The Organization is running a center for the Street children in India which are found on the streets, traffic signals, railway stations and Bus Stands. We have a team of local volunteers which always in search of the children which are kidnapped by the criminal gangs in India, children which are left on roads due to affecting by poverty and also rescued them from child-labor. Street Children are forced to do work like rag-picking, begging, jewelry & stone cutting work and many other domestic tasks they are involved with their parents or by the kidnapping gangs. The criminal gangs in India use street children for child labor by making them addict of drugs. Every month we rescued around 30-40 Street Children with the help of police and local volunteers from gangs. We have build up a center specially for these kids which is known as Bal Basera ( Street Kids Shelter ). All the children in center are living together just like an orphanage house. They are provided with accommodation facility, food, class room for everyday classes, education material and a playing garden. This project is also called as one of our Street Child Rescue Project India. Since 2009 with the help of our Local NGO team we have repatriate around 2500 children to their home. Volunteering in India with Street Children Program can make your involvement in a huge role for the development of these children in India.
Work for Volunteers: The work assigned to volunteers in this program to be engage with the local staff in teacing basic English & mathematics, health awareness and personality development program. Personality development includes talking about having a positive attitude towards life, self-esteem, manners, speaking and behaving in public etc. Along with education classes volunteers can also be involved in the extracurricular activities for children like art & craft work, drawing, painting, music/dance. The Center also has a garden where children go and play. Sports and games have also been organized by volunteers in order to develop their physical stamina; all these are very helpful in making their life better and in rehabilitating them. Note :- This project is involved in the rescue of the children in India for child labor or kidnapped may be while you are working the number of attendance of children can increase or decrease as our rescue operation works 24×7.
Employees in the Project: We run this project with our partner NGO which has local volunteers who take care of these children. One of our program coordinator will always be there at the project site to assist the foreign volunteers. Local volunteers are not good in English so the coordinator helps foreign volunteers in all stages.
Expectations: We expect volunteers to not act as if they are here as tourists, they must do the work they are here to do. They need to understand that they come for work and need to live like the people here live, respect the culture and get involved with all that is happening in India.
Shopping and supplies: There are many shops near the accommodation where volunteers can go and buy stuff for their requirements. The accommodation facility in the main city area of Jaipur so it’s easy to buy anything as shops are in walking distance. If a volunteer wants to go in Branded Shopping mall they need to take a Taxi ( Tuk- Tuk ). When our taxi driver is not taking them to the project site, he can be hired by volunteers to take them to the Branded Shopping mall, but they have to pay him.

Last summer, august of 2013, I and my daughter spent 3 weeks volunteering for The Working with Children Project, set up through the Volunteering with India (VWI) Organization. Overall the experience was amazing and worthwhile, highly recommended for those interested in travel, the culture of India and making a difference.
When volunteering for The Working with Children Project, the volunteer’s main objectives are teaching English and Mathematics, although the work day also includes a dance time prior to lunch and arts and crafts/ life skills project in the afternoon. We were lucky to be with the two of us and found it useful to divide the boys and sometimes some girls into different groups in which we were able to adjust our teaching to better suit their needs.

We started our days with English, everyday repeating days of the week, We worked with basic attributes as the alphabet, marks, colors, months, seasons, fruit, vegetables, parts of the body, the parts of the house etc. We connected these topics with the other subjects, which included drawing and coloring fruit and vegetables, the parts of the body and house with the different types of rooms. I brought along with me balloons and we played a game with one balloon. I brought also some skipping-ropes with me, it was nice to see how they made their best efforts to jump. We all really enjoyed this and we had fun together!
Teaching can be cumbersome due to the wide variety of students, i.e. given their age and the various degrees of education. One suggestion, when possible, is to place the children into different groups depending on education level and creating lessons for each level. Another suggestion might be to bring materials from home if available or wanted, for example glue sticks, scissors, pencils, since classroom materials are limited. The children had only a pencil and a notebook. For the teacher there was a blackboard.
Most of all we tried to be there for the children- tried to make them smile and laugh – praising their work and effort, trying to help and encourage them to take a step “small” forward. We really enjoyed it and had fun together and we could share love.
The VWI organization was fabulous. They helped us to do volunteer works as easy as possible by arranging the transport to the school and back to the family of the guesthouse. The trips in the weekend were also organized perfectly by Sukret arrange. Totram was a fantastic driver in the busy traffic of Jaipur. After a couple of days I travelled relaxed in the tuc-tuc. He also knew the best place to drink Chai after the work in the school. Govind was very kind and helped me very good to translate my English in Hindi. They all were personable and friendly. It felt like a big family, especially when my daughter was ill and must go to the hospital. They helped me as much as possible. After a laborious start with the family later we have a good contact. So we could share life’s and we had real personal contact and the contact with the local people were really appreciated, Thank you Sukret, Govind, Totram, the family and last but not least the children of the school, Thank you very much for this great lovely experiences in your colorful exciting country. I take all of you with me in my heart. Now I walk in the garden of the good memories.

