Why it is important

Delhi, alone, is said to have more than 0.2 million children living on streets, railway tracks, traffic signals, and other roadside areas. Most of these children are runaways from home, due to physical abuse and poverty. 

Many are orphans, who have no relatives to live with, and are forced by misfortune to live such a life. These children can be seen scavenging the rubbish heap for a meal, sleeping between the tracks, often beaten and sexually abused, falling prey to drug peddlers and child traffickers. 

The project

Through extensive volunteer work in the street children program in India - Delhi this situation can be tried to be dealt with. Volunteers work at the various contact points or shelter homes, being run by various organizations, which serve as day care centers for these street children. 

Volunteer work

The street children volunteer program in India requires a high amount of dedication and personal involvement from the volunteers. A generic list of tasks to be done by the participants under this program includes work, such as; 

  • Taking informal education classes for the children
  • Playing recreational and fun games with the children, while introducing them to different and new activities.
  • Help make them aware and imbibe some good habits in the children; such as, cleanliness, hygiene and greetings.  
  • On some of the days, volunteers can, also, plan a trip with the children to a museum or zoo in Delhi. Such educational trips are very useful for the children where they love spending time and playing with the volunteers.
  • Volunteers can assist in providing love, care, basic literacy, recreation and most importantly spend time and shower affection on them.

Tagesablauf

Volunteers joining the street children program in India are required to follow a basic routine on a daily basis. This covers everything from meals to volunteer work and back. 

It must be noted that every placement functions at a different pace and on separate time-lines making the schedule slightly differ at times. A generic daily schedule for volunteers is as follows;

  • Sunday : Arrival in Delhi
  • Monday : Orientation + neighborhood familiarization tour. Orientation session will be conducted by the local coordinator, covering topic areas; such as safety, culture, language, places to visit, behaviour, food, and other suggestion over things to do in Delhi. Those who chose the Language and Orientation Week will carry on with the same for the entire, rest of the volunteers will begin their volunteer work from Tuesday.
  • Tue to Fri : Volunteer work
  • Breakfast - 08:30 am onwards
  • Working hours at the placement - 10:00 am (volunteers leave the accommodation by 09:30 am) to 04:00 pm
  • Lunch - anywhere between 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm (volunteers have to manage lunch on their own expense)
  • Dinner - 06:00 pm onwards
The same volunteer work schedule continues from the second week onwards
