CHILD CARE (Caring for children)

There are three types of caring for children projects.

1.Caring for disabled children.

Although Vietnam has now been at peace for many years, effects from war continue to haunt not only the adult population of this beautiful country but also its children. Volunteers have the opportunity to work in institutions caring for orphan/street children or disabled children and young people affected by Agent Orange or in schools, hospitals and community clinics looking after mentally disabled children. Work is somewhat varied dependent on the institution where the volunteer is placed, however typical examples of jobs and tasks can include; assisting local staff in providing rehabilitation exercises and therapist treatments for children, playing with children and entertaining/educating them with games, music, arts and other exercises, helping to develop fundraising initiatives to ensure ongoing funding for these institutions and teaching English to local staff.

 

 

2.Caring & teaching for children from poor background

For this project children are orphan or abandoned/street children and they are normal (not disabled). The main work will be spent time with children, playing with them, care to them and help them to feel warm on their normal difficult life. A part from caring work, there will be a possibility to do some basic teaching.
