Ladli is an organization in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India that provides training to street girls, orphans, and disadvantaged youth in the area. The organization provides safe spaces, classes, and workshops for the girls to learn and create. Volunteers are needed throughout the year to support the organization’s range of programs.
For most of the children with the organization, their alternative to education is begging, child labour, or even prostitution, but at Ladli they learn to make jewelry and handicrafts — both valuable skills in Jaipur. The children are also taught Hindi, English, Art and Dance, and provided nutrition, medical check-ups and counseling. Ladli is a safe way for visitors and street children to interact.
Minimum of two weeks. No maximum. Typically, volunteers stay at least a month. GV encourages volunteers to stay for a minimum of a month to guarantee the safety of the girls.
