Child Care in India

Einsatzort: Indien, Asien
Aktions-Bereich: Soziale Freiwilligen-Projekte, Kinder-und Jugendbetreuung
Create exciting sessions to develop the children’s creative and communication skills at day care centres and community outreach projects. Help promote the importance of hand washing alongside the local organisation. Learn Hindi and explore local cultural sites.



Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

Volunteer role at the project:

In the mornings volunteers organise sessions to help encourage the children to develop their speaking and listening skills. Volunteers work in child care centres with children from 1-6 years old to help develop their concentration and gain classroom experience to give them the skills they will need when they start school. Volunteers will be involved in:

  • running educational activities
  • organising creative games
  • assisting the day care staff with meal times
  • ensuring that all children wash their hands before eating to help educate the children on the importance of hygiene

In the afternoons volunteers work as team alongside Community Education volunteers to run after-school activities at local community outreach projects and a disabled school for children aged between 3-16 years old. Volunteers will organise sessions which can include:

  • games
  • sports or dance
  • music or art and craft sessions
  • English and Maths lessons

How the project is making a difference:

The project that you will join in India provides continuous assistance to day care centres and schools which have limited funding and resources.

The day care centres provide care and health support to low income families in the community. Many children are often left to fend for themselves or look after younger siblings while their parents work 12 hour days. The day care centres provide a safe, supported environment for the children to learn and play, they are also provided with a nutritious meal.

The community outreach project was established by the team in 2015 to support a neighbouring community who rely on collecting rubbish to sell in order to generate income for their families. The project aims to encourage the community to start engaging with the education system and increase the communities' skills.

Why volunteers are needed:

Volunteers provide essential assistance to support the underfunded and understaffed nurseries and schools, in an effort to improve the support and education levels of children in the city of Udaipur. Volunteers are able to draw on their own experiences to organise and run fun new games and creative activities for the children.

Volunteers work with the local team to visit community projects and encourage children to attend the day care centres, volunteers also act as positive role models for the children.

Die Freiwilligen-Organisation stellt sich vor

We are an award winning non-profit organisation arranging ethical, inspiring and supported volunteering opportunities around the world since 2001. Volunteers are needed from 2 - 12 weeks for animal, conservation, child care, education, teaching, building and community volunteering projects in Asia, Africa and Central & South America.

In this time of uncertainty during the current Coronavirus outbreak, we are monitoring the global situation closely in conjunction with the UK FCO and our local teams on the ground. The health and safety of our volunteers is our primary concern and we will only restart placements when it’s safe to do so. It’s not yet clear when this will be but we aren’t accepting new bookings for placements before 1 October 2020.

We want to reassure volunteers that you can feel confident booking an overseas volunteering placement with us and we have introduced extra flexibility to help with this.

Flexible payment terms
We are giving added flexibility on payments. Normally we ask for final payment by 8 weeks before start date, but we are reducing this to 1 month before start date for placements with start dates in 2020. This takes some pressure off volunteers and allows us to see how the situation evolves over the coming months.

Flexible date changes
If any of our volunteers want or need to reschedule (regardless of whether it is related to Coronavirus or not!), we are happy to reschedule for up to 18 months. You just need to let us know 1 month or more before your placement date and it can be open ended if you aren’t sure when you want to reschedule to. We are keeping this free of charge for maximum flexibility!

Booking flights – wait for now
We normally recommend that volunteers book flights as soon as possible after their placement is confirmed to secure the best deals, but with the current uncertainty, it’s best to wait until travel restrictions are lifted and the airlines can confirm their schedules before booking flights and making other arrangements.

We’d love to help organise your next volunteer adventure, ready for when the world has returned to some kind of normality!
