Times of day
Full time (30+ hrs/wk)
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
For orphaned children one of the most beneficial things for them is to be able to have access to Education. As it will provide more opportunities for them in the future once they have to make their own way in the world. Resources are often scarce so if they have access to a teacher it will be a great advantage to them.
Depending on your own expertise and interests, though, you can also teach drawing, songs, music, dance, cooking, or any number of activities, and generally just spend quality time with the children.
Some orphanages can provide accommodation for volunteers; alternatively you can stay with a local host family and work at the orphanage during the day/evening. Your duties will include many things, basically taking care of the needs of the children, teaching them, helping with cooking, getting them ready for school. Consequently it is can be challenging but also one of the most rewarding experiences you can have, as you are improving the lives of the children.
Your day will consist of teaching for a few hours in the morning and in the evening, and in the afternoon looking after the general well being of the children. Alternatively in the afternoon you can go to the local school and teach there instead of staying at the orphanage. Most orphanages also welcome assistance from Volunteers for the organizations themselves. This involves working with staff to develop marketing, fundraising, and program strategies for the orphanage.
Working at the orphanage home includes: Helping children for their school work, encouraging the children, teaching them English language and other discipline.
