Can I volunteer to work for Hope and Homes for Children abroad?
We do not have any volunteering opportunities in our projects overseas as we employ local people and use local expertise or work through local partners. By using local people and skills we help to ensure that our projects are sustainable in the long term.
More generally, Hope and Homes for Children does not support the use of volunteers in orphanages and other children’s institutions and you can read more about our position on “voluntourism” in orphanages in this FAQ section. However, we do use volunteers in the UK.
