Orphanage child care program in India

voluntariado cuido de niños en orfanato en la India

An extraordinary country that will never cease to surprise you!

Visiting India requires of your time, a lot of information and a desire to have a great adventure. India can provokeyou a cultural shock that few countries generate; it is unique!

Nevertheless, not everything is beautiful, as we would like. Problems of poverty, inequality and child labor mean that many children do not have the opportunity to have access to education, mainly children, whom due to situations of abandonment, or because they have lost their families and in some cases children rescued from child labor. These realities distance our children from the joys of their childhood and make them to need a lot of affection, love, attention and essentially a good education.

Many of the children who come to the orphanage, seek assistance and support from all those who collaborate in the center, including volunteers. We serve children from zero to 18 years old. Important ages for the development of their skills and knowledge.

 

TASKS TO DO

  • The volunteer’s collaboration will focus on the following activities:
  • Support in the teaching of subjects such as: mathematics and English.
  • Organization of didactic and educational games.
  • Collaboration in dance, singing and drawing spaces.
  • Support in awareness programs on health and hygiene.
  • Help the staff of the orphanage in daily tasks in duties such as cooking, cleaning and distribution of food.

 

As a volunteer, you must be prepared for difficult situations. You will usually work in a place where you must be a person prepared to listen to painful stories. You must also be able to adapt and be flexible because you work with children in rural places. May this not discourage you; the children receive you and thank you with the best of their smiles for the support and time you share with them.

 

SCHEDULE AND WORK PLACE

The orphanage works from Monday to Friday, 4 hours a day.  Therefore, you will be collaborating between 20 to 35 hours a week.

The orphanage is open all year.

Volunteers are housed in houses intended for volunteers.  The houses are located in several areas of the city center of Jaipur. Some houses are farther out, approximately 30 minutes from down town.

The house has Wi-Fi connection, which you can access. It also has kitchen spaces, living room, dining room and a small terrace. You will share rooms with other volunteers of the same gender. (Approximately four volunteers per room).
