Volunteer with children on your gap year and you will help those living in some of the most underdeveloped areas of some of the poorest countries in the world. Some of these places have fallen victim to extreme cases of HIV infection and poverty, resulting in thousands of children being abandoned or neglected with nobody they can turn to for advice or guidance.
A volunteer caring for children abroad can take on many roles but primary focuses usually include education, communication and creativity. Many of these children have lost their homes due to natural disasters or unstable political environments and are looking for someone to help them create new homes to house themselves, friends or family. Volunteers are encouraged to be involved in the lives of the children and their families. Some children may have lost their parents and are looking for role models to respect and look up too.
Volunteer with children abroad and you could not only ensure a better life for a rural, underdeveloped community but also bring a great deal of self-satisfaction. You will make friends for life with the children and in many cases can choose to stay in touch with those you’ve helped.
