The orphanage program offers volunteers the opportunity to interact and care for the neediest children in our local government orphanage. This program is very dynamic and is often viewed as life changing in both the impact you will have on the children and more importantly the impact the children will have on you. Since this is a government run orphanage, volunteers assist the employed orphanage staff with the daily routines for the children who range from 0-6 years old (both girls and boys). The children vary in all different needs, development, and abilities based on their individual backgrounds. Volunteers participate in dressing, feeding, playing, caring, and loving the orphanage children. Our volunteers are able to make a profound difference in orphan's lives by providing them with affection and love that may not otherwise receive or experience.

Our volunteer for women empowerment program offers a unique experience for volunteering to positively affect the lives of young women and girls in the rural areas of India. The volunteers spend the afternoons teaching these young women communication skills, basic skills for their future career or educational paths, computer skills, along with many other encouraging lessons. These positive interactions help build up the confidence in these young women. Through this program, we strive to offer a changing outlook on life for growing girls in a society that is lacking the understanding of the equal importance of a girl's value in life. While empowering these girls, volunteers will find empowerment and purpose in their own lives as well.
