Project Description: Jesús mi Luz is an orphanage that houses approximately fifty children from ages six to fifteen. Every child living within this orphanage was either abandoned by their parents or rescued from physical or sexual abuse. The orphanage focuses on stabilizing these children by offering psychological, medical and educational support. The children remain in the orphanage for a maximum of two years. After the children show signs of healing, they are transferred to another orphanage where they can begin the adoption process.

 

Volunteer Responsibilities: Homework help, music classes, drawing lessons and theater are all projects in which you can become involved. Volunteers in the past have also enjoyed creating a special class to teach the children their own language. You can organize different activities such as setting up sports, making crafts,  and computer classes with the few computers available. If you are interested, you can work independently with a small group of children. Although not required, it is very useful to have already some experience working with children.
