Volunteering Work Orphan Kids

Taking care of children without parents or homes is indeed the pure worship of God as a human being, and is seen as pure humanitarian work around the world.  Volunteers will be placed in an orphanage where they will live with the children.  The children are mostly between the ages of four to eighteen, and they may or may not have a basic understanding of English. 

The general role of the volunteer in this placement is to act as an older sibling: to take care of, look after, and encourage them to participate in different extracurricular activities. These activities include music, dance, games, and drawing. The skills instilled by these volunteers make the children more independent and leave lasting impressions on their lives.
