Volunteering in sports
Helping using sport is becoming a very popular way to volunteer. Instead of just teaching and giving care and affection to the children you are volunteering with, sport is a welcomed activity. Not only does it bring a bit of fun and excitement into the children's lives, it is a great stimulus that keeps the children with something to do; after all, they can't get into any trouble if they are only playing.
In Peru the boy's orphanage in Peru welcomes sports minded people as it is a great way to keep the boys entertained and out of any mischief. Lots of creative people tend to help using their sports skills and imagination from assisting in activities that are already present to setting up their own sport activity. The girls at the girls home love dancing and would love to learn new routines. Perhaps you could teach a famous dance routine by an international artist or some traditional dancing from home.
In Ghana, the boys love football but if you take the ideas and equipment they are open to new ideas. Previous volunteers have taught cricket, volleyball, hockey, handball and organised fun sports days and long distance running comps. The world is your oyster, the options are endless! Simply gather the children in any location in a suitable open space and they will follow your lead.
