Volunteer will work with children in orphanages or care centres, you will help the kids to learn life-skills that parents would normally teach.
Whether you are a seasoned school teacher with a summer free, an adventure seeker looking to make a difference, or simply curious about a country and way of life drastically different than your own, contributing as a volunteer in an orphanage can be a viable and rewarding option. With the world's estimated 132 million children who sadly fall into the category of orphan, there is no lack of opportunity for you to participate and help improve the variety of issues that an orphan child encounters.
The United Nations defines "orphan" as a child under 18 who has lost one or both of their parents. This does not account for social orphans, children whose parents have been stripped of their parental rights due to neglect, abuse, or inability to care for another human being. When a child does not have a parent that is alive or capable of caring for them, their basic human rights and needs are not met. Their first line of protection is absent, leaving them vulnerable and helpless.
Volunteers report at the orphanage at 8.30 am and leave at 4.00pm .They get involved in the orphanage activities e.g cooking for children,Feeding,Washing utensils,teaching,sports activities etc.
The host families for the volunteers is not far from the orphanage ,so its near.,walking distance.
