Volunteer and Orphanage Work in Southeast Asia
Volunteering with orphans and special needs children in Southeast Asia is a fulfilling and life changing experience. Projects Abroad’s Care program allows volunteers to work in care centres, kindergartens, and orphanages with Southeast Asian children of all age groups, from newborns to teenagers. Placements are available in the Southeast Asian nations of Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam and the program is open to all volunteers including those in high school or college, on a gap year, or looking for a career break.
The staff at these facilities is often overworked and unable to provide these children and orphans with individual attention and support. Volunteers play a vital role in bridging this gap and giving the love, care, and affection that every child deserves. Volunteer opportunities are available for two weeks, one month, and more. No previous volunteer or social work experience is required; all that is needed is a desire to help!
Volunteering with Children and Orphans in Southeast Asia- What to Expect
Volunteering in Southeast Asia is a rewarding experience and changing the life of a child or orphan is something very special. Volunteers are often part teacher, part caretaker, and part friend. They help with basic day-to-day functions of the centre, engage in learning activities, and provide emotional support to children who have overcome so much in life. Many children have disabilities or HIV/AIDS, while others have been abandoned, neglected, or received little formal education. Volunteering in Southeast Asia is an opportunity to grow personally, while having the opportunity to make a profound difference in the world.
