, it was by far the best 4 months of my life. Because of that experience I decided to go into Clinical Nutrition in university and do more volunteering like this in the future.

Childcare Volunteer in Cambodia

To work as a childcare volunteer in Cambodia, attending children of the orphanage, will be both a rewarding and challenging experience. In Cambodia, there are more than 250 orphanages which will be happy to welcome volunteers helping with the childcare. Accounting for 8.8% of all children, there are 553,000 single and double orphans in Cambodia. An estimated one-third of Cambodian children live below the poverty line, and their parents can’t afford adequate education. That’s why many families have turned to orphanages in hoping the orphanage could provide a better education for their own children. So the orphanages have become an important institution providing education for a better future not only for orphans, but also the children from families below the poverty line.

Volunteer to Make a Difference for Orphaned Children

This project provides the volunteers a chance to make a difference to such deprived children by helping them on a day-to-day basis. Your volunteer work schedule will include sanitation, learning, recreation and offering extracurricular activities such as drawing, painting, singing, and dancing.
The main objective of the childcare volunteer program is to bring mental, intellectual, physical and social improvement to  the orphans.

Requirements/ Qualifications for Childcare Volunteer in Cambodia

No specific skill or qualification is required while volunteering in Cambodia for orphanage project, but volunteers with interest in social development of children and who love spending time with kids are appreciated.

Nepal Volunteer with Orphanage

Joe Bartley, from UK, and Vivian (Minghui Ma), from China, painting the playground of the orphanage in Nepal.

I can’t thank the organization enough for the experience they gave me. In my three month programme there has not been a day where I didn’t feel part of a family and looked after as if I as grown up with them. They was always prepared to help me with any problems or queries.

They have cooked food every night tasted incredible and the family very quickly made me feel at home and looked after. This is a feeling I will never forget. Working every day at the orphanage was amazing. The children made sure they would keep me on my toes and keep me fit. They are such wonderful kids and even though I was there to help and teach them. What I received back in return is more than I could ever imagined. I was their older brother and that’s something I’m very proud to be able to say. The staff also did everything they could to make me feel welcome and I never once felt alone or out of place due to the hospitability they showed me. The past three months have been the most wonderful time of my life and I owe all the family, the children and Narayan and his organization. Words won’t do justice to how much it has changed me for the good. Thank you once again for everything. – Joe Bartley

Volunteering on Childcare at an Orphanage in Nepal

Nepal has long suffered from insurgency and conflict. Therfore, many children have been left homeless and orphaned. Working in the childcare project you will have the opportunity to make a humble difference in the lives of these children. You will be helping them day-to-day by creating learning, recreational and extracurricular activities such as drawing, painting, singing, and dancing, and also by educating them on important issues like sanitation.

Showing Love and Affection to the children

The most important role you will have as a volunteer here is to make the children feel that they are with someone who truly cares about them. The idea is not to make a dramatic change or life-changing contribution to these kids, but is more that you share your love and affection with them and make them feel valued and special.

Simply by playing and having fun with them, being honest and present, you will have a really positive impact on their daily life. The key objective of this project is offering mental, intellectual, physical and social improvement to these deprived children.
