Description

Want to help the children worst affected by the plight of poverty? This program is for you!

Among the poorest inhabitants of India’s cities are families living in tent communities. Severely lacking basic necessities and resources, their children take to the streets.

Love Volunteers works closely with a local organization that has established a school to provide free education, educational materials, uniforms, and play materials to these unfortunate children.

On this program, volunteers will assist with tasks including teaching Basic English & Mathematics, colors & shapes, animal and sounds, manners, art activities, creativity exercises like drawing, painting, music and dance, ensuring regular attendance of children by motivating them, promoting basic hygiene awareness among children, and developing motor skills of the children through playing games.

As with all of our programs in India, volunteers are accommodated within our comfortable volunteer house, where you will have the opportunity to meet and socialize with many other like-minded people from around the world. Two home-cooked meals are provided each day and Wi-Fi and laundry services are available.

Highlights

Here’s why more and more people are choosing to become a LOVE VOLUNTEER!
Need – We work directly with local charities on grass-roots community development projects. Our focus is on providing support where it is really needed - not holidays! We keep volunteer numbers at sustainable levels to meet the needs of each project - not to increase revenue!

Impact – By becoming a Love Volunteer you are saying to the world that you are a REAL volunteer and your focus is on supporting people and communities in need. You’re not just a tourist and your goals include much more than selfies and hangovers. Your contribution with LV will be real and measurable. You will change lives, and one of them will be your own!

Safety – Your safety is our top priority. We have personally visited and regularly audit all of our projects and accommodations so you can rest assured that your needs will be met, whilst getting the most out of your experience.

Support – With dedicated in-country teams, you know you will have 24/7 support right there when you need it – guaranteed! From simply questions to hospital trips, we will ensure you are supported throughout your placement.

Communication – We pride ourselves in our reputation as always being available when you need us, dealing with your questions quickly, and being prompt with all communications. We are here to help you help the world!

Value – We strive to make volunteering abroad affordable and accessible to everyone. Our program fees are lower, our registration fees are lower – and we encourage you to compare!

Security – We have placed thousands of international volunteers in meaningful voluntary service projects around the world. We have the experience and the reputation, so you know you are in good hands!

Friendship – One of the benefits of volunteering is that you’ll meet new people and develop friendships that will last a lifetime. This is one of the true benefits of volunteering and we encourage you to make the most of the unique opportunity to develop these cross-cultural friendships.

Free time – We realize that everyone needs a break and encourage our volunteers to have a look around where and when possible. All you need to do is let us know what you want to do and we will do our very best to make it happen for you!
