A children’s home in Argentina is similar to the foster care system in the United
States. Children who are removed from the care of their parents live in these
homes temporarily. This home houses boys and girls from ages 2 to 15.  The children are at school for the first half of the day and then they come home and participate in day-to-day activities. The home expects committed volunteers as the children need stable influences in their lives.

The team at AFS Argentina are looking forward to discussing the programmes with you and can be called or Whatsapp’d on +54 911 6858 9131 between 12pm and 8pm.

Alternatively apply now and we’ll call you back.
