We look for volunteers who are passionate about children and are ready to engage all their time for the work in the orphanage. Volunteers usually spend with the kids all they long - bathing, dressing up, serving food, sport activites, teaching etc. We also look for manual workers who could help us with building a school.

We also look for agriculture volunteers to help on our farm aimed to increase sustainability of United Hearts.

Both programmes may be combined.
