Whole Year


The volunteers should be 16 years and above of age. The volunteers from any qualification are welcomed to join Crawl Society. Experience not required. But we also welcome professionals with any background. As our projects are mainly highlighted on street and slum kids and women so the volunteers must adopt the soft kind hearted mentality to work with these poor street & slum kids and women. They must be willing to adapt to totally different cultures and different people. Volunteers will need to be flexible and expect different situations, though the local people will help them at every aspect whenever they will need.
