In Colombia it is normal for families to look after their disable children in their own homes, they never have the opportunity to go to school or have employment and their families struggle a lot to find funds to pay for them to have their special needs and education met.

Volunteer at this Day Care center which supports the learning development of children and adults with special needs. This is the only center of its kind in La Mesa and strives to support hundreds of people in the community. Volunteers will help the local staff with special education classes such as sensory space management, fine motor skills, speech therapy, reading comprehension, text interpretation, hearing skills, as well as writing skills.

Volunteers are also needed to support the team with cultural activities, art, craft, sports (swimming, athletics, and dance), gardening, music, and English lessons. Due to the lack of adequate number of staff, volunteers for this project will need to be pro-active, willing to work with limited direction, and come with a can-do enthusiastic attitude, volunteers will need to bring with them material for this purpose. ABV Coordinators will help with direction and suggestions, but this program needs enthusiastic participants.

  • Arrival: First weekend of each Month
