NLCO really welcomes, appreciates and needs volunteers. Our volunteers come from all parts of the world, from varying age groups and bring with them different skills and experiences.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of NLCO. Giving your time, skills and creativity can make an amazing difference.

Volunteering is a two way process and each volunteer leaves us richer for the experience. Our children learn to trust others and have confidence in themselves.

As we have only been operating since 2010 volunteering at NLCO means you can quickly make a meaningful difference and reach out to our desperately poor children.

If you are able to volunteer you will never forget this amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience helping us change children’s lives.

We have very few formal requirements. Unlike other charities we do not expect you to commit to working with us for a minimum period of time or ask you to pay excessive amounts for the privilege of helping us.

We do not ask our volunteers to make a donation of $70 USD per week, which equates to the approximate cost of feeding all our 25 children for one day. The donations will be not required for those who want to volunteer for long periods of time, such as three or six months.

Most volunteers spend their time with us teaching English. However, being a volunteer at NLCO is not just about teaching; it is about being part of our family to provide support and care to our orphans.

Our volunteering program is available throughout the year on a full or part time basis.

Volunteers usually find their experience truly rewarding and leave with many fond memories of our loving children. They often find it difficult to leave. Many try to extend their time with us wherever possible or come back year after year.
