International Volunteers arranges volunteer opportunities at orphanages and child welfare organizations in one of several locations throughout Ecuador. The children come from a variety of situations, including loss of one or both parents, physical and sexual abuse, extreme poverty, and more suffering than any child should have to bear. Many of these children have been denied the chance at an education, as well as the basics for survival: food and shelter.
Volunteers will spend time with the children leading activities and games, helping at meal times, and teaching. The facilities are always in need of upkeep, and volunteers are welcome to assist with projects to improve the facilities, as well as in daily activities with the children.
