Life as a Volunteer
We have the best instructors
Our organization encourages the participation of volunteers who support our mission.
More and more these days people are looking for ways to volunteer in India, there is something about this country that has an appeal for those who are wanting to do good in the world.
There is a huge multitude of ways that visitors and volunteers can help out here on our orphanage. Occasionally things go so well that volunteers end up returning time and time again… some even end up joining us on staff.
We prefer to individually work out somewhat of a timetable for each visitor that fits in with our children’s home duties, school and tuition timetables.
Example Volunteer Timetable
7:00 am – Common Prayer and meditation
7:30 am – Breakfast
8:00 am – Volunteer Work Around The Mission
10:00 am – Morning Tea
10:30 am – Volunteer Work
1:00 pm – Lunch Break
3:00 pm – Volunteer Work
4:00 pm – Afternoon Tea
5:30 pm – Free Time
8:00 pm – Dinner
Generally, we like to find out from a volunteer what area of ‘work’ might interest them the most. That said, we are not always able to provide the exact job that a volunteer might want to do. We want your time with us to be productive, beneficial, and enjoyable for everyone. Volunteer work can be things like:
- Reading to children / Library management
- Helping out on the farm/workshop
- Painting & Teaching
- Gardening & landscaping
- Running activities/games
- Cooking or cleaning
