Volunteer with Street Children in Dharamsala, India

Company : iSPiiCE
Duration: 2 weeks to 3 months
Approx Costs: 250 to 1000 $ Dollars (US)

India has the largest population of street families and children; perhaps this is due to the fact that the India is one of the most populous countries in the world.

These children and families find their way to the street when they come looking for elusive jobs, after days, months and years without a job they turn to the street, here they get their food and shelter. As an organization, we have been playing our part to ensure that these people find a better life. As a volunteer in India, your services will go a long way in improving the livelihood of these children and their families.

There are teaching opportunities where the volunteers can teach English and other subjects like Maths and Computers. Volunteers make daily visits to the children where they also play with the children, teach them new songs and plays. It is an exciting program that engages the volunteers fully and also imparts skills that no classroom can teach.

Your work will, giving the primary education, teach them the English language, make them able to work on different sectors in future. Also, need to develop some basic skills and the ability to speak in the right manner.

We assist children living in a local Dharamsala slum with a range of different activities and support. Many of the children living in that area do not attend school, and so our volunteers can provide some much-needed education. We create a safe environment where children get the best possible chance of making a change in their lives.

Life Changing Experience Experience

This experience was amazing in so many ways. You will learn so much about the culture and way of living, you will experience beautiful nature, country, hectic and full of energy city streets, and markets. You will always be and feel welcomed and appreciated while volunteering in any project. I worked with kids in a small village school and also with the kids in the slum areas. ISPiiCE staff and volunteer home are very accommodating. I met wonderful people along the way and now have life long friends. You will enjoy visiting tea plantations, the amazing Taj Mahal, trekking the Himalayas, visiting the Dali Llama school and museum, and so much more! I was there for 3 weeks and would highly recommend this program, you will forever have India in your heart after you leave.
