Use your creativity and enthusiasm to care and nurture for children. Help them to maximise their potential by providing them with much needed confidence. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Leeftijd 18+
Alleenstaanden
Koppels
Groepen

As a Childcare volunteer in India, you will brighten the days of young ones, making an important contribution to their lives. As a volunteer with children in India, you will act as role models to underprivileged individuals. Our volunteers coordinate fun activities and assist with tasks such as homework, to make a positive impact on local communities. Above all you will be assisting with the general childcare and daily activities at your volunteer placement. 

Each day on this childcare volunteer abroad program in India is different and you will get out of the project what you put in. It is a good idea to join the project well prepared with lots of ideas of activities so that you can get stuck in as soon as possible. As a childcare volunteer in India, you have the opportunity to think and act creatively. As a consequence, they make a positive impact on the lives of young ones within the local community.

TRAVEL TIPS

You should arrive into Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi (airport code DEL) on the selected Sunday start date.  Programmes start on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month. You will be met at the airport by one of our local staff or an appointed driver who will be holding a named sign. They will take you to your accommodation where you will spend the rest of your day at leisure.

The programme ends on the Sunday of your final week and you should depart the accommodation on this day.

VACCINATION

As we are not medical experts we cannot, unfortunately, tell you exactly what vaccinations you’ll need to obtain so it is vital you consult your local GP or travel clinic a few months before you intend to travel. Your local doctor/nurse will advise you as to what vaccinations and malaria prevention is needed for entry into your volunteer destination.

ESSENTIAL PROGRAM INFORMATION

Like all our projects in India, it is possible to combine this project with any of our other programmes. If this is something you’d like to do, please highlight this in your online application. Alternatively, you can discuss the possibility with our local team during your in-country orientation.

For the majority of our programmes you can apply at any time. However, we advise that you apply as soon as possible to ensure we have availability on the programme – particularly if you’re looking to travel between June and August, as spaces can fill up very quickly during this period.

It is best that you apply sooner rather than later as some of our programmes only have a limited capacity and spaces get filled very quickly. 

Can I use this program as part of a university or college placement? 

It is certainly possible to use one of PMGY’s programmes as part of your university or college placement. Project staff can sign off any paperwork required by your course tutors. PMGY regularly receives medical, childcare, psychology and nursing placement students at our projects around the world and we have ties with some of the leading universities.

If you’re a course tutor and would like further information about how one of PMGY’s programmes could meet the placement requirements for your degree course then please contact us.

Is it safe to travel to PMGY destinations?

Although our volunteers work in the developing world, we always ensure our host locations are safe. Each programme has been extensively researched and has passed our strict vetting process. Our UK team undergo an extensive routine when establishing our in-country infrastructures and we continue to monitor our safety procedures on a regular basis. Furthermore, we monitor the stability of our volunteer destinations on a daily basis. Through our constant contact with consulates and embassies and our reports from our overseas teams, we are able to ensure that our volunteers are never placed in unstable regions.

The PMGY team have visited and participated in every programme we offer and verified them based on our own independent criteria. We carefully inspect every little detail of our set-up. From inspecting the living conditions, checking out the neighbourhoods you’ll be staying in, to tasting the food you’ll be eating – each and every programme we establish has gone through a lengthy and rigorous vetting process. Risk assessments have been written for all areas in which PMGY operate and our experienced local coordinators are always on-hand to manage any emergencies that may occur. Our UK team are always on the road reviewing our risk management procedures in the field and monitoring local conditions. 

In emergency situations we have the necessary protocols and equipment in place and we are able to evacuate our volunteers from potential dangers. Our local coordinators are trained to deal with emergency circumstances. 

All volunteers will receive a PMGY Volunteer Handbook once they have paid their deposit and confirmed their place on the programme. We will send you an email entitled ‘Welcome to PMGY’ which will include a link where you can download the Volunteer Handbook. Please note that we DO NOT send a hardcopy of the PMGY Volunteer Handbook.

