Orphanage Volunteer 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.

I learned a lot about India, about people, and children and about myself. I’ve seen some amazing things happening with the children in the orphanage e.g. magic show, first step, big changes in personality. The children are very sweet and resilient. I hope they grow up to have an independent and wonderful life! They deserve much love and attention.

This was my second time volunteering in Jaipur, India. Yet again it was an amazing experience! I was volunteering in the orphanage; everyday was fantastic, the children are utterly amazing in their own right and the relationship that you can build with both the children and the staff who work there is something really special.

I have enjoyed participating in the orphanage program. I love working with children and I really had a good time talking care of them, playing with them…I think these children have a great time when volunteer visit them, that’s why I think this program is really necessary for them, because this way they disconnect and “break the routine.