Working with the VWI was the best choice ever. Especially not only teach children but also learning more deeply about the organization was insightful. (Example – mobile van clinic). At the beginning, I did not like that fact I only could stay/work here 5 to 6 hours where I wanted stay longer with children. So thanks so much for being flexible and accommodated.

Also visiting famous places in Jaipur (sightseeing included chokhi dhani, monkey palace) was so great and I love meeting families and friends of Sukret, Govind, totram ji and host family house as I value fine experience with local people and personal connections. Peoples in India have been so inclusive and welcoming so I had amazing fine participating like kite festival and wedding ceremonies. VWI has well chosen staff for their work and you guys have been very professional, friendly and lovely. I love the fact that VWI made things so easy for me include transport, pick up daily, accommodation includes food so that I could focus my time and energy more important thing like children project. So I really appreciate it.
I found staff at the project site very helpful if you ask questions and be open. Don’t expect them to come to you; here in India you open and say hello first if you want to become friend with them. Love working from early morning so I can utilize well of each afternoon for more teaching, shopping, visiting etc. Project staff love me stay longer hours and showing deep interest for in what they doing. Also I had opportunity to visit the Elephant house although it was not my project. It was so good to experience and see other VWI projects so definitely consider doing for future volunteers. It is not very easy work what VWI do accommodate each individual needs, so thanks for doing your best and help me to have colorful, fun, meaningful and memorable time in India. I recommend to future volunteers to use your service.

I spend unforgettable time here and I am sad to leave all the kids here. I hope I will be able to come back Soon!

It was also good to see another school for children care as it was not in our project. I also visited the mobile van clinic which stands everyday in slum areas to provide free medical facilities to children & people.

I was a volunteer in a program created by VWI for a month in 2010. My work involved teaching street children different ways of how to stay healthy but I also worked there as a professor. I am half Indian and so my mother taught me Hindi and this made it easier for me to get along with the children, and so I did not get to use the help of the translator that much. Before coming to Jaipur, I knew that the welfare level of the people is not high, but I have to say it was a bit of a shock when I saw with my own eyes how the people live there.
I never thought that people can have it so bad anywhere in this world and still be so opened to foreigners. I was amazed to see how good the children reacted to my presence there. It is sad to say that children don’t get any chance at a normal development, at a normal childhood, and basically at a normal life. Even now I remember their faces, the way they looked at me with their eyes, it was like they were waiting for something, waiting for the bad to be over. Even if they are at a young age, they are more mature than grown ups because they had to face the harsh things of life with no one to protect them. I hope that what I taught them will help them keep a more healthy and safe life.
There is a huge need for volunteering and projects to protect those children. After coming back from India, my wife informed me that I will be a father and this determines me even more to support VWI in its work for the protection of children. Every child has the right to a family, to a normal life and happiness.

I would like to give 10 out 10 to the Organization. I have had such an amazing time with VWI. The host family, the accommodation, the food, the transportation and my work at center. Everything was so perfect! I could hardly complain about anything. The loads of hope and happiness that was transmitted to me every working day through the kids genuine smiles is probably the memory I will cherish more out of my volunteer experience. I am so thankful for everything. Thank you VWI!

The Arrival pick up service was fine. The Host family was very kind and accommodating. The house was clean and well kept. Transportation service was amazing!!!

The Arrival pick up service was fine. The Host family was very kind and accommodating. The house was clean and well kept. Transportation service was amazing!!! Appreciate greatly that transportation to work-site and on weekends was included, made the travel easy and you felt safe. The Project Staff members were great and very professional. Translation is key to the work performed. I decided to volunteer with VWI to get involved with a great cause while being able to learn and experience a new culture and country. Overall I would rank the whole experience as a 10, had great fun.
