Volunteering

When we started, we started with 21 volunteers caring for 52 children.

However, they do not receive any regular salary or stipend. All of them work passionately serving the needs of the children and adolescents with all their strength and resources.

The more volunteers there are, the more programmes we can run and the better we can serve the children and their very individual needs. Teaching them dance routines, helping them with their schoolwork and homework, preparing meals, or just engaging them in any sports or games - there is a huge variety of things and actitivities you can get involved in at HCH.

We want every child to grow up in an environment of safety where it can make its experiences and develop. Maybe, you have your own ideas and talents you can offer to HCH Simply talk to us and we will find a way to get you involved.
