Benefits of Volunteering Abroad with Children

While the world is definitely an exciting place, it is also deeply divided. While some countries have an abundance, others experience abject poverty. Anyone living in poor conditions is sad, but in particular children often suffer the worst. They have had no say in their living conditions and must do their best to persevere and rise above the challenges presented to them.

By volunteering with children abroad, you can make a positive impact on the life of a disadvantaged child, whilst also enriching your own life. It has been proven that those who volunteer are on average happier and healthier, so by helping a child reach their potential, you have the opportunity to reach your own!

Especially if you are looking to pursue a career that involved interacting with children on some level, you can also gain very marketable skills when you volunteer with children abroad. Those who take part in our programs will be assisting with providing education, recreation and general care for children from diverse backgrounds. This type of experience and training can often be next to impossible to get at home.

While there are many economic and social problems in Uganda, the most pressing issue is the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Communities have been devastated by this awful disease and many children are left orphaned. Our project in Uganda is in need of passionate individuals interested in volunteering with children abroad.  As a volunteer with this project you will assist our local partners in providing a ‘home-like’ atmosphere for the children and provide educational experiences.

Volunteer In Orphanage in Ghana

As Ghana begins to develop, there have been an increasing tendency of young people from rural areas abandoning their homes for the city, where they hope to find work. Many of these children soon find themselves in poor condition and are open to exploitation. We are working with a number of orphanages in Ghana focussing on caring for these children and finding permanent homes for them. This is one of our most rewarding programs for volunteering abroad with children.

Childcare Project In Brazil (Rio de Janeiro)

This amazing project in Rio de Janeiro does not deal with orphans, but is no less important. In the poorest areas of the city, there are no childcare facilities and children are often left unattended by parents who must work everyday to get by. As a part of this project you will help to provide care for these children and support the parents who are trying to create a better future for their families. This is a great opportunity to volunteer with children abroad and make a real difference to an entire community.

Work With Street Children in Guatemala

As a part of this project in Guatemala City you will be working with the very poorest street children in the country. The children and their families live near a major rubbish dump and are exposed to exploitation due to their poverty. If you are looking to volunteer with children abroad in order to make a real impact, then there is no better choice than this project.

Work with Street Children and Educational Programs In Peru

Our project in Peru is aimed at orphaned children, or children from broken and fractured homes. Many of these children have little to no education and are at serious risk of exploitation. As a volunteer with this project you will help to care for and educate these children. If you are interested in Volunteering abroad with children so that you can share your unique expertise and knowledge, then this is a great opportunity to do so.
