Trabajo social con niños in Sri Lanka

TRANSPARENCIA ante todo

 

Uno de los pilares de nuestro trabajo es la transparencia. Consideramos fundamental que sepas qué sucede con tu dinero cuando eliges participar en nuestros programas. A continuación,  te contamos el destino de tu aporte:

 

TASA DE REGISTRO: verás que todos los programas tienen una  tasa de registro de USD 279, válida por 12 meses desde el comienzo de tu programa. Muy bien; se trata del ÚNICO ingreso que recibe Voluntarios al Mundo por la organización del mismo. No existen costos ocultos, ni comisiones, ni ninguna clase de ayuda económica que percibamos de otras organizaciones; solo trabajamos duro para mantener nuestros costos al mínimo.

¡Te invitamos a comparar precios! Comprueba por ti mismo que nuestras tarifas no solo son competitivas sino, además, mucho más bajas que las de varias otras organizaciones que ofrecen programas similares.

 

¿CUÁL ES LA FUNCIÓN DE LA TASA DE REGISTRO?

 

La tasa de registro asegura tu lugar en el programa seleccionado e incluye: 

Asistencia antes, durante y después de tu viajeMonitoreo y evaluación constante de las organizaciones con las que trabajamosAcceso a nuestra guía informativaCostos de marketing

 

TASA DE ORGANIZACIÓN:  Es la suma que abonarás directamente a nuestro aliado local. La misma ya cuenta con un descuento especial e incluye los costos de alojamiento, comidas, orientación, transporte y pago del staff encargado de brindarte soporte en tu destino. Un porcentaje de esta tasa será destinado al desarrollo de nuevos programas. Si calculas cuánto podrías llegar a gastar en el caso de alojarte en un hotel y comer diariamente en un restaurante, notarás que su costo es mínimo.

Teniendo en cuenta el especial precio de los programas brindados por Voluntarios al Mundo, puedes tener la certeza de que tu pago se dirigirá directamente al proyecto local que has elegido.

Working with Children with Special Needs

The vocational training center carries out formal classes for children with special needs who need to develop their skills. Volunteers from various backgrounds are welcome, as they can choose artistic, technical or other skills to work on and share. They can also share their experiences and enthusiasm with children who not always have the chance of attending formal schooling or vocational training for free.

You may enjoy this program in Badulla, a location in the north of Sri Lanka. This place can be reached with a 12-hour train from Colombo, which is also a great idea to look at the new scenery and have a view of the landscape. The train leaves every day at 5:30am from Colorado Fort Train Station, except on Sundays, and its price is around Rs1000 (20 USD). The local team that will await you may book your tickets in advance if you please. They will also meet you at the airport and lead you to the train, which we highly recommend because of the gorgeous landscapes you can see throughout your journey.

Please note that vocational schools are on holiday during April, August and December. If you plan to participate in this program during these periods, please contact us to arrange the best dates for you.

Working With Children

Many children in Sri Lanka are left orphaned and uncared for because of poverty or a very low standard of living. They live in orphanages, but these places are very poor in their resources. Volunteers who join this project help the staff working at the orphanage with their daily routines such as bathing, dressing, feeding and assisting the children. They also organize physical activities, provide education regarding personal and environmental hygiene and cleaning duties. Based on their experience, volunteers may also give English lessons and help older kids with their homework.

Volunteers may choose in which location they would like to participate in this program, and the current options are Badulla, Galle and Wattala. They need to follow a very strict dressing code; they should dress conservatively, and wear knee length clothing and appropriate tops.

Please note that this project involves working with children at risk, so volunteers need to commit to this program for at least three-weeks.
