Volunteer Programme - Orphanage (Children Home)

Volunteering in an orphanage is a great way to really experience the culture of a country, whilst making a contribution and gaining an unforgettable experience.

Volunteer assists in the daily running of the orphanage. In some placements, volunteer can live in the orphanage with the children and for others they will live in a special volunteers' apartment. Your role as a volunteer is to act as a big brother or sister to the children. The particulars of the role can vary depending on the orphanage. In general you will be assisting the children to get ready for school, help them with their homework, play games and organise activities and assist them in practicing English.

VFN Allows the opportunity to work with underprivileged children who have been isolated and many times, forgtten by socitety at large. Although working with orphans can be physicaly and emotionally hard work, our volunteer find it all the more rewaeding. Our volunteers involeved themselves in daily activities that helps the facilities run smoothly and show the children that someone direct does care about them.
