Typical Duration of Program
There are millions of street children and working children in India. Many have suffered neglect and abuse at the hands of family members or are addicted to sniffing glue or other narcotics or are sold into slavery.
Use your skills and enthusiasm to contribute to the education and support of neglected and outcast kids. At the same time, discover this ancient and fascinating city, and its beautiful surrounding countryside where you will find captivating wildlife, remote villages that uphold traditional artisanal lifestyles and some of the most arresting scenery in the world. Travel to India for a unique volunteering experience that will provide lifelong memories whilst totally changing your world perspective!
WHAT WILL I BE DOING?
As part of your volunteer experience, you will work with neglected or outcast children at a school or shelter. Your activities could involve helping with study and education, making music and art together, playing games and sports or just bringing love, care and affection into the blighted lives of these deserving children. We invite you to use your creativity and imagination whatever you are interested in.
Schedules are not strictly structured and there is plenty of room for you to implement your own ideas. Volunteers are expected to take responsibility for their own project within their placement, either continuing a previous volunteer's work or starting something new and exciting. You will discover the enormity of the difficulties these marginalised children have experienced and have the opportunity to make a great difference.
