This program is currently not being promoted on Go Overseas by its provider. Check with United Rescue Colombia for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of this program.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

No, I don't recommend this program


Do your research on Michael Camilo Precht, the man who is the head of this organization. I wish I had known his real name before sending him money and committing to this trip. Please don't make the same mistake.
