With more than 50 years of history working in Tamil Nadu, the Charity has deep connections within the community and uses volunteers to help run residential centers. The organization’s mission is to provide each child with a safe and secure environment, the opportunity of an education, and skills training for a future free from poverty.
Volunteers will have tasks allocated that will involve visiting projects and meeting the
children, particularly at weekends and evenings when they are not at school. They
may appreciate your help with homework, will no doubt want to practice their
English, and it is also a chance to use any skills of your own (music, sewing, sports,
etc, etc) which the youngsters will enthusiastically share with you.
The organization believes that every child has the right to grow up in a safe and secure environment, free from poverty and exploitation. As long as poverty afflicts individuals and communities, the Charity is committed to doing all it can to break its power and impact. That means working with partner organizations to restore dignity and wholeness to children’s lives.
Volunteers are all requested to fill out an application form and will normally be expected to attend an interview. All Volunteers must agree to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screening check.
Anywhere from two weeks to three months.
Although volunteering is free, there are clean simple guest accommodation available for volunteers, and volunteers are required to contribute towards accommodation overheads while working with the Charity.
