Like many places around the world, the opportunities for children growing up with special needs in Guatemala can be very limited. These children are often very reactive to personal care and attention, making volunteer assistance in homes and clinics they attend extremely sought after.
You can volunteer with disabled children and babies, helping to provide personal care and assistance with feeding, clothing, bathing, playing games and even physical therapy. The range of disabilities found amongst the children is wide, so volunteers must come prepared to help with both basic life functions and engaging the children in imaginative games.
This project is well suited to compassionate individuals looking to help vulnerable people while volunteering abroad.
You aren’t required to have experience working in Special Needs Care to participate, as you will be working alongside our local team and placement staff.Apply now
