Volunteer in Bali with Friends for Asia

Children with Disabilities Volunteer Project

Sometimes, it can be difficult for volunteers to evaluate their own impact, but at the home for children with disabilites the equations are simple. Success is measured with the creation of smiles and laughter.

Volunteering in Bali- A Day in the Life

Children with Disabilities Volunteer Project

As children generally only study half of the day, volunteers will work through the afternoons.

The children you’ll be minding are between the ages of 7 – 18. You’ll be organizing simple games, helping with homework, teaching English, cleaning, cooking and whatever else the home may need. Above all, you’ll be providing these children with a safe environment where they know they are cared for.

Making a Difference by Volunteering in Bali

Children with disabilities face similar challenges all over the world. The help of volunteers is essential in freeing the children and young adults to focus on personal development. Some of these children hail from multiple areas around Bali.

Volunteer Tasks

One of the most important resources for these children is the realization that others genuinely care about your welfare and future is life-changing – especially for those who’ve been neglected for so long. The fact that you’ve flown in from overseas to donate your time and energy only increases the impact.

But your presence also fills a practical need. Free time is a precious commodity when you’re trying to bring up children with disabilities. Every hour a volunteer spends with the children not only ads to the growth of the children, but also gives the hard working staff time to prepare dinner, clean and complete other tasks, they may not normally be able to, due to the supervision time that they must normally offer the children.

Volunteer Qualifications

Children with Disabilities Volunteer Project

Volunteers need to be over the age of 18, do not need any specific qualifications, but should have a basic knowledge of working children and young adults and a lot of patience. Working with children who have disabilities is extremely rewarding work – but can be very challenging. These kids need people who are looking out for them. Volunteers should be able-bodied, flexible and enjoy working outside and with kids.

Friends for Asia requires all volunteers in this project (and all other projects where volunteers work directly with or near children) to submit a clean, certified police background check before volunteer service begins.
