The India’s city is having a vast problem of a particular community residing in temporary tents besides the streets. These communities migrate from their native villages toward cities in search of work. They are totally illiterate and lack basic amenities of life in addition to this they have no measures of birth control and therefore posses large families consisting of 4-6 children in each family. These children due to lack of proper care by their poor parents roam around in the streets in search of food/work and therefore they are called Street Children.
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.
