The world over, your professional skills can be a lifeline for children and families living in poverty. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that malnourished and chronically ill children often are stunted, have difficulty learning, and struggle to get and stay well. Stunting is preventable. In some of our host countries, the number of stunted children reaches 50 percent.
When you volunteer as a professional, you help provide sufficient food, nutrition, and health interventions for mothers, children and their families.
Help our resourceful partners with your skills in: obstetrics, maternal care, breastfeeding, mental health, early childhood intervention & family education, preschool, primary & secondary education, nutrition, health & hygiene education, earthbox gardening, agronomy, nursing, disease prevention, drug intervention, building trades, business, marketing, computer literacy, cooperatives and related careers for community development.
In just one or two weeks, you help maximize children’s learning capability and development.
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. It’s also when their life-long physical health and intellectual potential can be enhanced. All are invited to serve on our inclusive, team-oriented service programs.
You can be the change.
