Caring For And Teaching Under-Privileged Children
Deva, Romania Volunteer Romania NGO | Volunteer Romania
Establish in Romania since 2008 with the simple aim of creating smiles and a feeling of self-worth among children and under-privileged we work with

Project Details

Assisting at a School for children with special needs, helping their regular carers and teachers with their lessons and everyday activities.

At the special needs centre there is always a need for help, casual and professional help in the physiotherapy, occupational therapy and psychology departments, it’s great if you have experience in this field, but not necessary as there are many other children who need a helping hand just putting a coat on, holding a pencil, eating or most of all encouraging.
The special needs centre has classes with up to ten children with varying needs, we have Autistic, Downs Syndrome, disabled and deaf children, some more serious than others, some with additional ailments, but they are all characters and they all wear great big smiles especially once they get to know you. Each class has a teacher and if the teacher is lucky a local volunteer.
You as a volunteer here, you will be an assistant to the teacher and volunteer. The language barrier is overcome very quickly and the children will love having you around to help them. These children love visitors and will always try to have a laugh and a joke with you.
This project runs during school term times only so please ask about specific dates
