What volunteer opportunities are available locally?

There are plenty of options as there seem to be many impoverished people here and I wish I had gotten involved. There is an orphanage the Embassy helps out with, a similar project to Habitat for Humanity when the floods come, and the poor are always in need of donations of food, water, and money. - Jun 2019

Difficult. I'm certain that there are, but they're hard to find. Advertising (unless for products) is rare here. - Aug 2018

There is no shortage of volunteering opportunities, from maternal health, orphanages, and Techo (like habitat for humanity). - Jun 2018

The Facebook page "Asuncion Assistance Group" posts volunteer opportunities and information about groups looking for help. There is plenty that you can do but you might need to work hard to find opportunities. There are a few orphanages that look for volunteers as well. - May 2016

There are plenty. Habitat for Humanity is here. There are also many churches you can collaborate with on volunteer work. I know of at least one person who volunteers with abandoned, disabled children. There are MANY missionaries here, and there are many Peace Corps Volunteers, plus former Peace Corps Volunteers. There's a lot of poverty and lack of education in Paraguay, so the opportunities are many and varied. - Sep 2015
