Though we don't pretend that we can solve all the social problems affecting modern day Jamaica, we can work to make a difference to the prospects of a large number of underprivileged children and adults.But we cannot do this without the help of our volunteers.Please let us know when you apply if you have any work preferences for your Care project.We will work with you to develop a role for you that is beneficial for both you and your work placement.
For volunteers who work at childcare centers, helping with basic education is important as many of the children have received no previous formal education.
Volunteers also help to provide vital information about nutrition and some of the centers we work with have their own small farms on site.
