Do you have a big heart? Can you provide care and support for some of Peru's most vulnerable children?
The Global Volunteer Network has opportunities for volunteers to work at a clinic for mentally and physically disabled children.
In a developing country like Peru, where poverty means that the most disadvantaged often receive less than anyone else, there is a need for volunteers to provide care and kindness to the youngest sufferers of mental and physical disabilities. The clinic is home to children, toddlers and very young babies.
The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the local community in Peru where you will serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organizations in Peru to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
Volunteers work at a clinic for mentally and physically disabled children. This project does not require any qualification or experience.
Volunteers will work organising arts and crafts, playing with kids in the on-site playground, assisting with physical therapy and helping the children during meal times. Volunteers also help the children with personal hygiene including going to the bathroom, brushing teeth and bathing.
