return to the volunteer program
Who qualifies? Anyone who is positive, works well with others, has something to contribute and possesses a natural affection for the people we are trying to help (poor children and abandoned mothers). Age, sex, race, religion and nationality make no difference. It helps if you know at least a few basic words in Spanish [we also provide free Spanish lessons]. Some volunteers bring their professional skills, dental or medical, Vets, engineers, ecologists, agronomists; but most of us come to teach & help very poor children or to assist their mothers to become financially independent. We seek long term volunteers (months or years). The minimum term is one month unless you have a compelling reason to apply for less. We welcome your
