Take a step back in time as an orphanage volunteer in Romania, the sunniest place in Europe. Romania is nestled in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains and has a coast along the Black Sea. Romania’s beautiful terrain, castles, medieval towns, and friendly, welcoming locals make volunteering here an exciting, one-of-a-kind experience. As a volunteer in Romania, you’ll enjoy the temperate climate and sightseeing opportunities. Because of heavy forestation, Romania has one of the richest populations of fauna in all of Europe, including wolves, bears and lynxes.

As a volunteer in Romania, you have the chance to help at an orphanage located in Valea Screzii, a small village near the Carpathian Mountains. Life has changed little there over the last hundred years, and you can expect to see horses and carts on a daily basis. Try your hand at agriculture by helping on the orphanage’s small farm or be inspired by working with the children as they learn and play.

Possible volunteer projects include:

- Teaching English and playing with the children
- Working in a small clinic at the orphanage (for licensed doctors only)
- Assisting with various construction and building restoration projects
