This grassroots, supportive organization seeks volunteers for meaningful volunteer work with disadvantaged children.

Optional extras include Spanish Lessons, Accommodation and Tours (with 50% of the profits going straight to the projects we work with)

Placements include a School, Kindergarten, and Children’s Home. Volunteers are needed in the following areas:

  • Teaching
