Volunteer in Mexico with the Love Volunteers Childcare and Development Volunteering Abroad Program!

At the heart of this program is the belief that every child has a right to an education, and in supporting the rights of indigenous youth to an education that is culturally appropriate. This program was created with the goal of providing impoverished children in Oaxaca with a solid education and supply additional resources to support them, such as nutritious meals, medical care and extra-curricular activities. By providing an education and supporting their well-being, these vulnerable children will have a solid foundation in which to break the poverty cycle and lead enriched lives.

The project center serves as a place of extracurricular learning for the children, as well as a site of inter-cultural exchange for the many international students and volunteers who contribute. This is a diverse program that will allow volunteers from any background to participate. While qualified teachers are sought after, especially for longer term placements, any volunteer contribution is both valued and beneficial, with all volunteers contributing in their own unique way.

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide teaching support to children in Oaxaca City – in Mexico’s most ethnically diverse region
  • Improve the future prospects of some of Mexico’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle,
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.
  • Keep children in education for longer by supporting their needs
