One of the most wonderful opportunities that working with the children can give you is the chance to share your love and skills with children. Many volunteers have deemed the work life changing. By offering attention and love to the children, you are making a real difference in their lives. Whether you have a background in childcare and education or simply enjoy sharing love, a smile can offer something meaningful to the life of the children deprived of love and care.
In addition, the dialogue and interaction with local staff provides an opportunity for you to share ideas and build morale. In some placements you will quickly pick up on the daily routine while in others you may need to be more creative in coming up with ideas.
