Orphanage Volunteer

Orphanage Volunteer Work India

The Program

The Children placed in Orphanage really need love & care, just like our children. Every child needs love, kindness, attention and care. When the little human beings are born, they should be surrounded by loving people. But unfortunately, life dictates its harsh laws, and many children do not have anyone close who would care for them. Orphan children, like all children in the world deserve to be happy. Due to various circumstances, they began their lives with sadness in their eyes, it’s through customs and traditions that children of different sexes are not provided with equal treatment; ignorance among young people about contraception and about the consequences of unwanted pregnancy, rape, and also severe disease of children, are causes for which parents abandon children; also, death of relatives is a cause for kids to become orphans – there are many inevitable realities of society. But also, almost as old as the concept of orphan is, and as old society is, there’s also the concept of volunteerism. Orphanage Volunteer Work is a special view of life; it’s all very bright and good. There were always people who saw a higher purpose in serving others for the grater good. Therefore, we need “good people” or volunteers, who will give kindness and necessary care to orphans. The purpose of our program is to find people that are able and willing to help children in orphanages.

Work for Volunteers

In our orphanage program volunteers will be included in some of the daily chores. For example they will teach them basic English and Mathematics, help them in their daily school homework, organize health awareness program, the importance of sanitation and aid, like the importance of brushing their teeth, taking showers etc; they will also organize fun games for them that involve drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative educational and extracurricular activities; they will help with work in the kitchen, like cooking and distribution of food. Volunteers will participate in the daily lives of children, taking care of them, striving to develop their qualities, and give them happy moments in life. Volunteers will work with children aged 0 to 18 years. This is a very tender age when a child is formed as an individual and absorbs everything like a sponge, so he needs a lot of attention, care and energy and, of course, a kind heart, patience and understanding. As a Volunteer you can also be involved in administrative works of the orphanage and Other activities depending upon the time, situation, and need.

Skills Required for Program

There is no specific skill requirement to join the volunteering program. But volunteers need to love and be passionate about helping those who are in need, and also they have to like to learn about the culture/life of the people in the country.
