It is a public institution to give shelter, food and education to abandoned and orphan children from 7 to 17 years old. There are around 40 children, living together with their tutors or teachers. In the mornings or in the afternoons they go to school, so either in the morning or in the afternoon they have free time to do their homework or play. The volunteers can help them in these activities, even more, these kids lack of attention from someone else will be very happy to play with the volunteers and the volunteer will be a great emotional support for them.

The boys spend most of the time in the orphanage building, having much time for themselves. The volunteer can help the boy in having a less boring life, they can play football or any sport, the kids are eager to learn new things. Only male volunteers for this program.
