2 – 8 Weeks Volunteer Program With Children In South America. Argentina. Urgent Position

ARGENTINA / Voluntario Global

DESCRIPTION
This Hogar (Home) receives children and adolescents who have been victims of abuse, physical or psychological harm caused by their parents or caregivers. Here they intend to do everything possible to ensure that children grow up healthy and happy, providing shelter, education, food, clothing, and healthcare. Most of them come from very poor neighborhoods and extreme poverty. Their lack of stability in their lives is reflected in their behavior. Basically, the idea of the Home is to generate the feeling of a family where children can receive the education, care and attention that their families were not able to provide. Some of the children are HIV positive; and many of them have behavioral disorders.

Role of the Volunteer

The volunteer has the opportunity to do a multitude of things such as help the “tias” organizing activities, play with the children, help to feed them during lunch time, help in the cleaning process and much more! This help is invaluable for both the children and the organization.

The standards of living of some of the children takes a toll on their behavior as well. They can sometimes act violently, thus adults have to try to subdue them in case of fights and explain to them that violence is not the solution. One way to help them release their anger and energy is through art or sport activities. The volunteer represents an adult and responsible person they can trust and refer to in case of problem or emergency.
