Hogar de niños Alalay is a non-profit organization dedicated to help street children reintegrate into society. Alalay gives them love and teaches them to find their place in the society, self-confidence and responsibility. The children come directly from the streets; most of them are addicted to drugs, so the project also helps them to combat their addiction.
The project sometimes hosts volunteers, but normally they have host families.
The volunteers have to be open-minded, have initiative, creativity, patience and show a lot of affection for the children. They have to be prepared to work in a difficult context and reality because the work with former street children can at times be hard. Motivation is very important and some knowledge of Spanish is preferable. Both sexes are accepted. If the volunteer is to work in Alalay Aldeas, she/he has to live within the project from Monday to Friday.
