Project options at glance in India

+ Volunteer in childcare

Volunteer with children from low-income communities and support working parents by volunteering in a daycare. Children who end up in the project are usually from homes that cannot afford education, proper nutrition, and a safe environment; volunteers are a great help to the staff who are usually overwhelmed by the number of children that they have to tend to. Children in the project range from 03-12 years of age.

+ Volunteer in education

Teach in India in a small school where you can transfer what you know best. Volunteers can teach English, math, science, computer literacy, and more. Also, work is available supporting the teachers by creating new materials, managing schedules, and reviewing homework. Volunteers are encouraged to pass on special skills or expertise that they might have like knowledge in arts, music, certain sports, or other relevant subjects.

+ Construction

For volunteers who love working with their hands, the construction program in India is perfect while helping keep in good shape schools, community centers, hospitals, and other structures that are of benefit to the community.

+ Women Empowerment

Volunteer in women empowerment and help give the right educational tools to women in vulnerable situations. Work involves education in life skills, income-generating projects, vocational training, counseling, and support. Seminars are organized to raise voices against domestic violence, eve-teasing & harassment.

+ Special Education and care

Volunteer with children who are mentally and physically handicapped in a variety of areas like education, therapy, and care. Vocational training is also available for volunteers that are handy in certain areas. Volunteers are of great help by teaching children how to do day-to-day tasks like cooking, using household appliances, etc. This prepares them to transition into adulthood later on in life.

+ Medical internships in India

The medical program in India works inside nursing centers, hospitals, and dispensaries that provide free or very accessible healthcare in low-income areas of India. Interns going into this program can also work in the field in free check-up camps set up in slums, community centers, schools, and daycares.
