During the childcare and development volunteering programme, volunteers will provide support to child caregivers. During this programme, volunteers will help to teach children in rural communities while also helping to feed them and teach them about personal hygiene.


  • Volunteers will help to deliver fun and recreational activities. They may also help to cook meals and help the children during mealtimes.
  • They will also help to teach them basic English, including the alphabet, numbers and mathematics, weekdays, shapes and songs.
  • Volunteers are also tasked with helping to weigh the children, which will be used to track their health. They will also promote the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and adhering to a good personal hygiene routine. Volunteers can also deliver classes that show children how to brush their teeth.
