Orphanage Work Project India
India Volunteer Programs: 1-52 weeks
The rigid social customs are the main source of orphanage creation. The carnal appetite is a natural phenomenon of living beings. Not getting the right match at right time for a girl or a boy lacking sex education promotes illicit relations between opposite sex. Such illicit relations give birth to a child not lawfully acceptable to society. Secondly, if a girl is raped against her will also produces a child not acceptable to society. Some time a child borne with certain mental or physical disabilities is also not acceptable to parents. All such off-springs are mercilessly thrown at doorsteps of orphanage. Since all such children are creation of God and are a part of this universe, they deserve similar love, affection and proper care as our own children do. Therefore we take the help of international volunteers to assist the orphanage staff in discharge of their duties. This serves the dual purpose; one- the children get much of love, affection, right care and another- more and more lovers of mankind are accumulated.
A day in the life of a volunteer
On working days, volunteers usually get up and have breakfast before leaving for their Volunteer Placements. Our staff will provide transportation to and from your Volunteer Placement if required. You will probably spend about four hours at your Volunteer Placement. Evenings will be filled with opportunities to learn about the local culture and customs, field trips to places of local interest, discussions with experts on local issues and others. Evening meal-times provide another exciting chance to enjoy authentic food provided by host family/our staff cooks. The food is delicious and healthy and takes full advantage of local cooking traditions. The evenings and weekends are free time, to relax or explore the local area. Volunteers often travel to other parts of the country at weekends, and the staff who are all from the local area themselves, are always happy to make recommendations.
