Are you Looking to Volunteer in Orphanage India ? If yes, then VWI offers you to take part in the Orphanage Volunteer program in Pink city, Jaipur India. The children placed in orphanages really need love & care, just like our children. Every child needs love, kindness, attention and care. When the little human beings are born, they should be surrounded by loving people. But unfortunately, life dictates its harsh laws, and many children do not have anyone close who would care for them. Orphan children, like all children in the world deserve to be happy. Due to   various circumstances, they began their lives with sadness in their eyes, it’s through customs and traditions that children of different sexes are not provided with equal treatment; ignorance among young people about contraception and about the consequences of unwanted pregnancy, rape, and also severe disease of children, are causes for which parents abandon children; also, death of relatives is a cause for kids to become orphans – there are many inevitable realities of society. But also, almost as old as the concept of orphan is, and as old society is, there’s also the concept of volunteerism. Volunteering is a special view of life; it’s all very bright and good. There were always people who saw a higher purpose in serving others for the grater good. Therefore, we need “good people” or volunteers, who will give kindness and necessary care to orphans. The purpose of our Volunteer in India program is to find people that are able and willing to help children in orphanages.

WORK FOR VOLUNTEERS

In our orphanage volunteer program volunteers will be included in some of the daily chores. For example they will teach them basic English and Mathematics, help them in their daily school homework, organize health awareness program, the importance of sanitation and aid, like the importance of brushing their teeth, taking showers etc; they will also organize fun games for them that involve drawing, singing, dancing, and other creative educational and extracurricular activities; they will help with work in the kitchen, like cooking and distribution of food. Volunteers will participate in the daily lives of children, taking care of them, striving to develop their qualities, and give them happy moments in life. Volunteers will work with children aged 0 to 18 years. This is a very tender age when a child is formed as an individual and absorbs everything like a sponge, so he needs a lot of attention, care and energy and, of course, a kind heart, patience and understanding. As a Volunteer you can also be involved in administrative works of the orphanage and Other activities depending upon the time, situation, and need. Read Our –Volunteers Stories & Reviews about the Program.

Volunteering in an orphanage is like space traveling, like going to a completely different world for some time. People may ask me why do I say that and the answer is not one that sets the heart at ease. A human being is born, most of the times, in a family, having a mother and a father that will care for them for the rest of their lives, uncles, aunts and grandparents that will always think about them and a home in which they can grow and develop their talents...

Volunteering in an orphanage is like space traveling, like going to a completely different world for some time. People may ask me why do I say that and the answer is not one that sets the heart at ease. A human being is born, most of the times, in a family, having a mother and a father that will care for them for the rest of their lives, uncles, aunts and grandparents that will always think about them and a home in which they can grow and develop their talents andskills. But those things don’t happen to every soul that is being brought to life. There are those children that will never know the love of a parent and the comfort of a home. Those children are left alone and in the best case scenario they go to an orphanage. It’s a completely different world the one in which they live, than the one most of us live in. By us I talk about people who have been blessed with loving families.

But even though orphan children don’t get to experience the life in a family, they are very loving and will always be happy to greet a volunteer that will be good to them. My time spent there is filled with happy memories. I got to help them with homework, to teach them English, but I also got to play with them. Somehow, even if I was a complete stranger to them, they let me get close to them and we got to share nice memories. This experience also helped me appreciate even more my own family and be thankful for every moment I spend with the loved ones.
VWI does an amazing job by organizing its volunteering programs. It helps bring a change for the better in the lives of children who don’t get a good start in life. I strongly recommend VWI to other people because they do a job that every human should do, that is helping the ones in need.

The beauty of India and the kindness of the people here and in my project, I cannot truly state one single thing that was the best part of mylife. I think that is because VWI gave me the opportunity to find a home away from home in Netherlands, working with orphan children and meeting local people here at the center was amazing.

The beauty of India and the kindness of the people here and in my project, I cannot truly state one single thing that was the best part of mylife. I think that is because VWI gave me the opportunity to find a home away from home in Netherlands, working with orphan children and meeting local people here at the center was amazing. They will be in my memories lifetime. I have thought a lot about how the time I spent in India has changed me. And I have come to the realization that I live now without stress. In Jaipur, India there was no emphasis on time or punctuality, which although is a wonderful attribute, is handled differently in Europe. If you see the people here and spend time with them you will feel everybody is so relaxed, free and comfortable in their life. VWI arrange everything for you like one of their team member come to pick me from Airport in Jaipur; transfer to your accommodation. The support level is very good as whenever I have query before joining the program Sukret email for all your questions in a very short time. The accommodation and food at the Indian family house was great. The family members were so nice and always helping me as well if I want something or go by my own in the town. This is a life changing-experience! Everybody needs to do once in their life. I will definitely recommend the program to future participants in VWI.

Volunteering With India is a great way to experience time as a local in India. I decide to volunteer with VWI as website was exciting, reviews online were also very good. Good range of programs to choose from. The family that hosts you in their guest house is friendly & welcoming. They are more than happy to try accommodate to spice preferences & tastes. The program is incredibly rewarding. The time spent at Taabar will be one that I will never forget & will cherish greatly. The Children are loving and try their best to make you feel included by teaching you words & games they enjoy playing. Being able to teach them life skills of reading, writing & speaking English in itself is a great reward for your time spent here. I would rate 5 stars to the program.
