The Work for Orphans program for Divine children home for volunteers is aimed at helping Volunteers do more for disadvantaged children. You can render invaluable help by giving them love and affection, teaching them basic conversational English, helping them in their school subjects, guiding them about personal hygiene and sanitation, taking them out on small excursions and engaging them in extra curricular activities.

It would be an unforgettable and soul enriching experience for you, which may compel you to return again and again to these orphans. Once you get over the initial culture shock of coming and working in Matale, you will realize that helping the orphans will give you immense satisfaction. A typical volunteer helping in an orphanage would help the children with their day to day activities such as: doing homework, making notes, playing with children, helping staff organize the orphanage, providing mental and physiological support, exchanging cultural views, teach them English ...

It all depends on how you want to fill in your volunteering.  You can take care of the orphans at DCOH, or help Moody with the vegetable farm.  You can assist steve buying food for the orphanage.  Or you can go to the market to choose clothes for them.  You can accompany children to the doctor when they are ill.  There is plenty of help you can give.
