The street children program appears well organized and smoothly run. It was completely adverse to what I expected but I have a wild and eccentric imagination. I had thought it would literally be unorganized with kids of and of the street, the school, uniform and equipment, books etc was refreshing and I do get an impression that this will make an large difference to these kids lives.

It’s really nice to see how the children make progress in just a short time and that’s really rewarding. I got many experience during my stay in India and I’ve learned a lot of the things I’ve lived during the program."

Volunteer Program Story

Anne Schoenemann

I had an amazing time with the kids in the street kid’s project and I would do it again immediately, I became truly attached to them and would love to take them with me but happily they have their families and don’t need to be adopted. It was a great experience and an amazing time teaching the kids and gets to know them better everyday, I’m going to miss them very much on my last day it was breaking my heart to say goodbye to them.

I liked the fact that we had free times and volunteer were able to explore Jaipur. I enjoyed experiencing the culture and having the other volunteers around. At the school I was little apprehensive about teaching, as I haven’t really done this before.
