VOLUNTEER HEALTH CARE PROGRAMS
Unfortunately, the public health care system in Honduras is one of the worst in Latin America. There are very few good hospitals, and most middle class families are unable to afford them. Therefore, able volunteers in our Volunteer Honduras Health Project assist in local public clinics which are often poorly-equipped.
If you volunteer for this project, you will support local doctors and nurses in their work. You may also work in different capacities from observing to providing assistance in small surgery, based on your skills and experience. Also depending on your skill level, you may help care for patients, check blood pressure, distribute food, and work in the pharmacy or with a gynecologist. There is always work for volunteers in the public clinics in La Ceiba and surrounding areas.
VOLUNTEER PRIMARY SCHOOL FOR THE DISABLE
Special education for deaf and mute, mentally retired and learning problem children is a complex field for volunteers and requires special talents and interests. However, this Volunteer Honduras Project allows you to play a crucial role in the lives of deaf and mute children. Your tasks in this project may include helping to improve or develop the communication level of the children. You will primarily adopt communication techniques such as auditory-verbal, bilingual-bi cultural, cued speech, oral method, acoustic method, Rochester method, speech reading (lip-reading), manual sign languages (PSE, ASL, Signed English, Signing Exact English), sign supported speech (simultaneous communication), and total communication. All volunteers in this field must use sign language to provide the primary students an opportunity to learn it and to help them feel more confident with themselves and their ability to communicate with others. In addition, you will also be involved in other curricular and extra-curricular activities such as games, painting, and dancing. Physical Therapists always Needed!!!
VOLUNTEER TEACHING ENGLISH PROGRAM
La Ceiba is a picturesque town located on the northern coast of the Caribbean Sea. As Honduras develops its tourism industry, recent focuses have been on La Ceiba—called “The Capital of Tourism” because of its strategic location. La Ceiba is a destination for many English-speaking tourists. For these Honduran students to become part of this growing industry, they should be proficient in English. Our volunteer program in Honduras offers opportunities for international volunteers to teach English to children and young people attending primary and secondary schools in La Ceiba and its surrounding areas. These areas are very poor, and the schools lack native English-speaking volunteers. In this program, volunteers will help children learn the correct use of English words and master English grammar. A typical class averages about 20 students.
