Spend some of your time at this special home for children (and some adults) with physical and mental disabilities. This program is perfect for those looking to work with children that require a higher level of care and assistance.

You will be helping to take care of roughly 30 children, as well as assisting the program staff with their daily tasks.

Activities you can look forward to being a part of include therapy sessions, educational lessons, dancing lessons and outdoor activity. You might also find yourself helping to make classroom materials, painting, cutting firewood, and organising the facility.

The main goal of the organisation is to maximise what these children can do on their own, with the hope that one day they are able to get jobs and live fulfilling lives!
