Globe Aware's India program is based in Jaipur.


One of the major issues in India is “the social status of women.” Girls can be considered a burden and many parents do not encourage education. More than 40% of girls and women are illiterate and end up marrying at a young age.


Projects

You will assist with empowerment projects for women, by teaching basic subjects, English communication, boosting self-confidence, as well as engaging in crafts and hand-work which the women can sell and make profits from.


You will also be volunteering at a school that serves the local poor children, often neglected in Indian society. All the parents of these children are from the economical, weaker section and are mostly daily wage earners like rickshaw drivers, laborers etc. The school also has few resources due to lack of funds and teachers. As a volunteer you will provide a much-needed hand to the different age groups by teaching basic courses, games, sports, and arts and crafts. With your assistance, these kids are able to catch up with their peers and receive opportunities they would not otherwise have.
