Help in a Kindergarten

This childcare centre is located on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Facing an urgent need for a kindergarten, a local mother used her own resources to buy a land and build 3 classrooms and a playground. Thanks to donations and the contribution from various volunteers and neighbours, she managed to build a safe place for 60 children aged 3-5 to play, eat, share and start the first stages of their education. The kindergarten is an educational center where the kids can develop both intellectually and emotionally.

A full time teacher is training mothers and volunteers to help with educational activities : arts, music and sports. The children get breakfast and a warm lunch every day. The two main teachers, Lore and Vivi, are working every day with children to develop their sense of solidarity and mutual respect.

Volunteers Tasks: 

  • Help the two teachers cook and serve the food, do the dishes, the cleaning or any other tasks there are to be done 
  • Interact with the children through games, songs, drawings and workshops. 
  • Help take care of the children. 
  • Help to plan the activities in the kindergarten. 
  • Teach the children numbers, the alphabet in Spanish, their first English words, etc. 
  • Maintain personal contact and be a role model for the kids. 

This project is available for minimum 2 weeks outside school holidays (2 weeks in July and summer holidays in December-January). 

Teaching English

We offer various projects to teach English to children and adults for Native English speakers, we also have some School support projects for good Spanish speakers. 

Volunteer in an Orphanage

These 3 houses in the suburbs of Buenos Aires are the new home of around 40 children and teenagers. This shelter is registered as an NGO, it is not financially supported by the Government.

The kids all have different stories : some have been abandoned by their parents, others have been removed from their families because their parents have been imprisoned or are in rehabilitation due to psychological disorders.

This children center gives love and attention to the children who have lost their families. 2 staff members take care of 15 children and always need help in different areas.

This program is available all year long for a minimum stay of one month. During school holidays (December-January) volunteers will be working at the shelter from 5.30pm as the children spend afternoons in a summer camp.
