Work at an Orphanage in the Dominican Republic

Company : Frontier
Countries: Caribbean / Dominican Republic
Duration: 2 weeks to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 500 to 1000 £ Pound (UK)

Help the many unfortunate youngsters throughout the country. Whatever role you take on you will be giving disadvantaged children a better start in life. 

In your first few days you will receive an orientation introduction to the area and the volunteer work by your local coordinator. The children really benefit greatly from this rich opportunity for cultural exchange and your involvement will make a real and lasting difference to their lives. You will be an integral part of the project as it strives to offer skills development and environmental education to the people who need it the most. 

The kinds of activities that you could be involved with throughout the project is very much up to you and how much you use your initiative.  The most successful volunteers are typically those who remain flexible and are as proactive as possible.   At the same time, if you have a particular interest or preference then your local coordinator will be happy to help you focus your time in that area.  

Some of the areas where you could get involved include helping out with the daily duties of running the orphanage, spending time with the children playing and creating fun and interesting activities for them, helping out with kitchen duties, teaching in the school or even lending a hand at a local women’s group which also uses the centre.  The staff at the orphanage will be happy for you to simply get involved in as much as you feel comfortable with and let you decide your own daily schedule as your help will be appreciated in most areas.
