As a volunteer you can make a difference in children’s lives. You will meet with them on a one to one basis; help them bridge the gaps in various subjects.

Indian education system is not same in the whole country. In the major cities, there are some high fee paying schools and children from wealthy families only can afford those schools. But, there are also so many schools in the rural areas, and there are fewer teachers to give the proper education.

Also, the dropout rate is higher in the countryside. Parents want an extra hand to work to get some extra money. With the challenges that face the Indian education system and learners too, there are bound to be some who will be left behind such that they will require specialized attention.

It could be children who perhaps have problem attending school due to various issues, private tutors will help them catch up and even prepare for the examination. You will not only be helping the children to catch up with the rest but will also be an inspiration to them. You can teach the English language, help them with mathematics and basic Computer skills or any other creative subjects. It is a rare opportunity to help children who have problems with their learning; you will inspire a child and make a difference in the society.

iSpiice believes that some students require private tuition in order to reach their full potential and succeed in their lives. That is why we offer volunteers opportunities to work one-on-one with young people who require some extra attention and guidance. We also run small after-school English groups for people from local villages.

iSPiiCE Volunteer as a Private Tutor, Dharamsala, India Reviews

Amazing Time Volunteering Helping Children

I went to volunteering on a childcare project with iSPiiCE in India and it was such a wonderful experience. Many of the children I got to help didn't go to school and the whole experience gave me such a good insight into life in India. In my spare time I got to lots of fun activities like trekking, seeing temples and more. Highly recommended if you would like to travel and volunteer in India.
