This fantastic program was developed to improve the education of children in the beautiful city of Jaipur. 

The aim of this teaching and assisting in schools program is to help lay the foundations for a better future for each child by providing a solid educational base for students. Volunteers will teach and assist local teachers across a range of subject matter, with a particular focus on the English language. As a busy tourism city, skills in English are seen as integral for future employment prospects.

A solid education can lay the path out of poverty for many, with volunteers greatly assisting on this road. Love Volunteer’s aim for this important program is that it is a mutual exchange of skills and experiences that enriches both parties. Volunteers may find that they learn as much from the children as the children will learn from the volunteers!

Goals of this Project:

  • Provide English skills to children in Jaipur
  • Improve the future prospects of the children of Jaipur
  • Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both students and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start every SATURDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to help create a brighter future for children through the power of education. This project best suits those with experience and/or qualifications in the field of childhood development and education, though volunteers who simply wish to explore an interest in this field are also welcomed as there are many ways you can assist in the classroom.

Whist not mandatory, completing a TEFL course prior to joining this project would prove to be highly beneficial. Ideally, volunteers on this project will have at least a basic knowledge of the local language in order to communicate effectively with staff and students, though this is not a pre-requisite. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

My Experience Teaching English in India with Love Volunteers

I went to volunteer for 3 months teaching English in New Delhi with Love Volunteers. I was teaching English to children between the ages of 5 and 12 in a low income area in the city. Although the school had only three rooms and a few basic materials , the welcome we received from the local teachers there was amazing. The kids were all motivated to learn, grateful to have someone to teach them, and full of energy!
At the same time, the volunteer house were I stayed was ran by two incredible kind and helpful men. Besides cooking delicious Indian and Nepalese food, they were always willing to help us with anything we might need - from buying a SIM card to planning a trip to Agra.

Lastly, the other volunteers that were living with me at that time made the experience exceptionally memorable. Everybody was cooperative, generous, and willing to explore the city. Throughout the three months I was there I got so close with some of them that we are still in touch and have visited each other even after the experience was over. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is willing to grow and become a better person!
