Childcare Center Volunteering in India from US$250

Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Activities: Humanitarian Projects / Orphanage Work
Location : Delhi
Duration: 1 week to 6 months
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

Orphanages and day care centres in India are often extremely full with children due to a lack of appropriate facilities, international volunteers are needed all year round.

Due to the high incidences of poverty and illness orphanages in India can host 50-300 children at any one time and there is always a high demand for more volunteer assistance. These orphanages and day care centres (who care for children from very poor families whose parents have to work during the day) face many problems such as a lack of funding, lack of resources and help.

Volunteers who work in an orphanage help with general work and daily chores. This work ranges from cooking and cleaning to farm work, assisting with feeding programs, caring for children and babies and teaching. Volunteers also assist the children with their education, through taking extracurricular lessons, assisting with homework and helping with general education on life skills such as personal hygiene.

We work with ten different orphanage projects, six of these are located in Faridabad, Delhi, two are in Noida, Delhi, one is located in Delhi centre and one is located in Jaipur. In many of the orphanage placements, volunteers will live on site at the orphanage with the children (not at home stays).
