To say the least, everyone knows the fact that China is one of the most economically stable countries in the world. However, there are still weaker sections in its society, which needs consistent volunteer support for its welfare and development. If you are planning to spend your gap year in China, then the best thing would be to volunteer for some time and observe the society much more closely. If you love to hang around with kids, then you’ll love it even more!

Volunteering in China is a great experience to learn about the ancient Chinese culture and lifestyle while exploring the modern day wonders. It is a great platform for students on their gap year looking for volunteer opportunities in Asia. Beijing, the capital of China, offers a great mix of historical sites along with a series of outstanding modern-day architectural work. You can choose from three different volunteer programs dedicated to children which are as follows:
Childcare Program – Being a volunteer, you will mainly work with infants and toddlers and help in caregiving work. This is a great learning and working opportunity for gap year travelers looking to volunteer work for kids and shower them with unconditional love.
School for Poor Children – This is more like a teaching project where you’ll have to work in the understaffed school as an English teacher. The placement is a primary school that has limited resources and depends a lot on skilled volunteers for support. Due to limited resources, the school authorities cannot afford to employ good English speaking teachers. Hence, your contribution will be highly appreciated.
Disabled Care Program – This is one of the most popular programs in China where you’ll get to work with children and adults suffering from mental disabilities aiming to improve the quality of the lives of these people. You can guide them in their daily chores, help them to learn how to use the computer or provide them with some sort of vocational training etc. It’ll be challenging and rewarding, at the same time!
