The Orphanage Volunteer program is focused on addressing love, care, and attention for individual orphans. Orphanages in Ghana are filled with children from needy homes and the streets, or in situations where one or both parents are no longer living. Unfortunately, most of these facilities are poorly resourced and under-staffed. Flexible, adaptable volunteers are desperately needed to help provide these children with basic needs.
A Day in the Life
Volunteers' duties depend both on the needs of the individual orphanage and on the skills and interests of the volunteers themselves.
Volunteers assist with daily activities such as:
exchange of cultural views
health and hygiene education
mental and physiological support
Volunteers may also assist in orphanage offices.
