In La Serena volunteers support an orphanage/children's center. Currently the center offers nursery to about 20-25 underage children, some of which are orphans and live at the center full time. This is a very proactive project with over 20 babies and toddlers 9 (numbers may change if they are adopted or in foster care). One of the main characteristic of this project is the incorporation of the families and the community to the educational work. The parents of the children are so poor that they cannot afford to keep their children healthy or well fed. The projects serve as a day care, kindergarten and support center.
Your voluntary teaching work provides you with an opportunity to develop new skills in a very different environment. In addition, your work in the school adds to the educational experience of the children. It is a marvelous experience for them to interact with people from another culture who speak another language. They will learn the things more attentively and enthusiastically, and welcome you open-heartedly. When you leave school in the afternoon you will be content to see that your students have learnt the things taught by you and your efforts are bringing results. This, we are sure, will bring you great personal satisfaction in helping children who have not been so fortunate.
We seek to improve the quality of life of street dogs, educate people about responsible ownership, and in turn educate the dog abandoned giving him up for adoption to families that meets the requirements for a full life in order to close the circle of abuse.
Undergraduate students will observe local dentists and provide hands-on assistance with cleanings, checkups, extractions and restorative care. Hygienists will be able to offer oral hygiene education and first time cleaning for children. Pre-dental students are welcome. You will shadow the local dentist and help manage the lines of patients, assist in record keeping, help with instruments and charting. This is a great chance to gain some hands on experience & knowledge of oral care in a developing country. You can enhance your Spanish skills, build up your resume and help at this understaffed department in a large busy hospital.
