Prosper through Empowerment (H.O.P.E.)
H.O.P.E. provides educational and emotional support for children in
China's orphanages. The international non-profit organization
strengthens the bonds between orphanage staff and children. H.O.P.E.
empowers children who may not find their "forever homes," those that
will grow up in, and grow out of, the orphanage, as well as improve the
chances of adoption for the other children. H.O.P.E. is actively
looking for students with an interest in making a difference in the
lives of these forgotten orphans. Visit www.volunteerforhope.org to
read about past volunteers' experiences.
Founded by Janet Fink, a Duke University alum, Superkids sends
therapists, physicians and volunteers worldwide to work with orphans.
Their therapists and volunteers specialize in pediatric physical,
occupational, speech, and play therapy. Their main purpose is to train
caregivers to incorporate easy and fun therapy exercises into the daily
orphanage routine. With the use of specialized therapy toys, they teach
caregivers how to strengthen children's gross and fine motor muscles,
improve their sensory integration, and build self-esteem.
