Make a REAL difference in Ukraine with Childcare & Development Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
The mission of this program is to care for the orphaned, abandoned and impoverished children of Ukraine. There are more than 100,000 children in more than 140 orphanages in Ukraine, and these facilities are often desperately underfunded and understaffed. Volunteers supply hands on care to the children, helping with their education, playing games and arranging fun activities during leisure time, like sports or trips to the park. The children in orphanages require a lot of care, attention and most importantly, companionship. Volunteers play a hugely significant part in the lives of these vulnerable children by simply showing they care, and giving them hope. Once back home, volunteers might help further by fundraising, organizing events such as auctions, and thus helping to provide the medication, food, clothing, vitamins, toys and other necessities that are in such short supply.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide essential childcare to vulnerable children of Ukraine
- Improve the future prospects of the children in Ukraine
- Give impoverished children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.
- Housing Available
- Language/Cultural Support Available
- International Volunteers
