Volunteer in a Foreign Country

Lend your time, skills, and compassion to help the poor children and families of Guatemala, El Salvador, Malawi, or the United States. Give a week, month, or year of your time to help give the poorest of the poor a fighting chance to survive. With your help we can break the bitter chains of poverty. Join us in by becoming a volunteer with one or more of the dozens of The GOD’S CHILD Project-sponsored health, education, orphan-care, human rights, and community development, health programs.

Explore How You Can Help Children in Need

See first-hand how La Asociacion Nuestros Ahijados and the other GOD’S CHILD Project-networked programs work hand-in-hand to alleviate the suffering of thousands of our poorest brothers and sisters. At the same time, you will learn about and live among the region’s unique culture. A volunteer experience provides you the opportunity to change lives by taking part in meaningful volunteer-centered cultural immersion.
