"This will include plenty of practical work, helping with the everyday running of the orphanage, such as cleaning, laundry, cooking and the dishes; as well as helping with development of the orphanage's facilities (i.e. painting classrooms, gardening).
Perhaps the most valuable work you will do, however, will simply be spending time with the orphans: playing with them, helping with homework and getting to know them. Volunteers can help to provide the individual care and attention which overworked orphanage staff cannot always do themselves. Forming friendships and helping to foster a sense of family and community is hugely beneficial, as this is something many of the children will have lacked their entire lives. As well spending time with the children on an informal basis, we encourage you to organise games and evening activities."
