When accompanying children with disabilities in a drop-in center, your tasks will include assisting local teachers and educators with their classes, providing educational ideas and tools. The school welcomes more than 100 children, suffering from various mental illnesses: dyslexia, autism, down syndrome, deaf and dumb children).

The daily life of the trainees

A typical volunteer's day begins with breakfast at 8:30 a.m., and workdays run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday to Friday. A coordinator is always present to facilitate exchanges in all our programs. Lunch is taken at home or at the workplace.

In the afternoon or evening, volunteers can take classes, participate in workshops, visit the city and have dinner.

The assignment depends on the skills and profile of the participants. A telephone interview and an application (CV and cover letter) will determine the placement of the volunteers on educational projects ranging from childcare to the organisation of extracurricular activities and tutoring / assistance in schools for those with the most training.

Leisure time activities and recreation

Yoga classes, cooking classes, painting classes, pottery classes, meditation classes, Hindi language classes, Ayurveda classes and Ayurvedic massages, temple visits, excursions, surfing, cycling, trekking, and many other adventures during this course in India!

So if you are looking for an internship in an NGO in India, get involved in this special educator project!
