Volunteer in childcare in India

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.

Location: Jaipur

Volunteering schedule: Monday to Friday, 5 hours per day.

Commitment: 1 week – 24 weeks.
