Throughout China every year, many young babies are simply abandoned leaving them orphaned and you can join this project in X'ian to help make a difference.

Abandonment statistics have skyrocketed with the China's "one child" rule (or Family Planning Policy) and the societal value of boy babies only further complicates a dire situation. Most Chinese orphanages are understaffed, short on necessary resources and funds. Orphanage volunteers in China are needed to help provide love and care for these children, assist with homework and demonstrate valuable life skills. Chinese orphans in our programs are lively and inquisitive – they love learning from our volunteers!

The most valuable act a volunteer can offer an orphaned child is the feeling of being wanted and loved. This interaction warms the heart of both the volunteer and child! As an orphanage volunteer in China, you will be involved in many child-focused and enjoyable activities with these children such as feeding the children and preparing them for school. You will also arrange afterschool projects - games and crafts, sports and help them with their homework. You may also teach the children English depending on their age and English capabilities.
