Make a difference in the Volunteer Work Orphanage Quito Ecuador program. In the last two decades the population of Ecuador has doubled with growing incidences of abandoned children on the streets or in hospitals. Our orphanage and a small school are enclosed in the same location. The orphanage is located in a safe area on the outskirts of Quito, about 30 minutes by bus from capital’s old town or new town. Children end up at the orphanage because they come from drug-addicted families or parents who are in jail or because they are orphans, street children or are escaping difficult situations.
The orphanage provides foster children a home in a house run by a very small staff. In addition to the home, there is an elementary school, a bakery, a small carpentry area, a sewing room and a green-house. For this critical project, there is a need for volunteers who are willing to share their efforts and love for children, and perhaps help these underprivileged children by teaching basic English or Spanish. (Depending on the school’s needs, other subjects such as computers and physical education may be taught.) Do Volunteer Work Orphanage Quito Ecuador.
Volunteers also help by feeding, caring for, and simply playing with these very young children or harvesting in the green house in the afternoons.
Without this affordable orphanage project, many of these children would be abandoned and homeless. Volunteers also help in developing creative programs in art, music, dance, sports, etc. On some days, additional help with homework, sanitation, cooking, and administration might be requested. Spending time with the orphans will be the most valuable work, for developing confidence in themselves and fostering friendships.
The volunteer in Ecuador orphanage program offers you a most wonderful and important opportunity: the chance to work with orphans and share your love, skills and efforts with poor children.
