Join our women empowerment program for the women who live in rural areas, slums and backward villages in Jaipur, India. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 16+

The Program 

This program has been created with the aim to educate and provide training for women who live in rural areas, slums, villages and those who come from BPL (Below Poverty Line) families. Every day women and young girls come to our center for a basic education. Many of the women who visit our center are unable to read or write, as educating women is just not a priority in so many of the impoverished areas of India.

Basic classes in spoken and written English and mathematics 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.

Perhaps most practical is that we provide training in many of the areas that these women will likely find work. Classes in stitching work, drawing and henna paint provide these women with the skills to access available work or even start their own business.

An individual and group counselling service has also been established to give these women a safe place to share their issues and talk freely about anything.

Our women empowerment program also offer you the chance to teach young girls & boys at the age from 5 to 12 years old. This program makes wonderful opportunity for participants to work with both women & children in one program. The reason to 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 their mothers. Children which live in rural areas are not able to go to school because their families are very poor and also there is no awareness in regard to education for children. 

Work for Volunteers

You can support Indian women in many ways, depending on your skills and interests and the needs of the local community.

Volunteers in this program are involved in activities like:

  • helping our center with skills development & training course
  • teach basic English & maths to women
  • education (literacy) awareness work
  • female health awareness program
  • income generative skills training
  • personality development
  • awareness raising activities

We invite people from all over the world to come and be a part of our women empowerment program. Come with expertise and help women of India to learn or come with no expertise and learn together. Your small effort can make a big difference in the life of many Indian women. We do however request our volunteers to come with an open mind and be flexible to the whole experience! It takes time for you to learn about the local women before you start your actual work and you need patience for that. Working in the community is not straightforward, there is no manual on how to proceed in these situations. You will be working with women of a totally different culture and lifestyle and at times it will be confronting. 

Daily Guidance 

You will be having a program coordinator at the program site which will help you, assist you and guide you how to do and help you in all ways. 

Program Location & Daily Transport Facility

We provide accommodation to participants at Indian host families that are in the center of Jaipur. Our program locations are just 15 mins with the tuk-tuk from your accommodation. It is just in the outskirts of Jaipur. Everyday the program taxi comes to pick you and once you finish the program it will drop you back at your place. 

Expectation, Qualification & Materials to bring

We expect volunteers to not act as if they were here as tourists, they must do the work they are supposed to do. They need to understand that they come for work and need to live like the people here live, respect the culture and get involved with all that is happening in India. There is no special qualification required for the program we just need your helping hands to run the program and help the women who come everyday to our center. You do not have to bring any material from your home as we provide all the things to participants. 

What you will gain from this program

  • memories to last a lifetime from both your work and of the incredible country of India
  • personal satisfaction and peace from giving back to the community
  • the opportunity to learn Indian culture, language and their traditions
  • volunteer experience working in an under-developed country to add to your CV
  • lifetime membership with VWI after completion of your program
  • make friends with people from all over the world

Volunteer Week Detail 

Day 1: Today you will arrive in Jaipur. A VWI staff member will pick you up from your arrival destination and welcome you. After picking you up, we will transfer you to your host family accommodation. We will introduce you to your host family members and guide you through the accommodation facilities and your local surroundings. You will be given a run down about the program, your daily working schedule, rules and regulation of volunteering, what the dos and don'ts of travelling in India are and advise you about facilities any traveler might need in a new place.

Day 2 to working days : You will be transferred to your program site. Your first day will be a learning experience, meeting new faces and seeing what your role will be. Days at the program site will include taking part in many of the activities you have read about. And maybe even a few spontaneous Bollywood dance-offs.

  • teaching them basic English and mathematics
