Mexico Orphanage Projects

Our orphanage volunteers work in a number of homes in and around Guadalajara.

The orphanages are usually home to about 50 children of different ages. When working with younger children, your daily tasks will be to help bath, cloth and feed the children, putting them down for naps but most importantly spending time playing with the children and keeping them entertained. This is perhaps the most vital role as this is really something that the staff don't have time to do.

The older children go to school during the day so when working with this age group, most of the work will be during the evenings or weekends when the staff will need help with after school activities. The orphanages are often keen for people to help teach English to the older children. Tourism and international trade are vital to the economy in Mexico and the ability to speak just some English can really improve the employment prospects of the children. This is purely optional but you will find simply being at the orphanage is great English practice for the children.

If you're interested in music or drama, why not get the children involved in a play. When I was a volunteer we put on a production of the Wizard of Oz! Doing a play with the kids is a great way to keep them entertained and gives them something to work towards.

If you have a particular interest, we'll encourage you to bring this to the project. For example you may be interested in nature, model making or reading. Why not get the children interested in this too by running a club.

Note all projects working with children require a background check. This is an extra cost of about £10 but we will make the necessary arrangements. Parking tickets, speeding fines, and some criminal convictions will not prevent you from joining us; we simply check if you have any prior convictions relating to harming children.
