It is a charity project providing residential placements for the children who have HIV. And some of them are orphans. It is located in a needy community about 25 minutes from the center by bus. ICYE Regional Associations have been established to provide support on programme development and training to National Committees in Africa, the Americas, Asia/Pacific, and Europe. The work is co-ordinated and carried out on a voluntary basis by regional boards, except in Europe where there are permanent staff plus an Executive Committee in charge of the various programmes.
The work includes 25 hours a week. Volunteers basically assist staff in day care and supervise children, meanwhile having an opportunity to create and develop other activities. Working with children is normally quite rewarding and it is a good placement for people who like to share and help.
Contact the organization for further details
The volunteers need to be of maturity, responsibility, tolerance. Volunteers are required to enjoy working with children. It is important to be a helpful and dynamic person.
Accommodation: ICYE manages the entire accommodation and supervision during the project period. The volunteer will be entitled to a room in host family with normal standards depending upon the project and it location.
What will I get out of my "ICYE experience"
Through ICYE's long and short-term exchange programmes, young people can be part of a unique international educational experience that combines intercultural learning with voluntary service opportunities. By living aboard with a family or residential project and working in local community development organisations, ICYE volunteers are provided an intercultural experience providing opportunities for learning, self-awareness and global education. Our participants acquire cross cultural skills and problem solving abilities, for their personal and professional development. ICYE helps them to share their experiences, hopes and dreams, and make life-long friendships with people from another country as well as with other international volunteers.
