to prevailing male dominating attitude in Indian
Hindu families irrespective of all caste, creed
and clans the lives of female counterparts are
often unfairly overburdened, filled with social
obstacles and blatant discrimination. Of the
most discriminatory practices, refusal of a
girl’s education is one. Parents’ expectations
of their daughters, in terms of education and
employment, are generally much lower than of
their sons. As a result, young girls are often
denied enrollment into school or taken out
early, forced to care for their young siblings
and assist with domestic responsibilities. The
impacts of gender inequality cause women to
feeling submissive and accept extremely low
self-esteem. The unequal gender roles can be
witnessed in all areas of life, from education,
to the work place.
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.
