IVHQ Argentina Review

Overall, I had a great time in Argentina. I took a group of ten students from our school, but the IVHQ staff made organizing the trip very easy. We did have a last minute program change due to flooding, but I think we were easily able to adjust.

How can this program be improved?

With only being there one week, our schedule was very jam-packed. A little more free time to see the sites would have been nice.

Hi Staci, travelling abroad is never easy (especially if you are coordinating a group of 10 people!!) but it’s great to hear that with the support of IVHQ we were able to help make it as smooth as possible. We hope to see you all on another of our programs again in the future. Thanks for volunteering with IVHQ!

Volunteering with IVHQ in Childcare, Argentina

I spent 2 months with IVHQ in Argentina working in the childcare programme. On a regular day we would arrive at 9 in the morning and work until midday, playing the role of camp-leaders at a summer camp. We would each assign ourselves to a certain age-group (ranging from 4-11) where we were joint by other young (18-26) locals who worked at the camp. Together, we would organise activities for the kids to do during the morning. Examples include daily swimming (provided the weather was nice, as it usually was), football, some form of dodgeball, treasure hunts, mock olympics, making christmas cards using leaves/stones and so on. There is even the opportunity for you to set up your own activities, so I found some willing 10 & 11 year old boys to teach rugby. The kids are amazing, all so happy and friendly, along with the very welcoming local workers, so you will have no problems fitting in. However, I must warn you that if you speak little Spanish you may struggle, as only one of the locals I met would speak any English to us. You must also realise what you are there to do... you are helping out as a camp-leader, not eliminating all poverty in the neighbourhood in two weeks. Though it may seem you are not giving a lot of constructive help, you must realise that you are opening the kids eyes to different cultures and languages while also providing them with holiday activities and having a great time while doing it! If you have the financial means it would also be worth asking the coordinator of whatever project you undertake whether you can help out, as I'm sure your help could provide more for the kids. Regarding the hostel life, you will meet some amazing people from all over the world and have some great parties in Cordoba!

How can this program be improved?

It seems like an odd concept to me that instead of asking for volunteers help when it is needed they are finding work when it suits the volunteers, this should not be the point of volunteering as I know this was the case with the healthcare in Argentina, where the volunteers were sent to a doctor's office where they were not needed at all. If they are not needed then IVHQ should let them know there won't be any work for them.
