Orphanages programme in North India

Join our volunteers in India for a life-changing experience !

Thousands of Indian children live in orphanages, and local organizations lack resources and personnel. Most of these children come from families who are living in extreme poverty and life in the orphanage, although very basic, can be much better than they have known before.

As they have not got the opportunity to enrol their children in nearby schools, many orphanages have organized "parallel" schools, where volunteers can make a difference by teaching.

The orphanages are located in Delhi and Jaipur. Most volunteers teach English, but tasks can vary according to each orphanage and the skills and interests of our people.

You can also teach art, music, dance, sports and other recreational activities. You may also be asked to participate occasionally in the day to day life in the orphanage helping with meals, toilet training children, maintenance of premises or other tasks.

Those with practical skills can also help maintain the buildings and gardens. Any improvement in the lives of children is welcome and helps provide a framework for making their lives more enjoyable.

In Jaipur, a small school is part of the orphanage. The presence of our volunteers gives children a window on the world and the prospect of a better future.

 Even without special skills you can bring to the children what they need most: attention and affection.

Example of tasks:

  • Teaching English
  • Helping with toilet training
  • Teaching the basic rules of hygiene
  • Playing with and paying attention to children
  • Teaching drawing or painting
  • Teaching music and singing
  • Helping with homework
  • Helping with administrative tasks.

During the day, most older orphans go to school. Meanwhile, you could help the staff with the daily tasks, take care of the younger children or help teachers during class.
