Volunteer Abroad For Families

We have two children aged 10 and 12 years and would love to Volunteer Abroad with our children for a period of 2-3 months. Can anyone tell us about their experience with children volunteering abroad and which company to go through? Any help would be much appreciated.

Have a look at volunteering with your children in Nepal

Hi, if you have children and want them to enjoy their time while you are volunteering then try a rural placement in Nepal. Because children are a very important part of Nepali culture they will make lots of friends and have a great time. Also its very safe because everyone knows everyone and visitors are treated as honoured guests.

This will give you an opportunity to do something meaningful while on holiday, You will be amazed how little can make such a BIG difference, and to have a life changing experience for yourself and make a better world for others.

volunteering with kids

We would be happy to give you some advice and names and email adresses of placements or Organiozations that are used to work with families. All this placements will be supported by well known international donors. We will name you the donors and give you the contacts of the local project, so you can contact them to be sure. With a family, we will try to fiend a project where a western developmentworker is working in. Just let us know the country and months you want to volunteer in and we will drop you an email with some adresses.

We are a group of former volunteers and people working with international Organizations who are happy to help anyone interested in Volunteering.

Volunteering abroad is a

Volunteering abroad is a worthwhile experience that allows you to help a community while really getting to know a culture. While rewarding, there is a lot of preparation, both physical and mental, that is necessary to get you ready for a volunteer vacation. I am postgraduate in Hospitality and I Volunteered at an old age home in Hong Kong through http://www.theinterngroup.com/hong-kong/ and I can tell you that you need a good preparation for this.To get an idea of what to expect, it's a good idea to connect with past volunteers. Ask them their opinion of the organization, what went well, what went wrong, what to expect and what to pack. The next important step is to really make a difference, try to find a project where you can really utilize your skills. If you've studied medicine, help take care of sick children or do hospital work. If you're good with kids or enjoy teaching, sign up for an orphanage project or teach English. And if you're not sure where you'd be best placed, ask the organization you're going through where the most help is needed.
