Comments from
UPA

Working with vulnerable children and young adults may call for a volunteer’s
readiness to experience irritating and challenging situations. However, a volunteer
shall be required to carry a very open heart that can accommodate these
situations.
You should be highly motivated to create own tasks / activities at times and for
any queries endeavor to have a discussion with the directors.

Communication Communication with AHCM children and staff is easy, as most have attained a
formal education. However, In case of children who are unable to speak good
English, translation is always available.

Past Volunteers Japan, Finland, South Korea, United Kingdom, U.S.A., Philippines and Germany.

Participants are required to pay a participation fee of Euro 500 (five hundred Euros) on arrival
for a period of 1- 3months and 80 Euros (eighty Euros) in advance for each additional month/s.
