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?

Simply go to an orphanage see if they have positions available and they put you to work. Of course there will be a background check and then you have to qualify first. Meaning good record, no troubles with the law, probably have to take a volunteer course and then you will be set!heart

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.

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.

A:Mars One is at best a pipe dream, at worst a scam. The team behind Mars One showed more than once a very poor understanding of the challenge they want to take. Landing a car-sized buggy was already a major achievement (check for the landing procedure of the Curiosity probe), at the edge of what can be done today. It took a few billions dollars to achieve. They have no answers for all the engineering challenges to address. Four Chinese as Mars One candidate... I would bet on the Chinese Space Program, they are far more competent (it's mostly a PLA-only program). Just the cost to put in Earth low orbit all the fuel and supplies is mind-blowing, nevermind landing all that on Mars. -- DrMonkey
