India is home to the world’s largest population of children for whom the street, in the widest sense of the word, is both their home and source of livelihood.

Street children in Dharamsala live in a community of around 1000 tent dwellers located at the edge of town where families have relocated from Rajasthan state in the west of India looking for work opportunities. The children rely on fragile strategies for survival with inadequate adult supervision and limited opportunities for education and play. The ‘rag children’ as they are locally known are at risk of exploitation and live hand to mouth each day collecting plastics and metals to sell on for a meagre income.

Volunteers make daily visits to the community and assist in providing nutritious meals to a few households at a time and provide basic English language classes to a group of children. You will help the children reclaim their childhood by spending some time playing educational and recreational games; engage in basic English conversation; develop basic learning activities using picture books and storytelling; but most of all show the children you care and bring a smile back to their faces. Currently this work is not offered as a stand-alone project and volunteers will also assist in other areas.

Tagesablauf

Volunteers typically work from Monday to Friday for a total of four to five hours per day, on two or three different placements.Volunteers work two hours in the morning at one placement and two hours after lunch at another placement. You will have time for taking breaks in between for lunch, chai and lesson preparation at the iSpiice volunteer house.

Unterkunft

We provide accommodation at the iSpiice volunteer house, with separate male and female bedrooms and bathrooms. The house is comfortable and the location is beautiful with access to all local amenities. Accommodation is very communal – food is eaten together and bathrooms and living spaces are shared. The number of people you will share with depends entirely on the number of volunteers we have in the house, but the maximum number of people in a room is 4. And in case you were wondering we have western toilets and hot water.

As with most Indian homes, there is no washing machine at the iSpiice house. You will have to get used to the Indian way of washing your clothes by hand and drying.
