Without YOU, WE can't do what we do. YOU make all the difference to these programs. Whether you are taking a sabbatical from work, a gap year from Uni or a volunteer vacation we are here to help make it all happen. We need help with recreation and art activities for at-risk children and youth, child care and support to moms, teaching English class, general labour, and with special projects at orphanages, seniors homes and fund raisers. We can even customize a placement for you.

At the Volunteer House you can enjoy the company of other volunteers or see the sites at your own pace. Either way you wont be alone here and your autonomy is respected. Click on the arrows under each photo and learn more about the volunteer placements:
