  • Help care for children in the orphanage
  • Experience the true culture & community life of Panama
  • Improve your ability to communicate throughout your travels

 

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Your work programme will be tiring and challenging but deeply fulfilling. You will help in the day-to-day care of the orphans and running of the orphanage, helping with feeding and food preparation, play time, arranging extra-curricular activities, sports, entertaining the children and generally bringing fun and affection to the lives of these vulnerable and deprived kids. You may also be asked to help teach a variety of essential subjects such as Basic English or indeed anything else in which you have experience. The children particularly love interacting with the international volunteers because of the enthusiasm they bring to the centre.

At the orphanage we have capacity for 70 children so there is always lots of work to be done. A typical working day runs from 8am – 4pm including a three hour break between 10am – 1pm.
