Pod Volunteer are looking for volunteers to assist local teams at a variety of child care and children's outreach initiatives around the world, by running educational activity sessions and games at day care centres and after-school clubs!

Early Learning in Ghana

Support the team on the ground and help to create fun and educational activities at an understaffed local kindergarten and creche, to equip children with skills they will need when they start primary school. Volunteers also assist with community baby weighing clinics, and help the team in promoting hand washing to local schools.

Child Care in India

Join the local team to continually expand their reach of educational support by supporting day care centres and schools, promoting education within the communities of Udaipur. By developing the children's English vocabulary and helping familiarise them with a classroom environment, volunteers help set the groundwork before the children start attending school.

Child Care in Nepal

We are looking for volunteers to support underfunded and understaffed child care centres, by running exciting and fun activities to develop the children's creative and communication skills. Volunteers contribute to the local team's efforts to inspire a passion for learning and increase the children's confidence in speaking Englsih.

Children's Day Care in Peru

Volunteers work alongside the local nursery teachers and run activities with children in the beautiful city of Arequipa. The project provides free child care for children of low income families, promoting a positive attitude to education through lessons and providing the children a strong foundation for starting school.

Children's Day Care in South Africa

The team are looking for volunteers to provide care and education at this local community initiative near Cape Town. Volunteers support children from low income families by running fun and engaging sessions at this short-staffed day care centre, helping children develop the vital skills they will need to enter the school system.
