Groups volunteering on a Care project in Ethiopia will prove invaluable to the staff and children at the kindergarten or day centre where they work. Our placements are based in centres for underprivileged children and provide a haven where children can learn and play in a safe and supportive environment.
The role of our Care volunteers is to assist staff in their day-to-day tasks such as dressing and feeding the children, as well as organising games, sports and activities and providing much needed care and attention for those children that attend the centre. As the number of tourists visiting Ethiopia increases, speaking English is becoming a valuable skill to have for Ethiopian people so you may find you can take part in some informal English teaching during your placement.
Projects are based in the capital city of Addis Ababa, a rapidly growing city that combines elements of old and new Ethiopia. First-time visitors are amazed by the variety of lush landscapes and spectacular scenery that the country offers. Projects Abroad volunteers live with local host families during their placement, which guarantees that they experience another underrated aspect of Ethiopia - its friendly and welcoming people. This region of Africa still needs much support, and it is a great location for anyone wishing to help by doing some overseas voluntary work.
This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
