In India many families can not afford to give their children English lessons. These children continue on with their education with poor knowledge and understanding of
the English language. Volunteers can make a real difference in the lives of these children.
As a volunteer you will either be teaching English in a government school, a semi-government school or private
school where the class will have an English teacher. If the class has an English teacher you will work as an independent teacher or assist the teacher with the planned
English lessons. Volunteers will also play and organize intelligent/fun games, organize art projects, coloring, water color projects, and participate in and organize
any other extra curricular activities for the children. Volunteers will aid the children with their homework answering and explaining any concepts the children are
Although you do not have to be a teacher to participate in the
Teaching English program, a thorough understanding of the English language is proffered as well as a patient spirit since you will be working mostly with
younger children who will require patience, love and understanding.

Volunteering Love arranges room, board and food (3 meals a day) from the beginning
of your stay to the completion of your project. Volunteers will stay with a host family/hostel with accommodations including a separate bedroom area specified
for volunteers as well as a communal bathroom setting. Volunteering Love employs a local staff near the projects (Delhi,
Faridabad, Gurgaon) allowing a staff member to meet volunteers whenever necessary. Volunteers will have the telephone number to the in-country coordinator
as well should any further assistance be needed.
