Volunteer work

Volunteers will be seen as general helpers, assisting the supervisors in all needs, such as caring and teaching of the children, helping with house working and gardening and most importantly taking care their English education.

Volunteers will work 6 days a week with the option to collect the free days for a longer holiday. 

Volunteers should stay at least 3 months but longer stays are preferred.

Are you ready for volunteering ?


PROACTIVE - Jump in and maintain a positive attitude.

PATIENT - Life in your host country moves slower than one might be used to. Relax and enjoy the slow pace. Remember, not everything is as organized and predictable as life in your home countries.

FLEXIBLE - Plans change, roads get flooded, and electricity goes out. Realize that not everything goes as planned, but good intention is always there.

CONSIDERATE Respect those around you and be a reliable worker at the program site. Advise the supervisor if you are sick and can not work.

RESPECTFUL - Remember that the local people you are working with, side by side, do so with little or no salary. They do this work because they believe in it. There are times when you may not agree with or understand the organizations decisions or direction. Although your suggestions are always welcome, your faith, respect and consideration for their long term work and commitment is appreciated.

FRIENDLY - In order to truly help someone you must get to know them. Smile, approach and see how fast you are welcomed into the community.

TOLERANT - The food, the culture, the smells and the sounds will be unfamiliar to you at first. We recommend that you dive in and experience life head-on. You will be surprised at how quickly you will adapt.
