CHILD CARE // ORPHANAGE EDUCATION
Living on the streets or becoming an orphan is incredibly difficult for most individuals to imagine but it is a harsh reality for millions of children in many developing countries across the globe, especially throughout countries like India. To make matters even more difficult, most families do not want female children and thousands of children every year are dropped off at orphanages and the parents are never to be seen again. Luckily, efforts have been made by various welfare organizations to protect these children, to provide a safe and secure home environment and most importantly to offer them adequate education. Working at an orphanage as a volunteer requires love for children, maturity and self-discipline. On a program like this, you will share your time, energy and skills to support these children and bring a bright ray of hope into their lives. During your stay, you will be encouraged to teach basic English, draw, help organize games or sports activities, sing, dance, or even perform theater with the children. Providing general care for the children is also something that is highly encouraged. You may also be asked to perform general and special tasks and accompany children on outings as required by the program.
Volunteering at an orphanage is just one of the many different programs we offer. Here is one unique way for you to get involved: you can volunteer and work at a safe home where staff and volunteers help to educate and provide skills that will empower children and give them a fighting chance to achieve their goals and help them to reach their dreams. At most orphanages, children living there get access to some level of education but the challenges they face are beginning school late and delayed education, a lack of opportunity, and limited platforms to progress academically. By becoming a volunteer on this program, you can help support them by providing education with special emphasis on English, Mathematics and Computers, and also spend time with them, make them smile and promote their overall well being.
