Overseas Care Projects
No previous experience or qualifications are needed, simply a passion to care for those less fortunate than yourself.
A Care placement with Projects Abroad offers the chance to work in either orphanages or care centres with children and adults from underprivileged backgrounds. In some destinations this will require caring for street children and people with varying mental and physical disabilities.
The main role of a volunteer will be to help out with the day-to-day running of these centres. You will assist with meal times, washing, dressing and also organising games, activities and day trips. Many volunteers choose to incorporate their own interests and talents in to these activities. This may include sports matches or arts and crafts sessions.
Conditions in these orphanages and care centres are often basic and the staff heavily overworked. Volunteers make an extremely worthwhile contribution by providing extra help to the local staff in caring for some of the developing world’s most vulnerable people. An experience like this is sure to be rewarding not only for the children and adults you work with, but also for you. You will gain a better understanding of the world in which we live.
If you are a qualified care worker and would like to volunteer as a professional, you can do so by undertaking a project with Projects Abroad PRO. The main focus of these placements is to match your skills with a placement that is ideally suited to your experience. Please visit our specialist website for professionals to find out more.
