I am volunteering through IVHQ. The Childcare project in Guatemala provides individual attention and assistance to children from poor homes and communities. Many children at the projects we work with are affected by poor home life, little to no schooling and alcohol or drug abuse among their families. You will work in schools and daycare centers. Work varies but generally consists of providing individual attention, playing with children, organizing games and activities, educating children regarding hygiene and assisting with homework. You play an important role in working alongside local staff to improve the educational, emotional, and hygiene conditions of the children.
