The Organization

The NGO was founded on 1979, when a group of eleven Dominicans who were worried after the results of hurricanes David and Federico, who rapidly responded the call of the former First Lady of the Republic, Mrs. Renée Klang de Guzmán, and the Austrian Consul Mr. Juan Ostreicher, to care for abandoned children and youth by group in communities similar to families”. The founder who became an orphan of a mother when he was very young felt the need of protecting orphaned and abandoned children who were straying the streets of Europe after the Second World War.

Focus Areas:

• Children and family
• Children's rights
• Children and health
• Children and education
• Emergency relief
• Strengthening women
• Volunteer Work Activities

Your work will consist in supporting the staff with the care of children’s daily needs, spending time with them, initiating games.
Even though there are many works in children’s area this organization does not have enough staff. They really need help. And also children need more attention from other people because they cannot get attention from there parents. By placing international volunteers, the organization expects children to get an opportunity to meet people who can give them affection and spent valuable time with volunteers instead of doing only the usual routine.
According to your interests you can organize some activities like music, dance and craft. Since children live this shelter they don’t have many opportunities to go to other places.
In this project there are many opportunities you can develop.
