In Quito, a lot of children do not have a permanent place to stay, they live on the streets, together with their families, and are often addicted to glue, the cheapest drug they can afford. Sinsoluka - which means ‘without glue - is a non-profit organization that aims to help these children and their families who live or have lived on the streets of Quito. The main objective is to give these people hope for their future, supporting them by providing a place to eat, a change of clothes, and a shower. Younger children are encouraged to go to school and in the afternoon, volunteers help them with their homework and organize games and fun activities.
If you are patient and like working with kids, this is your chance to break the circle and make a huge difference in these childrens’ life.
Today the center helps over 250 children and their families, although they do not all come to the center at the same time. In the morning around 30 children between the ages of 10 till 15 come to Sinsoluka and in the afternoon another 70 children between the ages 4 till 12 come to the center. All children receive a nutritious lunch at the center, followed by teeth brushing. Many of these children have had a bad start to life such as being born to drug addicted parents, living on the streets, subjected to violence, abuse or neglect, made to work selling sweets in the street etc. The aim is to stress the importance of education and good hygiene as a way of breaking the circle and ensuring that these children do not fall for the same way of life and temptations that their parents did before them. With the help of funding and sponsors, the project pays to send the children to school and help out with any costs that the family may not be able to cover like school uniforms, books, materials etc.

The goal is not only to help the children but also their parents. Over the years it has helped a lot of families get off the streets, find somewhere to live and when possible, a job. And most importantly the project is now helping the second generation of children whose parents, like them were helped by the project but may still be living in very unstable situations.

One of the main problems facing those who have left behind their addictions and life on the street is finding employment, mostly due to their lack of education and skills. Therefore, the project has created a carpentry workshop as well as a bakery that young people and adults can come to for training and various courses. This way they have a better shot at getting a job in the future.

Volunteer at a Centre for Street Children

Volunteer Activities

The volunteers work in the center with the children who either go to school in the morning or in the afternoon. The volunteers are mainly assistants and educators; apart from giving the children many hugs and much attention, these are some of the tasks

- Help children with their homework (children are often behind in school and do not have a quiet space to do their homework, or have parents who are not capable of helping them at home so volunteers are a great help in this area).
- Help in the kitchen, especially during lunch time which can be very chaotic and busy. The staff need help assisting the youngest children and make sure they clean up after themselves.
- Help in the carpentry workshop (when necessary)
- School visits (the center needs to keep a check on the children enrolled at school and regularly visit the local schools to ask about a certain child’s attendance, grades, ability etc.)
- Prepare educational activities
- Prepare recreational activities to be carried out when the children finish their homework or during their breaks
- Assist in hygiene education, such as hand washing and brushing teeth
- Supervise and assist children when they are allowed to use the computer room for their homework

The more hard work you put into the project the more reward you get! Show initiative, work independently and don’t be afraid of working hard. They need all the help you can give them.

What Makes a Good Volunteer?

Volunteers need to be flexible and keep an open mind concerning their placements as situations can arise beyond our control which could require you to be placed at a different project than the one you have initially chosen. We will of course always do our utmost to fulfill your initial wishes but do remember that where you are going is quite different from where you are coming and as such one should be prepared for things not always going according to plan.

Volunteering and intercultural travel share a common trait: the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. This program is designed for proactive individuals and groups that are prepared to adapt to the local environment and its current needs. Naturally, the scheduling and activities of our program are subject to change. Alterations in activities are mainly due to changes in local conditions, which we believe is part of what makes overseas programs the interesting adventure and incredible learning experience that they are.

How Long Should I Volunteer?

Our projects range from 1 week up to approx. 30 weeks. Projects have a specified minimum stay, then it’s up to you how long you can commit. In our experience the longer you stay the more you will gain, as your understanding of the project broadens and you take on more responsibilities. Every volunteer will be given a certificate of appreciation at the end of their stay as a symbol of volunteering stay.

Work Schedule|
You working week is Monday to Friday. You can work from 09:00 until 16:30. Discuss with your volunteer coordinator and the staff if you will work full days or half days and what the possibilities are. You will have your weekends free to explore Quito and the surrounding areas.|

Recommendations|
This is a tough project so please be patient, your volunteer work is extremely valuable and helps to keep the project running. You will learn a lot and at times you may get frustrated with the way things work in Ecuador. Organization and the pace at which things run may be very different to what you are used to but please take into account that these are cultural differences that you should respect. Although it is not necessary, it is highly appreciated if you bring donations with you like children’s clothes, shoes. And also educational or recreational play material would always be welcome.|

Boende

You can choose between a private room at homestay accommodation or shared (twin or triple room) accommodation at our volunteer house.

Homestay
Staying with a host family is a great way to put your Spanish into practice in daily conversation and also to experience the everyday life of a middle class Ecuadorian family. You will be provided with your own room, receive three meals a day on weekdays and one laundry load a week.

Volunteer House
The volunteer house is located in the lively neighbourhood La Mariscal. Surrounded by restaurants and bars, there is enough to do in the area to not get bored! But our house is comfortable as well: a spacious living room with a TV, DVD and a comfy sofa, a big table to eat with all your housemates and a great kitchen that is fully equipped for you to cook your meals.

Lokal transport

This project is available with or without an arrival transfer from Quito Airport to your accommodation. Arrival transfer is included with the Intro Week, if you choose that option.

How to Get to the Project:
On your first day a coordinator will accompany you to the project. The project is located in the historic centre of Quito and it takes 30 mins by bus to get there from the volunteer house. The bus costs USD 0.25.

Måltider

3 meals a day during weekdays are included if you choose the homestay option, otherwise self-catering.

Observera att

Please don’t give money directly to co-workers, children or their family, but talk to our volunteer coordinator about how to most wisely invest it in the project.
