Haiti is a fantastic place to spend time volunteering abroad with children in orphanages. is a country of rich natural resources and ancient traditions. However, an ever-growing disparity between rich and poor has resulted in a large percentage of the population still living in poverty. Poor health and sanitation have contributed to the low life expectancy and high infant mortality rates.
You can share your favorite stories, songs and games that children can learn and enjoy during your childcare volunteer project, and the local staff can use once you have returned home.
You will have great fun playing games, preparing and serving meals, reading stories, leading sports activities and more. You may even be asked to lead small group activities, to provide one on one support to an individual child or to run age appropriate sessions on topics such as hand-washing.
You can play a small part by helping local projects to provide services to communities where it is most needed.
You don’t need specific childcare skills or qualifications on most of our childcare projects but those with experience are most welcome. A willingness to help where needed, a genuine enthusiasm for working with children and completion of a police background check are all that are required to become a childcare volunteer.
Join us on one of our childcare projects and relieve the burden on the local staff as well as sharing your childhood favorites with children and staff in Haiti. What a truly rewarding experience for you all.
No day will be the same when volunteering at the orphanage as anyone who has worked with small children will no doubt tell you.
Volunteers with a passion for art, dance, theater and music are also sought. All volunteers must be caring, patient and willing to listen and work as part of a team. It is important you respect local methods even if they are different from your own.
