The aim of our Orphanage program is to assist in helping with, and caring for children. Volunteers will participate in the daily routines and can make a great contribution just by being caring and giving the children some much needed attention. Volunteers will work with children of 0 to 6 years old.

There are also groups of mentally challenged children. It is important to note that working with them will be especially challenging, but volunteers will receive help and support from orphanage staff. These children need special care and attention, but the orphanage does not have enough manpower to do so adequately and volunteers are desperately needed.

Volunteers will assist the Orphanage staff with tasks including helping with feeding the children, exercise activities, general cleaning and washing, organizing and facilitating games and plays for the children, educating the children about personal hygiene, and help in other activities with help of orphanage staff.

Here's why more and more people are choosing to become a LOVE VOLUNTEER!

Need - We work directly with local charities on grass-roots community development projects. Our focus is on providing support where it is really needed - not holidays! We keep volunteer numbers at sustainable levels to meet the needs of each project - not to increase revenue!

Impact - By becoming a Love Volunteer you are saying to the world that you are a REAL volunteer and your focus is on supporting people and communities in need. You're not just a tourist and your goals include much more than selfies and hangovers. Your contribution with LV will be real and measurable. You will change lives, and one of them will be your own!

Safety - Your safety is our top priority. We have personally visited and regularly audit all of our projects and accommodations so you can rest assured that your needs will be met, whilst getting the most out of your experience.

Support - With dedicated in-country teams, you know you will have 24/7 support right there when you need it - guaranteed! From simply questions to hospital trips, we will ensure you are supported throughout your placement.

Communication - We pride ourselves in our reputation as always being available when you need us, dealing with your questions quickly, and being prompt with all communications. We are here to help you help the world!

Value - We strive to make volunteering abroad affordable and accessible to everyone. Our program fees are lower, our registration fees are lower - and we encourage you to compare!

Security - We have placed thousands of international volunteers in meaningful voluntary service projects around the world. We have the experience and the reputation, so you know you are in good hands!

Friendship - One of the benefits of volunteering is that you'll meet new people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. This is one of the true benefits of volunteering and we encourage you to make the most of the unique opportunity to develop these cross-cultural friendships.
