Join our women empowerment program for the women who lives in slums & Experience our colourful Indian culture and teach girls and women a range of different subjects. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Families
Groups
50+

In this program we work with women who live in slum area and comes from Below Poverty line families outskirts of Jaipur,in the desert state of Rajasthan. With the overall aim to educate and provide training for women who live in slums, and those who come from BPL (Below Poverty Line) families.  Every day girls and women come to our center and here we teach them formal and informal education provide them vocational training etc..

 In terms of education here we teach them basic English reading and writing language classes(Spanish, French, etc)  Mathematics, Hindi and Computer  are offered. English has become a global communication language, building a bridge between many areas of the world. It is so important for these women to see themselves and others as being able to take part in such global conversation.

We provide training in many of the areas that these women will likely find work. We organize stitching, drawing henna and cooking classes for these girls and women so with the help of these skills even start their own business so in near future they are not depend on their husband or Men.

We are also provide time timely a counselling service and established a friendly atmosphere for women and girls so they feel a safe place to share their issues and talk freely about anything.

In our women empowerment program we also offer you the chance to teach young girls & boys at the age from 3 to 15 years old. In This program you get a wonderful opportunity for participants to work with both women & children in one program. We works to break the cycle of poverty that diminishes these girls and children’s life chances. Without a good education, their economic prospects will be limited as those of their parents, sentencing them and their future children to a similar life of hardship. So we mix the program is that most of the children that come to our center are the children of the women who also come here and it is better for the young ones to be with them. Children who live in slum areas are not able to go to school because of their families are very poor and also there is no awareness in regard to education for children. 

At the project volunteers will help us in various ways such as they can teach the women and girls English, maths and computing, in a friendly and supportive atmosphere, and also assisting in their moral development how they can behave they also do women health and hygiene lessons art and craft, and using their skills to develop new ideas so in near future with the help of this girls and women can get some work or even they start their own small business etc. They can prepare some educational games and sports activity too for these girls overall development.
