Volunteering your time and skills is a great way to Serve at Children of the Promise. We accept groups as well as individuals who are wanting to serve along side us in Haiti.
Why do we need you?
Children of the Promise is a non-profit organization and we rely solely on the hearts and generosity of those who support us with donations and with their time serving in Haiti. In order to give our children the best care possible, we have organized our efforts in Haiti into 3 groups, each with important and specific roles:
Our Haitian staff of men and women are the primary caregivers to the children. We have a paid staff of over 60 who live in the area and come to our campus each day to serve as nannies, laundry ladies, janitors, yard workers, and cooks. These men and women are the consistent figures in Haiti who drive COTP. Many have been with us for over 10 years.
Our International staff is made up of individuals from all over the world who have committed to serve with us for 6 months to a year or more. They raise all their own funds to travel to and live in Haiti. Their focus is to administrate and oversee the running of COTP. This staff includes a nurse, maintenance person, teacher, adoption worker, and field director.
Short-term volunteering is where you come in. Maintaining our facilities and taking care of the needs of 50 children can be overwhelming at times. Often, after our nannies have fed, bathed, and changed the children there is little time or energy left for play and special attention. The love, care, and attention our children receive from short-term volunteers is essential for their development and well-being. We are also rely on volunteers to help maintain our compound and do various work projects to provide a clean, safe, and enjoyable place for our children to live.
There is no typical short term volunteer!
Short term volunteers normally come for a stay between one week to six months. The activities that they are involved in vary greatly based on their skills, interests, and experience. Those who want to work directly with the children will help with:
-One on One time/Group Activities
-Child Hygiene: Teeth Brushing, Lotioning, Hair washing, etc
-Basic Child Care: Caring for sick babies or helping nannies with baby care
-Sanitizing the Baby House
In addition to working directly with the babies, we also always have work projects and maintenance around the facility that needs to be done. This work could range from:
-Sanitizing Baby House
-And Much More
