Volunteer opportunity posted by: CADIP - Canadian Alliance for Development Initiatives and Projects
Posted on: January 21, 2013
The volunteer projects take place in Jodhpur, in the state of Rajasthan, and are organised with the cooperation of local community for rural development and watershed management, environmental education and working together with local villages in rural development projects. Most of the schools around Jodhpur lack basic infrastructure like a school building, education materials, playgrounds and drinking water. Volunteers can make a big difference in the daily lives of these children by spending time with them and working to provide the necessities listed above.
The project will also involve teaching children from poor and marginalized community in the formal and non-formal schools about basic English and Mathematics, Health and Hygiene, and Environmental protection through creative learning methods like art, music, games, etc. There will also be house visits and meetings with local people as part of inter-cultural learning and to give awareness on health and hygiene. Volunteers can take the school children to places in the town like picnics and exposure visits. In addition, volunteers will also get a chance to take part in simple renovation work at local schools/orphanages and engage in activities like painting, tree planting, promoting rainwater harvesting, etc. As part of the cultural exchange, the volunteers will take part in cultural programs along with the local people.
Project dates: August 19 - September 1, 2013
