Social Volunteering in a Centre for Children with Special Needs

Support the local team for a life-changing experience in Colombia!

Volunteers who take part in this programme are committing to bring help and support to the local team, by organising and facilitating activities to encourage children with special needs to gain more independence.

Social volunteering in Colombia - GlobAlongIn Colombia, people with special needs are usually looked after by their parents or relatives.

Few people are aware of their actual needs, which can be overlooked.

This centre is very under-staffed and the staff providing these children with care and support is not qualified.

That is why they need volunteers to join the team.

Your help could make a real difference to the everyday lives of these children!
