Make a REAL difference in India with Childcare & Development Program
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Love Volunteers
Due to extreme poverty, gender bias towards males and ill health, thousands of orphans in India are given refuge in orphanages and shelter homes run by various non-governmental organizations. The children who find themselves living at one of these facilities have often come from tremendously difficult and traumatic circumstances, leaving them distressed and detached from the joys of childhood we so often take for granted. The aim of this wonderful program then is to assist in helping with, and caring for these neglected children, and the assistance of international volunteers is desperately needed. Volunteers will participate in the daily routines and can make a great contribution just by being caring and giving the children some much-needed attention. By being there to offer care and compassion, volunteers are making a huge impact on the lives of these wonderful children.
Goals of this Project:
- Provide essential childcare to vulnerable children in Delhi
- Improve the future prospects of the children in Delhi
- Give impoverished and vulnerable children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
- Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

How To Apply
Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of India. This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist. However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!
