Volunteering with Children Quito

24 Mar , 2015  

Volunteering with Children Quito in Ecuador is a child care center project started primarily to serve single working mothers and parents with few economic resources in a poor neighbourhood on the outskirts of Quito. Mothers have been working together for their own benefit and for all the mothers who don’t have a place where their children can stay while they are working. The daycare has been designed for children, who range in age from 1 to 4 years. Many of the children come from very modest backgrounds where their family members are largely illiterate; this center is the only place they can be while their mothers work during the day and also it is the only source of reliable nutrition throughout the day. The Volunteering with Children Quito in Ecuador project is often equipped with minimal resources and is underfunded, understaffed, and poorly managed. As a result, the community loses confidence in child care centres, for failing to make use of its resources. Mothers and children receiving services are provided with little or no attention and care. Your volunteer work can help provide some daily necessities, for example: you will guide them with their first steps and by playing, feeding, watching their social abilities and making handicrafts and help little ones know about the world through play activities. You may also like to get involve in traditional fiestas that the center organises for the children, thereby they cannot forget their own traditions as: day of the deaths, Quito festivities, Christmas, Easter day, family day, among others.
