Casa de Adocao Rubens Colaco is an orphanage in Maceio for children who are sent by the State department of children and juveniles. It is divided into two parts: there is an area for kids ages 6 to 10 and the nursery, for infants and children up to 5 years of age. The older children go to school during the morning and in the afternoons they return to the orphanage to study, play and do other activities. The younger children stay at the orphanage all day.
Volunteers have the option of working with the older, younger or both groups of children. Working with the older children, the volunteer may develop art, recreational or another type of educational activity. If volunteers prefer to work with the younger group they will be changing diapers, bathing and playing with them.
The key components to our program fees are as follows:
Volunteers are required to meet the following criteria:
Accommodation: Volunteers will be living in Homestay or residence.
Travel Assistance Program: While your own medical insurance may cover you while abroad, all volunteer and intern programs come with a travel assistance program. You are covered for accidents, medical emergency evacuation and more. You can also find information on our site regarding recommended supplementary insurance.
