Volunteering with children in an orphanage can be one of the most rewarding experiences in a persons life.

Volunteers on this programme will work alongside the existing orphanage staff to care for the children. This includes feeding, dressing, teaching and playing with the children, as well as cleaning, and preparing meals. If you choose to volunteer in an orphanage, you need to be adaptable, flexible and prepared to hear upsetting and often heartbreaking stories of the orphaned children's backgrounds.

Volunteers will also assist staff in the daily running as well as attending meetings on behalf of the orphanage. Assisting in the office of the orphanage is also an option if you think you can help make the centre run more smoothly.
