The world over, your professional skills in early childhood education and healthcare volunteer programs abroad can be a lifeline for children and families living in poverty. We focus our development work on children in the first 1,000 days of life – from pregnancy to their second birthday – because this is when their brains are developing. Non-invasive healthcare volunteer program assignments abroad include pre- and post-natal counseling, pediatric care, maternal heath and nutrition, breastfeeding support, physical therapy, diabetes screening and education, dental hygiene, proper hand-washing, first-aid training, disease prevention, HIV AIDS & STD education, eye exams, and blood pressure checks.
