Description

Combining the gorgeous tropical island of Jamaica and the ability to help children in need must surely be the holy grail for many international volunteers? Participants on this fantastic childcare program will work in this Caribbean paradise to care for its at-risk and impoverished children. Many children in the Caribbean face various challenges, including neglect, abuse, trafficking and general lack of care. The organizations that work to address these issues need extra support staff to carry out their daily activities – and that’s where our volunteers come in.

Volunteers could be working with these wonderful children in childcare facilities, homes for children with disabilities or even working alongside government agencies. These projects are severely understaffed and underfunded, which is why they are in urgent need of volunteers. For volunteers who truly want to make a difference in the lives of disadvantaged children, this program serves to protect and care for those who need it most.
