There are over 18 million orphans living in India. Some children are placed in an orphanage because the family does not have enough money to raise the child. Other children do not have families and find themselves there somehow. Volunteers have an opportunity to not only love and care for the children in any way they can, they also have an opportunity to learn from them.
Volunteers have the opportunity to teach English (up to a few hours per day if desired), play and best of all, be a loving companion. Volunteers can buy the children candy, books, movies, art supplies if desired providing the children a chance to explore their creativity, have fun and learn from you! Volunteers participate in all kinds of activities such as drawing, painting, coloring, singing, playing, jewelry making, teaching the children organization and hygiene skills, and can help the children with their homework! Activities are endless, and the more creative you are, the happier, impacted and grateful these children become.
There are no specific qualifications needed to join Volunteering Love Orphanage Projects in India. However, volunteers are expected to work well with children, possess a deep desire to help and be flexible as working with children can be a challenge! Volunteers find this experience to be one of the most rewarding, even life-changing.
