India – Holi time – volunteering as an English teacher in a school and boys home

Volunteer teaching in India can be a very rewarding and stimulating experience.  Set in the hills surrounding the city of Udaipur in the state of Rajasthan in Northern India, these projects offer an amazing opportunity for immersion into the vibrant Rajasthani community, working with families who live far below the poverty line.

Stay at the Volunteer House, in shared rooms with en suite bathrooms, three home cooked Indian meals daily and a Resources Area where you will prepare your lessons.

The ladies and children fetch water from the pump just outside the village school

Teach in a village primary school every morning, Monday to Friday, for a couple of hours either assisting the teacher or leading and delivering your own lessons or working in pairs.

Village life – making the chapattis

In the afternoons, after preparing your lessons  do the same in a boys home providing after school activities for the boys aged 6 to 12.

Join the Health Programme working with the pre-schools, village school or boys home , or help refurbish schools and the boys home every July/August.

Why India?

Udaipur is known as “the Venice of the East” due to its many lakes and also the old part of the city with its crumbling buildings overlooking the lake. There are many roof terrace restaurants where you can eat and gaze over the beautiful lake.

The old part of Udaipur is well worth a visit, known as “the market” with narrow streets lined by shops where people will invite you in and offer you “chai” , the sweet Indian tea laced with spices that the chaiwallah in the street will bring.  Many of our volunteers invest in a sari and love buying the many items on sale, such as leather bound journals that can be engraved with a name.
