Get to know India in a different way
Women are taught basic literacy skills. They are educated on various topics such as reproductive health, family life education, family planning. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups
50+
In this programme we work with women living in slums and from below poverty line families on the outskirts of Jaipur.

Every day girls and women come to our centre and here we teach them formal and informal education, provide vocational training, etc.

In terms of education, we teach them basic English (Spanish, French, etc.), mathematics, Hindi and computer classes. English has become a language of global communication that unites many parts of the world. It is very important that these women see themselves and others as being able to participate in that global conversation.

We offer training in many of the areas in which these women are likely to find work. We organise classes in sewing, henna drawing and cooking for these girls and women, so that with the help of these skills they can even start their own business so that in the near future they are not dependent on their husbands and men.

We also provide timely counselling service and create a friendly environment for women and girls to feel in a safe place to share their problems and talk freely about any issue.

In our women's empowerment programme we also offer the opportunity to teach girls and boys between the ages of 3 and 16. In this programme, participants have the wonderful opportunity to work with women and children in one programme. 

That is why we mix the programme: most of the children who come to our centre are the children of the women who also come here and it is better for the little ones to be with them. The children who live in the slums cannot go to school because their families are very poor and there is no awareness about children's education. 

Our main motive for this programme is: to get equal education opportunities, equal employment opportunities without gender bias and a safe and comfortable working environment.  

Typical day

A normal day of volunteering starts around 10:30 a.m. and ends around 4 p.m.
Upon arrival, the volunteer is informed about the activities in which he/she will participate and what activities he/she has to organise.
 The afternoons are usually free to get to know the country.

Free-time activities

MUMBAI OR BOMBAY 
India's financial capital and one of the world's largest megalopolises. The sheer size and the explosion of life in its streets justify a visit. In this beautiful city you can see the meeting of East and West like nowhere else.
 
BHANDARDARA 
This is a magical enclave, surrounded by spectacular mountains on the shores of the man-made lake created by the British when they built the Wilson Dam.
