About the program

Volunteer with Children in India

We get over 150 volunteers every year to come and work in the volunteer children program in Delhi. There are about 100 million street children in India who do not attend any school and spend most of their time on the streets. In Delhi, the capital city, it is estimated that there are close to 1, 75,000 street children of which 7-10 % are runaways. Volunteers can bring smile on the faces of these disadvantaged children by helping to create an environment conducive for their holistic development in order to enable them become a part of mainstream society.

Volunteer Tasks

Volunteers work at different childcare center in and around New Delhi. They can assist in providing love, care, basic literacy, recreation and most importantly spend time and shower affection on them. It can make a world of difference to their lives. The program consists of taking informal education classes with the children, playing games with the children and introducing them to different new activities.Volunteers work for 5-6 hrs in a day for 5 days in a week. The need for improvisation & creativity in teaching methods is paramount and can challenge the most experienced volunteer, but the rewards are amazing.

Our volunteers can bring along pens, pencils, books and other teaching material which will help them with teaching.

You can expect the best experience with Volunteering India as we have been working with international volunteers since 2006. As a volunteer you would be living and working in south Delhi. Our accommodations and projects are located in safe areas and we have coordinators available on site.
