The volunteers in this project will work with physically and mentally challenged children. These children are discriminated and rejected by mainstream society and therefore volunteers are needed to participate and bring joy in their life, and help the local organisation to bring some structure changes in their daily lives and prepare them for adulthood.

Working with children with various forms of disability can be quite a challenging task for anyone. However, the spirit of these kids can bring lot of joy and a lot can be learnt from these experiences. The main work will be teaching and supporting the staff in their daily activities for the care of physically and/or mentally disabled children. Individual goal setting and planning for holistic development of children/persons with disability with home-based, community based or institutional based approach is essential for which volunteers as part of the group would contribute great deal. Flexibility and openness to all kinds of works and activities is needed. Additional work activities would involve maintenance and gardening work, preparing meals, serving them, cleaning and providing company.

A creative approach to work is useful and you will have the opportunity to initiate new mini projects or activities. You will need to take a flexible approach to the work and you should be prepared to undertake multiple tasks.

Language: English

Duration of the project: The project is run all year round. Minimum committment required is four months. The project starts on the first Monday of every month.

Accommodation: During the orientation week, the volunteers will stay together in a volunteer centre in Kundapur in shared bedrooms, and will take all three vegetarian meals together. Accommodation for the volunteers during the project can either be at the project site, in a local host family or in a hostel – depending on the project, location and availability.

Arrival and orientation: Volunteers arrive at Kundapur by the first Monday of each month. The program will start with a week-long orientation.
