Description

Escape To...by Fairkonnect is looking for international volunteers to create structure for a low-income elementary community school in India for it's Street Children project. India is home to the largest street children and migrant population in the world, estimated to be around 18 million. They are deprived of family care, protection, education, and basic needs like food and water. Street children in India are subject to malnutrition, hunger, health problems, substance abuse, theft, commercial sexual exploitation, harassment by the city police and railway authorities, as well as physical and sexual abuse.


Background

There is an elementary community school in need of volunteers that can assist in teaching as well as assistance with events, marketing and operations. The educational center needs volunteers to assist in classrooms with English, art, and activities to uplift and train children. A lot of help is needed in giving them vocational training so they can join some sort of trade as they grow older. Volunteers also like to engage them in sports and take them on outings such as the museum, the zoo, amusement parks, and more.
