All over the world there are huge numbers of children in need of care and support. By volunteering on a Care placement with Projects Abroad you can help make an invaluable difference to these people’s lives.

Care projects give volunteers of all ages and experience the chance to work with disadvantaged children and vulnerable people outside of formal education. Volunteers are able to work in care centres, orphanages and centres for people with special needs.

The role of a Care volunteer differs depending on the destination and specific placement: each community has different needs which volunteers will address. However, teaching basic English, literacy and numeracy is a vital part of all Care placements. Volunteers also track, evaluate and improve children’s motor and social skills through sports, arts and crafts, and fun games. Volunteers also act as an extra pair of hands, helping out in the day-to-day running of the centre - often care centres are understaffed or lacking in resources, so the additional help is very appreciated.

Projects Abroad have a carefully devised Care Management Plan for each destination in which we work. This allows our volunteers to work towards goals which have been developed according to the needs of the individual placement and individuals at the placement. Each placement has its own goals, which may include:

- Promoting early childhood development
- Improving conversational English, literacy and numeracy
- Promoting special needs care
- Improving hygiene practices and awareness of healthy living
