Volunteers are to provide counseling, social work, and speech therapy that you can do as part of your internship requirement, gap year or career break, or just to get some practical work experience abroad in a different culture.Your role and the types of work/activities you are given may vary and may depend on certain factors such as what’s required at the time that you're there. You'll work as part of the team and may spend various periods of time during the day counseling the orphans, adolescent groups and teenagers.Volunteers will run various different programmes giving support and assistance to the centre these include the Life Skills Programme and the “Women in Need’ programme for the widows from the community.  Make the afternoons fun and exciting for these lovely children by playing games, helping them with homework and just being there to give them the attention that they so appreciate.After-school drama or sports - Take some time out after school to set up after school sports or drama clubs, the children love it and it's a great way to get to know them better in a relaxed and fun environment.
