Turn your dreams into realities

We get it. Your wanderlust and love for humanity are spilling over. You just need a place where you can put those qualities to use and turn your dreams into reality.

OSSO is the pathway to creating the life you've always dreamed of. 

With Orphanage Support Services Organization, you'll volunteer to experience life, love children, and seek adventure. You will take care of, play with, teach, and feed orphans in need. You will explore different cultures, hike through rainforests, meet new animal friends, and discover what you're made of. 

You will come home changed for good. You will never be the same. And you will be forever inspired to find ways to continue helping those in need and satisfying your love for travel.

Become an OSSO volunteer. Hold a hand, change a life.
