Education and therapy for special needs children in Ecuador

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: CADIP

Within this program, international volunteers will support schools for children with disabilities in Quito (in the Andean highlands region), in Esmeraldas (in the Coast region) and in Puyo (in the Amazon). These schools offer programs for children to prepare them for their future and to teach them how to become independent individuals. The aim of the project is to provide education to children with motor disabilities and to facilitate the acquisition of skills and their integration into society, as well as to promote the involvement of parents in the education process and to raise awareness and acceptance of children with cerebral palsy in the community. Volunteers interested in this project will need to stay a minimum of five months, in order to follow up with the children’s progress. The volunteers will assist the teachers in providing physical therapy, language therapy, sports and recreation to the children. Volunteers will be taking care of the children, playing and teaching them new games. The volunteers will also help the children during lunch time, helping them to learn how to eat by themselves.

  • Duration of the project: Minimum time for volunteering is 12 weeks, up to 12 months.
