Delhi, the capital of India is one of the most culturally and historically rich city. Despite being one of the most important cities in the world, it is not perfect. 

There are a lot of children who are still not able to go to school and the ones' who do attend school are not getting any education outside their textbooks. At the same time, even though the nation is developing, women are still under the pressure of their social-economic status. 

As a volunteer in Delhi you can either opt to work with young children from the streets and also give cultural education sessions at schools or work with women to help empower them through skill training, language training, motivation etc. If you are someone who is interested or skilled in Marketing, work for an NGO to help develop their online reach, to help reach out to a larger audience.

Don't worry though, it is not all work. Delhi is a cultural hub and their is no lack of places to visit and enjoy with various markets, monuments etc inside Delhi and many cities surrounding it such as Agra which is famous for the Taj Mahal, Jaipur and Varanasi.

 

Volunteer Work:

1) Teaching - Your work time will be divided into two parts, half of the time will be spend teaching in a school. Here you will be interacting with a lot of students, giving them perspective about your own country. We generally ask our volunteers to prepare a presentation about their own country, a small lesson about their laguage. Apart from this you can teach subjects such as Mathematics, Science, English etc. If you are good a certain thing such as sports or arts and crafts, arrangements can be made for you sessions in these.

The remaining part of your volunteer work will take place in slum areas around the school where you will be taking classes of slum children. Keep in mind that these children don't have any formal education so most of the classes will be along the lines of nursery rhymes, teaching etiquettes, drug awareness etc. The most important thing is to bond with them. Volunteers often end up becoming like an older brother/sister figures for these children and this helps them try harder to achieve something in life. Food and cloth distribution drives will also be arranged.

2) Marketing - The NGO you will be working for, works for the development of leadership amongst the youth in the country by organising various leadership sessions, programs etc. Help the organisation reach out to the youth through Social Media, Website, interesting blogs, posters etc. Use our creativity to help them get the word out.

 

About Delhi:

Being the center of power of so many dynasties before India gained independance you can find monumnets from the British, Mughal era and also from the rulers before them. Various monuments such as Red Fort, Qutab Minar, India Gate etc are within reach. You can also learn more about the Indian culture by visiting the various places of religion such as Akshardham, Lotus temple or the Jama Masjid and Bangla Sahib. Visiting these places will show you how India is one of the most secular countries in the world.

Life Changed forever

The TTW program in Delhi was just amazing! The staff was really helpful and sweet! The orientation was very interesting and informative. I really ended up using the tips and guidelines they told me about there. I made so many friends from all over the world whom I will never forget. My only regret is that I could only come for two weeks. I was almost in tears when I left India because I had to say bye to my amazing host, new friends and the sweet little angels I was teaching in the school. I’m happy I choose TTW and India for my travel abroad. I will definitely come back to them again very very soon.

First International Trip

Initially before coming to India, I was very scared. I had never been out of my country and on a spontaneous decision decided to go on a solo trip to another country. When I arrived in India, it was a totally different case. After a tiring flight, I was received by Aman who was my coordinator. He treated me to a yummy Indian meal and then dropped me at my homestay. I was staying with one of the teachers in the school I was volunteering in. She was an amazing host and showed me around the entire city. Even in the school I was met with a very friendly environment with very cute children always coming up to me asking questions about my country. Overall, I feel India is a part of me now and I have a family with ttw and my host Miss Dipti whenever I go back to India again.
