Description

Orphanage Child Care Volunteer project is one of the most worthwhile activities you can get involved in, whether it is in a developed or a developing country. Throughout the world, there are vast numbers of children who are orphaned or neglected, and in need of love, care and affection. Care placements are a chance for volunteers on a college vacation, gap year or career break to really make a difference to children who would otherwise have little or no mental stimulation in their lives. People are often unaware of the impact they can have on another person's life, with even the smallest gesture. Spending as little as one month working in an orphanage or care center, a volunteer can have a hugely significant and positive impact on the lives of underprivileged children.As a care volunteer working with children in orphanages, you would be helping the kids to learn life-skills that parents would normally teach. By getting involved in the day-to-day running of an orphanage - making sure children are fed, washed and dressed, and paying them personal attention - you will be making a really positive impact on their lives. There is always scope for any talents or interests you may have to be utilized. Art & crafts or music are always popular activities and many care placements have outside areas where sports and games can be played. Many volunteers also help to educate the children in personal hygiene and social skills. Opportunities exist in our orphanages for volunteers to be more involved in the teaching or ?medical side of care work. You may spend your afternoon helping the older children with their homework on their return from school, or if you have the relevant skills you can administer first aid to any children in need. The work volunteers do can be challenging at times but the strength and resilience of the children will inspire you to persevere. Our Ghanaian orphanage child care volunteer program seeks to address the numerous problems that many children without proper education, health care, food, love and attention face as a result of their parents not being there for them. Orphans everywhere need care and love; you will be placed in either rural or urban environments where you will teach, love and care for these less fortunate children. You will help design and execute effective teaching programs, activities and events to inspire and develop the children talent and abilities through human interaction and care. This program will also give you an opportunity to explore and understand the Ghanaian people and their culture through the eyes of the people you are helping.
