Orphanage Volunteers

Depending on which part of the World they are located in, Orphanages tend to be either privately or charity funded and almost always have volunteer programmes. Orphanages take care of unwanted and sometimes abused children which means a placement in an orphanage can be emotionally difficult but enormously rewarding. Types of placement vary from short term volunteering (a couple of weeks), longer term volunteering (3 months ish) and professional volunteering (teachers, fluent language speakers, doctors etc).
