Über das Programm

Do you like to help SMILE NGO to bring a smile to the most neglected children living in kolkata ,India?

The project

This project is all about bringing smile to all underprivileged refugee kids. Providing informal basic education like english teaching ,hygiene, basics, organising entertainment program, food distribution for these children under SMILE Happy Home Project (A Non Formal School  for destitute refugee children)  would be the main target of the volunteers. SMILE Society ( Situational Management & Inter Learning Establishment Society) is a registered Non profit working for these underprivileged communities around the state of West Bengal since 2003.

Most important target of the project is to bring smile among these children. Volunteer would use different way of informal education technique to present a unique and attractive way of education programs for these kids. Most of these kids speaks local Bengali /Hindi language but they are very smart and intelligent.so teaching them with the support of local coordinator would not be so difficult, just little bit of patience and involvement can solve this problem easily. 

Volunteer work

All volunteers would go through orientation on arrival and  local language session during this period . There would also be a workshop every evening when volunteers would prepare the next day lesson plan of action. Volunteers would also help local coordinator in other activities like giving  food distribution, organising drama, story telling and entertainment games for the children. Whole camp would be run under the supervision of very experienced local project coordinator. Saturday and Sunday would be free days when volunteers can take rest or tour around the city or near by places. 

More over if anyone get a chance to live with the local host family then that brings extra bonus to any traveller. It helps to learn the culture, tradition, language while staying within the normal people of the society. Living on any hotel can never give any traveller such wide scope to know the society and communities as a whole. SMILE society always tries to give international volunteers a big scope to know about the local communities and understand the family environment. Smile Society (ngo) had started their activities since 2003 ! 

Volunteer would be given responsibility of a small group 2-4 children at a time and this number would be flexible so as the children. We also hope volunteer would help the children to speak English and prepare a Lession plan for individual kids. Education level varies a lot. Normally there is no need of supplies to bring for the class but if anyone wish to bring any education supplies for children is fine. 

The location:

Madhyamgram (8 km from Kolkata Airport). It is a suburbs with all facilities, transportation, shopping places. A peaceful place than centre of the city.
