THE PROJECT

This project takes place at an orphanage that is home to over 250 boys and girls. It is a space that was created as loving and caring place for children to laugh, learn and grow free from the worries of hunger and pain.

Placement in this long-term volunteer program is ideal for the traveler looking to make a difference in the world. What you get out of the experience will be dependent on what you put in. There will be countless opportunities to utilize your skills no matter your interest, whether that’s in the area of sports, technology or art.

One of the things the things that helps sustain the orphanage is the nearby backpacker’s hostel which they operate. At some point during the program, every volunteer will have a chance to help out here.


YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

Your position will depend on the length of time you are committing to and the skills that you bring with you as a volunteer. Generally, the volunteers are divided into four groups: teachers, house supervisors, activity coordinators and caretakers for the toddlers.

Depending on your background skills and interests, you may be helping out in a variety of projects which may include everything from helping out in the English classes to leading arts and crafts projects, to heading up story time in the library.

You may also help out in the classrooms whether giving computer lessons, working with the Kindergarteners, the gym classes or even with the agriculture classes. Students will also need and welcome your help when it comes time to do their homework. And your love and attention is much appreciated.

All volunteers are required, at some point in their stay, to help at the hostel.


WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

Volunteers from around the world are welcome to volunteer for this project. To make sure that you get the most out of the experience we recommend the following:

  • Patience and respect for all children, staff and fellow volunteers, especially when working with various cultures and limited resources
  • A strong work ethic
  • Only volunteers over 24 yrs of age can be accepted
  • Parental consent and adult supervision for minors is required
  • Basic to intermediate knowledge of Spanish is essential in order to communicate with the children and staff. (If your Spanish is too basic to get by conversationally, we recommend you to take a Spanish course before starting the project.)
  • Placement in this project requires a minimum of 3 months. However, if you all the time you have to spare is a few weeks, you may consider a short term program in the same location
