Improves orphans and abandon lives
In the least developed countries like Nepal where millions of children can not eat, get clothing or education, we are trying to help at least some of them so that they can at least find the true meaning of life. Today’s children will be tomorrow’s Parents. So that this movement can go on and on. We believe that good children can make the good society and also the better world to live.
As an orphanage volunteer, you will collaborate with our staff to teach the basics of the English language and help orphans with life-skills, by participating in administrative chores, health education, games, and by drawing and painting with the children. By working with orphaned children, you will be molding the young minds of talented, blossoming, charming children.
These children are in unfortunate positions in life, and the impression that you leave on them will remain for the rest of their lives. This volunteer work is a great mission and provides a real, life-changing experience for you as well as the children. Some orphanages serve as informal education training centers, and when you volunteer to become involved in this program, you will be teaching these innocent children what it means to have someone who cares for them.
Your general role will be to act as an older sibling: to care for, look after and encourage the children. Depending upon the yours interest and skills, you may usually be involved in any of the following activities; health and sanitation, as well as arts, study, crafts and music.
Sample of activities that you’ll perform:
Help children with sanitation issues such as: brushing teeth, showering, and establishing and maintaining personal hygiene.
Organize fun activities like games, drawing lessons, singing, dancing, and other creative educational activities and extracurricular activities.
Teach English/Math/Science in orphanages or schools (when the children of the orphanage go to their respective schools during the day).
Help with homework; monitoring academic progress, and ensuring children complete their next day’s homework.
Help to skill-train children who cannot go school. Help in food distribution, kitchen work/duties and also design other activities or programs for the children.