This Handbook contains literally everything you need to know – from what to pack, to how to obtain a visa, to local language guides. It is really important that you read through the Volunteer Handbook carefully once you’ve downloaded it. If you require any further information not covered in the Volunteer Handbook then our team are always on-hand to assist you. 

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Similar to other developing countries, across India, hundreds of thousands of children find themselves with insufficient levels of care. Over 5% of all children in India are without any form of support from a parent or guardian – approximately 20 million of India’s population. Not all of these children have physically lost both of their parents. However, many of them are sadly abandoned, with poverty a leading factor of this. Across India, many parents simply do not have the income or resources to provide care for their children. Consequently, many of these children find themselves in the undeveloped childcare system with nowhere else to turn. Typically, this system lacks the funding, resources and manpower to take proper care of these children.

Volunteers with children in India with PMGY work to support children centres in the Faridabad community. Not only do volunteers provide a friendly face to brighten up a child’s day, but they work hard to support and lead activities, making days at the centres fun and productive. Volunteers with children in India are required to have masses of energy, enthusiasm and creativity to ensure that contributions to the project can be as successful as possible. Volunteering with children is a highly rewarding experience and one that people from all backgrounds can get involved in.

CHILDCARE VOLUNTEER PLACEMENT EXAMPLES

Sector 10 Program - Established by the PMGY local team, this project provides support for children from the Sector 10 community. For context, this is the community in which the local team are from and where volunteers are based during their time in India. Hence, the team have been passionate to establish a community childcare and education program within their immediate local area to keep giving back.

Around 50 children attend the Sector 10 program each day. Many of these children come from the local slum communities. The children usually segment into two groups, with younger children and slightly older children. As a childcare volunteer in India, your role is to work with the younger children where activities are less education based. Instead, spending time making arts and crafts activities, developing playground games in the local park , hygiene education and supporting with early years development. Whereas those who want to focus more on teaching, will work with the older children to teach basic English and Maths amongst other subjects.

It can often be the case that the older children coming to the project each day to learn are responsible for their younger siblings. With no access to childcare at home, they bring their younger siblings to the project. India childcare volunteers play a vital role in supporting these children as well as all the other younger children at the project.

The project usually runs in the morning for around 3 hours. The morning will start with the national anthem, nursery rhymes and some exercise with the whole group. For the next couple of hours, the childcare volunteers will work with the younger children and the teaching volunteers will teach the older children. The group then reconvene for the final hour usually involving some Bollywood dancing and snack time. A local teacher and coordinator are on hand to support volunteers with the tasks and activities at the project.

Alice In Wonderland - PMGY fund and support a children’s home for 7-10 children aged from 6 to 17 years old. The home is located next to the main Volunteer House, so the children receive regular support from our volunteers. There is a house father who manages the home on a day-to-day basis. However, volunteers play an important role in looking after the children in their free time. This ranges from helping them with their homework to playing games. The local team frequently arrange activities for the children to engage in, from kickboxing to yoga. Childcare volunteers on this program in India will accompany the children. Not only do volunteers provide encouragement to the children, but they provide a helping hand as they develop new skills.

Lakshya Kadam - Set up in 2004, Lakshya Kadam is a youth home. The home is operated by once run-away street children, working with children rescued from Delhi Railway Station. Although PMGY does not directly run this home, our childcare volunteers make regular visits. Our international volunteers both support and complement the services mediated by the local staff.


Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

IN & AROUND FARIDABAD
PMGY volunteers are based in Faridabad, a satellite city of Delhi located In the National Capital Region (NCR) of New Delhi. Just 25km from Delhi, volunteers are far enough away to enjoy a quieter setting (by Indian standards!) but close enough to absorb all the magic, mystery and mayhem that Delhi has to offer.

Faridabad is a comfortable, well-connected location to live and work in. There are a few tourist spots worth a visit such as: Baba Farid’s tomb (its believed Faridabad was named after him); Badhkal Lake and Raja Nahar Singh Palace. There are also some interesting temples and local parks for you to visit as well as markets and shopping malls, including a cinema if you fancy going to see some Bollywood flicks!

