The volunteer teaching program is run in government primary schools in rural areas of India. The volunteers will work in the schools and organize various enjoyable and creative activities for the children to sharpen their talents and increase their knowledge.
The volunteers will assist in a wide variety of
chosen subjects and activities, including English,
Mathematics, Arts and Sports. Since volunteer activities
are organized in Government Schools where acute shortage
of teachers exists, the volunteers are therefore
expected to focus mainly on the syllabus being taught in
the Schools. The volunteers work continuously to explore
the hidden talents in the children and to promote them.
The volunteers might find that they learn as much as
from them as the children will learn from the
Age Limit: 16 Years +
Length of stay: 01 - 52 weeks

to their current syllabus. In addition you can teach
Alphabets, Counting, Days of weeks, Months of year,
Manners, Writing practice etc.
On working days, volunteers get up and make their own
breakfast before heading out to their volunteer sites.
Our staff provides transportation to and from the
volunteer site of your choice. At the volunteer site,
you will spend approximately four hours. Lunch is
included and will be served at 1pm upon return to the
volunteer house. Open afternoons provide volunteers the
opportunity to explore Jaipur and learn about the local
culture and customs. Evening meals provide another
exciting chance to enjoy authentic food provided by our
staff cooks. The food is delicious and healthy and takes
full advantage of local cooking traditions. The weekends
are free time, where you can choose to relax or explore
the local area. Volunteers often travel to other parts
of the country on the weekends. If you don't know where
to go don't worry; ask the staff, they are always happy
to make recommendations.
