Care & Community in China

Volunteers who are eager to work with children in the rapidly changing country of China can join care and community projects taking place in our partner care centres in Chengdu. Chengdu is a city that manages to be both modernising and traditionally Chinese at the same time.

Daily tasks include playing games with the children and helping them with basic education. Your time will also be spent doing practical activities like renovating, painting, and decorating.

Volunteers offer a valuable contribution and help the local staff. You will also add to the children’s quality of life, not only through the development of their social skills, but also through exposing them to new cultures and ideas.

You will live in either hostel accommodation with other volunteers, or in a volunteer apartment.

Your weekend will be spent visiting the panda sanctuary, which Chengdu is famous for. You'll also get the opportunity to visit the Du Jiang Yan water project, visit the Leshan Giant Buddha or spend a day exploring more of the city sites that Chengdu has to offer.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
