About

Volunteer at a Mother-Child Center. This shelter is a government institution for young mothers and their children. This shelter is home to 60 mothers, girls and young children. The teenage mothers and their young infants can stay here, as well as teenage girls who have suffered from sexual abuse. The girls and mothers are all under 18 years old, and the children are aged approximately 0 to 5 years old. There is a lot of emphasis on psychology, as well as learning how to be a mother. Your browser does not support the video tag. Volunteers are much needed at this shelter. The volunteers are asked to organize their own activities. So together with the staff and ABV Volunteer's help, the volunteer has to make a plan for the time he/she will spend there. You can think of activities like crafts, music, art, sports, or something that you like or that you ́re good at. You can plan activities for the babies or for the girls, according to your preference. The volunteer foresees in his/her own supplies. Also, the shelter understaffed and always short on (economical and material) resources, you will often be on your own with the girls and children. This is a year round project. Volunteer houses are typically 830am-12pm, 230pm-430pm Monday to Friday.
