Volunteering With India (VWI)

Childcare & Teaching Assistant

Jaipur, India

This program is to support children who are disadvantaged because of poverty or other circumstances.

About the Program

In this program we have children which are kidnapped by criminal gangs in India and forced into doing child labour, or they are left by their parents on railway station, bus stations, and next to traffic signals because of poverty. Some children are sent by their parents to do activities like begging, vending, selling cigarettes and tobacco, peddling lottery tickets etc. At the end of the day they give their earnings to their family as the whole family depends on their earnings. 

With the help of our team members and with the help of police we found these children at bus stations, railways stations, traffic signal. We bring these children in our center where we provide them with accommodation, food, education, personality development and many activities which a child needs for his growth. 

In 2006 we were doing this program in a rented flat but it was sold by the owner and we all were forced out, but with the help of the government we now have a very big hall for children to study in, a big hall for them to sleep, with kitchen and a space for them to play in. 

Since the program started we have repatriated more than thousands of children & the number is still going. After repatriating them we keep in contact with them to see if everything is going alright with these children. 

We run this program with our partner NGO which has local volunteers who take care of these children. One of our program coordinator will always be there at the program site to assist the foreign volunteers. Local volunteers are not good in English so the coordinator helps foreign volunteers in all stages. 

Mission of the Project

Our mission is to provide the best care and protection for these children; to preserve and protect their childhood rights. To bring them back into society by providing them with their basic necessities for life.

Role of the Volunteer

You as a volunteer will be involved in activities such as teaching them basic English and mathematics, personality development classes. Personality development includes talking about having a positive attitude towards life, self-esteem, manners, speaking and behaving in public etc. You will also be involved in activities related to art & craft work, such as drawing and henna painting. Health education programs such as the AIDS-awareness program make them be aware of health & hygiene tips and nutrition. Sports and games have also been organized by volunteers in order to develop their physical stamina; all these are very helpful in making their life better and in rehabilitating them.

Project Needs

Children in the project came here from the kidnapping gangs, some were left by their parents on railway stations, bus stations so they have a very sad past story. We need volunteers for this project because having volunteers with them at all time makes them happy and they feel that they have somebody taking care of them even if they don’t have parents. We do provide all education materials, food, accommodation facilities and sports equipment.

Employees

We run this project with our partner NGO which has local volunteers who take care of these children. One of our program coordinator will always be there at the project site to assist the foreign volunteers. Local volunteers are not good in English so the coordinator helps foreign volunteers in all stages.

Expectation, Qualification & Materials to bring

We expect volunteers to not act as if they are here as tourists, they must do the work they are here to do. They need to understand that they come for work and need to live like the people here live, respect the culture andget involved with all that is happening in India.
