Orphanage Care Volunteer Placement

Video and Photos


There are many children who have no one to look after them after the death of their parents. These children are forced onto the streets, where they collect rotten food and beg to survive. On the streets, they no longer possess the right of being treated when they get sick, of obtaining an education, or of sleeping under a roof on a full stomach.
At the orphanage, children are taught how to read, write, garden, work with wood, and play sports. They are given a chance at a better life. The primary role of volunteers is to teach supplementary lessons to orphanage and community children. Lessons are centered on the subjects of English and Mathematics with grade levels paralleling those at school.

Yes, I recommend this program

Great experience

i had a really nice experience volunteering with VMN, the 4 weeks program was very immersive, i enjoyed the food and the children were so funny an interesting, the staff were always prompt to pick me up and drop at the orphanage. At first i had a different view about the country Nigeria, but having a first hand experience opened my eyes to see that the people are loving and wonderful people, i also had time to visit a few tourist attractions in lagos, it was really a wonderful experience.