Our participants are situated in a great location to explore the local sites and also travel further afield.

DELHI
Delhi is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and home to 25 million people. Despite this it is a relatively easy city to find your way around in and made infinitely easier by its gleaming, cheap and efficient metro. The city is split into two parts: Old Delhi, a 17th Century walled city with narrow alleys, constant traffic and main tourist sites and the spacious, planned areas of New Delhi.

Old Delhi is littered with the relics of lost empires such as the imposing Mughal-era Red Fort, a symbol of India, and the sprawling Jama Masjid mosque, the largest in India, whose courtyard accommodates 25,000 people! Nearby is Chandni Chowk, the main street of Old Delhi and a vibrant bazaar filled with food carts, sweets shops and spice stalls.

TAJ MAHAL
The magical allure of the Taj Mahal draws tourists to Agra like moths to a wondrous flame. Widely considered to be the most beautiful building in the world, despite the hype, it is every bit as good as you’ve heard.

The Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan as a memorial to his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th child in 1631. The death of Mumtaz left the emperor so heartbroken that his hair is said to have turned grey virtually overnight. Construction of the Taj began the following year but the whole complex was not completed until 1653, 22 years later. Not long after it was finished Shah Jahan was overthrown by his son Aurangzeb and imprisoned in Agra Fort where, for the rest of his days, he could only gaze out at his creation through a window. Following his death in 1666, Shah Jahan was buried here alongside Mumtaz.

’JAIPUR - 'PINK CITY'
Jaipur, the vibrant capital of Rajasthan is popularly known as the ‘Pink City’ for its trademark building colour in the wonderful old city. This buzzing metropolis is certainly a place of wild contrasts and is a feast for the eyes. Vegetable-laden camel carts thread their way through streets jam-packed with cars, cows, rickshaws, bicycles, motorcycles and pedestrians frantically dodging the incessant traffic!

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Indira Gandhi International Airport

On-arrival into Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi (DEL) you will be met at arrivals by one of PMGY’s appointed and trusted drivers who will speak a decent level of English. They will be holding a PMGY sign. It is advised that volunteers purchase a PMGY volunteer t-shirt and wear it on their flight, as this makes it easier for us to identify you at the airport.

Once you’ve located the driver, they will introduce themselves to you and drive you straight to the Volunteer House where you will be staying. The journey takes around 1 to 1.5 hours. On-arrival at the Volunteer House, you will be met by one of our local coordinators and your fellow volunteers.

Accomodatie

Volunteer House

All volunteers live in a Volunteer House accommodation in Faridabad during their time on the programme. Volunteers are housed with a wonderful host family who coordinate our projects in India. The Volunteer House is large, clean, and has all essential facilities you need. Volunteers have their own separate living quarters, but still have regular interaction with our local coordinator and his family. This accommodation setup offers volunteers the unique experience of living with lots of other volunteers as well as getting the cultural immersion of staying with a host family. It really is the best of both worlds!

You will share a room with fellow volunteers (sometimes rooms are mixed gender). All bathrooms have western toilets and showers. Wi-Fi is available free of charge, although it is intermittent. There are facilities for volunteers to hand-wash and dry their clothes. A laundry service is also available for a nominal fee. You will find all the amenities you require such as supermarkets, pharmacies, and banks etc all within walking distance of the Volunteer House.

During the summer months, we run multiple Volunteer Houses as we receive a high number of volunteers during this period. All Volunteer Houses are of similar quality and are located within a short drive of each other. A member of the PMGY team will live at the house to support volunteers, prepare meals, and manage the upkeep of the house.

Gastfamilie
Eten & Drank

You will be provided with three meals a day. All meals are freshly prepared and made up of vegetarian ingredients. Furthermore, most meals are typical Indian dishes, although pasta and other such western dishes are prepared every now and then. If you are not a huge lover of spicy food don’t worry, there will always be a more mild option available!

Volunteers are advised to notify our local team if the food is not to their taste who will aim to adjust the food appropriately.

* Please inform us in your application if you have any specific dietary requirements.
