Role of Volunteer
As a volunteer, you will teach English and other subjects such as geography, history, music, computer skills and arts & crafts. You also provide free time activities: playing music, singing songs, drawing pictures and a multitude of other creative-based entertainment options. In many cases, volunteers help to prepare food, keep the premises and the children clean and develop creative extracurricular activities. Working in an orphanage is a positive, life-changing experience.
- Teach English (3-4 hours a day) in orphanage or school that orphans attend
- Help kids to dress and safely reach school
- Personal hygiene: help with brushing teeth, showering and general cleanliness
- Free time: organize games, drawing, singing, dancing and other creative educational and extra- curricular activities
- Chaperone educational tours
- Academics: help with homework and ensure academic progress
- Child care services for orphans who do not attend school
- Help with food distribution, kitchen and kitchen garden cultivation
- Support orphanage operational or administrative tasks
No specific qualifications are required to volunteer in our orphanage project, but your understanding of Indian culture and language can be strengthened by enrolling in our one-week Language & Cultural Immersion program. Volunteers should have love for children, empathy for their unfortunate circumstances and willingness to share their passion with them.
