Volunteer in Singapore with Volunteering Solutions
There are a variety of opportunities available to volunteers who would like to provide their services in Asia. Volunteering Solutions recently added Singapore as new volunteer program destination in Asia. There are many different reasons why volunteers want to help abroad today. Some people simply provide their assistance abroad in order to get a productive vacation in. If this is the type of work you are interested in, you should certainly do your best to select your program carefully. Singapore has many environmental issues, most of which stem from lack of natural water resources, and extensive pollution. At Volunteering Solutions we offer our volunteers opportunities to make contributions to address these problems along with our local partner organizations in Singapore.
Many charities and NGOs work day in day out to fight issues such as poverty, disease and illiteracy and many of them rely on the support of international volunteers.
While your efforts alone aren’t going to change the world but they can certainly make a tangible difference, making volunteer work abroad an incredibly rewarding experience.
Volunteering Solutions provides special discount for families working together. Many families choose to volunteer while going abroad as a part of the vacations around the world. By including volunteer work in your vacation, you can be productive as you witness new cultures and learn about new ideas and people. Another benefit of volunteering as a family is the fact that minors can volunteer in new and diverse countries when they are accompanied by an adult. By bringing your children along for the adventure of volunteering in countries that desperately need your help, you can build the character of your children while also helping them obtain the experience and skills they will need to become successful later in life.
Though physically small, Singapore is an economic giant. It has been Southeast Asia’s most modern city for over a century. The city blends Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and English cultures and religions. The most exciting aspect of volunteer work abroad in Singapore is the opportunity to travel the famous country and immerse yourself in unfamiliar and exotic cultures. Volunteering Solutions places you at the heart of communities, giving you the chance to live and work alongside local residents and learn their customs and culture.
Volunteering Solutions provides opportunity in 2 different volunteering program options in Singapore, namely: -
1. Volunteer at an Animal Rescue Center
2. Volunteer with Disabled People
Volunteer at an Animal Rescue Center: – This project involves working with the largest wild animal center in Singapore. Volunteers work 5 days per week for around 8 hours per day. The center is short of manpower and is in regular need of volunteers to provide assistance. Volunteers help in following activities: -
I. Foster respect and compassion for all animals.
II. Improve the living conditions and welfare of animals in captivity.
III. Educate people on lifestyle choices which do not involve the abuse of animals and which are environment-friendly.
Volunteer with Disabled People: – Volunteers will work in Cheshire Home which was founded in 1957. The Home aims to provide a “home” in the truest practicable sense for the care, rehabilitation, encouragement, stimulation and happiness of its residents and clients, all of whom are seriously disabled adults of both sexes and various races and creeds, and to give them the chance to live as normal lives as possible. Volunteers will work from 10am to 4.30pm from Monday to Friday. You will be supervised by the volunteer coordinator in the Home.
