  • Location: Clínica Esperança is located in a needy community about 40 min from city center by bus.

Clínica Esperança is a charity project founded in 1997 providing residential placements for children who have big personal, health and social problems (HIV, abuses at home, no parents, mental disorders etc.).


Accomodation:

Host family


Activities:

Assiting the children in whatever they need, providing them food and suport.

Project is currently hosting about 30 kids, from 0 to 15 years old, who are waiting to be adopted or to return to their families, when possible.
The little children stay all day long there, as it works as a kindergarten too; the older children attend school part time and the rest of the time they have activities at the project or outside. The staff is considered as a family by them. The project is open all day long; it has a simple structure, with a big building with common spaces, rooms for activities and meetings, kitchen and dining room, bedrooms and the kindergarten; outside there is a little park and open space to play.


Requirement:

The volunteer needs to have patience, maturity and not to be afraid to work with children with health problem and HIV. As it is an orpahange/home, there are also moments without activities, in which the kids just stay together (the volunteer cannot expect a rich programation with many workshops).
