Company : International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)
Activities: Community Volunteer Projects / Humanitarian Projects
Location : Delhi
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 250 to 2500 $ Dollars (US)

For many children in India, school is simply not an option as they work the streets with their parents to help stay alive (it is estimated there are 100 million street children in India) and you can apply to help.

Every day, 365 days of the year these children work the streets of Delhi with their parents, selling goods, foraging and performing to make a living. The Street Children program in India focuses on giving these children some enjoyment in their lives.

This program is popular with the children and their families as it gives them opportunities and perspectives on life they would never have otherwise been provided with. Volunteer work consists of taking basic school lessons, playing with the children, providing medical support for them and introducing them to activities (such as painting) that they would never otherwise have a chance to do.

We have six different street children projects in India; four are located in Faridabad, Delhi, one is in Noida, Delhi and one is in Jaipur.
