Volunteer @ Orphanage/Children Homes
Regarding the motherhood of Nepal, high mortality rate of mothers during childbirth, as well as the short life expectancy in general, leaves thousands of children without parents each year in Nepal. As a result, most of these needy children are deprived of education and end up as child laborers. These disadvantaged children need attention, love, care, and education. Orphanages and Children's Homes provide these kids with daily meals, a bed, and some hope. Volunteering in the Orphanage as well in Children's Homes in Nepal is a really great opportunity to experience the obstacles and rewards of serving helpless people. Volunteers will be placed either in orphanages or host families near to the orphanages, where they will spend most of their time with the children, assisting them in their day-to-day routines.
The children are mostly between the ages of four and fifteen and have a basic understanding of English. The general role of the volunteer will be to act as an older sibling: to care for, look after and encourage the children. Volunteers will teach the children general life skills, including health and sanitation, as well as arts, crafts and music. They may also help the children with their school-works. As a volunteer you may also organize tours, games, drawing classes, singing, dancing, painting and other activities that children enjoy.
