SVI - Don Bosco

Гансхорен, Бельгия Working with kids

Don Bosco was one of the best educators of modern times as he developed success-oriented teaching methods. Every youth has a huge potential. The whole educational work is done by pupil’s parents, teachers, educators and volunteers altogether. The objective is to make sure the youth is in the best conditions to experience in a positive way his abilities.
Thus, the youth feels empowered because he realizes that he has true abilities, gains self-esteem and throws himself into his homework because he enjoys doing it.
The main objective is to help these young people to achieve academic, human and social success through three cornerstones:
■ Reason: discussing on issues drives them to use their abilities to think, to make decisions and to get involved.
■ Religion: as a way to look for meaning in their lives.
■ Love: which is shown by the educators through being a loving, strict and attentive person and by the youth by being grateful.
■ This teaching method is based on confidence in youths’ positive future.

Misión México - Children's Refuge

Tapachula, Mexico Working with kids

Misión México provides a loving, secure home for children and young adults of all ages who have been abused, neglected, orphaned or abandoned.

Children and young adults are referred to us by the Government Welfare Department and we provide a loving and stable home for them for as long as they need it. The number of children and young adults in our care changes constantly, but on average we care for between 30 and 40 children on a permanent basis.

Almost all of the children and young adults have suffered extreme poverty and abuse. Some have experienced unspeakable violence.

Since it was established in 2001, Misión México has helped transform the lives of more than 250 children, giving them a much deserved second chance at life. All are regaining a sense of confidence and self respect having found Misión México.

The refuge resembles a family home rather than an institution, where the children feel loved and secure. The children attend school, which some of them have not experienced before. They also have access to tutors to help with their studies, and access to education psychologists and therapists.

The children are also learning to swim and surf and are the only surfers in Tapachula! Surfing is a previously unknown activity in the area, yet it has become a uniquely transforming sporting activity for these children.

Our surfing programme is being introduced to enable the kids to find confidence in themselves and a belief that they can achieve anything they want.

Living at Misión México is an intense but wonderful time for volunteers. We cover every day from 5.30am until 9.30pm (split into no more than eight hour shifts) and are responsible for helping with the daily running of the refuge - such as wake-up, chore supervision, homework, meal supervision, getting ready for school, bed-time and other activities like sport, art and craft or whatever skill you want to bring to the house.

We need people who are loving but can also discipline the children. These children come to us from a history of abuse, neglect and poverty. Part of their education with us is not only going to school, but also learning how to be respectful, look after their things and learn to live with others as a family. It is important to stress that this isn't a holiday but a busy work time for volunteers, but it is so rewarding and you will walk away from here with so much love for the children. Volunteers will have at least one full day off every week to rest.

Conditions

Our contribution fee is set at 4000 Mexican pesos (approx. 150 GBP) and payment of the fee is to be made on arrival, in local currency, if your application is successful. The contribution fee covers the costs associated with our volunteer accommodations and administration. This includes, but is not limited to, the cost of electricity, maintenance and one meal a day for volunteers (eaten with the children at lunch time).
