Q: How do get a volunteer position at a Chinese orphanage?

I've met a few people who have volunteered at orphanages but never see volunteer opportunities like this advertised anywhere. What's the best way of finding and getting such positions?

Sometimes students from this college go to volunteer for a few hours. When I heard about it, I went with them. They played some games with the children, and some of the children put on a dance performance. We brought lots of snacks for them, and if they won a game they got a prize. All of them had some kind of disability, which is why the parents abandoned them, I would think. One of the cutest little girls was there, all that was wrong with her was that she couldn't move her legs. I know that doesn't sound like a big deal, but because she lives in China, there are very few ramps and many buildings don't have elevators. It's unfortunate that these children don't have a home, but at least we could give them a few hours of fun.

You have not met anyone who has volunteered at any orphanage.

Oh no....how badly do you want to break your heart? The things you'll see in a Chinese orphanage will not please you. I think you're braver than me for wanting to do that.

Very good Chinese welders have been invited to work in Australia and they are now Australians http://www.chinasmack.com/2013/stories/chinese-welders-live-the-good-life-in-australia-reactions.htmlIf Australia is your thing, you can get a good idea of what kind of skills are in demandhttp://www.immi.gov.au/Work/Pages/skilled-occupations-lists/skilled-occupations-lists.aspx The idea is : why someone would employ somebody from the other side of the planet, if there is already a pool of locals with the same skillset, but immediately available without visa hassles to go through ? The idea of immigration is to bring lawful tax payers, not people who are likely to be jobless ;) -- DrMonkey
