In this program volunteers will be placed in an orphanage. Some placements allow the volunteer to live within the orphanage, however, volunteers can also choose to be placed with our local host family located within a walk-able distance from the orphanage home. As well as being very rewarding, these placements can be physically and emotionally demanding. Your role as an Orphanage Volunteer is to be a big brother or sister to the children. What you will be doing will vary in each orphanage. You may be required to help in other ways besides simply working with the children - for example helping with medical visits, cleaning, paper recycling, gardening, teaching the house mothers how to properly clean, doing repairs, mending clothing, planning activities for after they return from school and perhaps preparing meals. Once the children return from school, your role will be to assist and encourage them with their homework as well as play with them. Please be ready to help in the Kitchen Garden as well for 2 hours a day.
