DAY CARE CENTER - SOUTH OF QUITO
Foundation T.N. is located in the South of Quito, the capital of the Republic of Ecuador, it offers medical and day care center services. Most necessities of people with lower economical resources are located towards the south of the city. The foundation has been open for 32 years and has become one of the most respected organizations in Quito.
The foundation has 2 children's centers ranging from infant to 5 years of age. Each center has a capactiy to offer services to 170 chilren. Volunteers can assist the workers in diverse tasks at the centers such as: early childhood stimulation, pre-scholar preparation, aid in school work, teaching fun games and songs, helping to teach skills in hygiene and implementing good nutritional habits.
In addition, the afternoons at the centers receive older youth in order to give them lunch and help them with their homework.
This is a type of volunteer work where you are going to work with children and youth who are very vulnerable and who make strong bonds, becoming closely attached with those close to them. They will miss you and feel sad if you do not show up and it is very important that you tell the children with anticipation when you will be leaving, mostly because of the strong bonds they make and the history they have.
Time: A minimum stay of 1 week.
Regular Time Schedule: The centers are open from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm. The schedules can be made very flexible.
WHAT VOLUNTEERS SAY
"I had an absolutely brilliant time with Fundacion Bolivar Education. This experience totally changed my outlook and now I’m even reconsidering what it is I want to do and study. I suggest to anyone who may be questioning their career paths to actually go and work hands on volunteering to get a real feel for it. You may find you like it, hate it, or fall completely in love with whatever it is you want to do. But as for myself I know I have to come back to Ecuador again, the inspiration and impact it has made on me will keep me forever grateful."
