Volunteer In India for Orphanage Work Program

The orphanage program offers volunteers the opportunity to give love, care, affection and attention to the kids who are in need. This volunteer opportunity is full of life and is often viewed as life-changing experience.

The volunteers assist the orphanage staff with the daily routines for the children who range from 1-6 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.
