You will work on an honorary basis in a children´s home of the "Fundación Aliñambi". You will look after the children, take care of their needs, play with them, teach them. Both children´s homes are located close to Sangolqui, at about 40 km from Quito
The help of voluntary workers is highly appreciated and urgently needed in the communities! Both children´s homes live on donations. Participation in a language course (40 hours) is a condition for taking part in these projects and places are only then available for you.
The work in a children´s home requires a great deal of self-initiative and organizing ability! Professional staff usually is overwhelmed with work and so there often is too little time left for a thorough training of our volunteers.
Ecuador is a developing country. The children´s homes need allrounders who like to work on their own initiative and can lend a hand where ever they are needed.
