Area: GujaratThe school is a charitably run organization (A registered charity in India, UK and USA), supported through donations and fees from the students. It is situated in the outskirts of a small village called Nar in Gujarat. It is a part of a campus which also has a Care Home for the elderly, Cow Sanctuary, Mineral water Plant, a Temple and a fruit and vegetable garden. There are currently around 750 students, drawn from 40 surrounding villages. The school caters for children from 3 years old in the nursery, through to standard 10 (14/15 years old). The school is expanding rapidly due to its high standard of teaching, learning, innovation and international links as children and teachers are encouraged to work in collaboration with other schools locally and internationally. The school day runs from 07.45 in the morning to 14:00, Monday to Saturday. The academic year runs from June to April, with two terms, June to October and November through to the end of April. The students take exams towards the end of both terms so it is worth planning your visit so that it does not coincide with the exam period. Best time to visit the school as a volunteer is between November and March as the weather is much comfortable. However the school is happy to have volunteers throughout the year except their exams and summer vacation. The nearest airport is Ahmedabad International airport, in Gujarat. The school campus is about 2 hours’ drive from there. All teachers/volunteers/gap year students would be picked up from the airport to ensure a safe journey to the campus. Free facilities provided during your stay as a volunteer is secure accommodation in the campus, meals, Internet access, mineral water, tea/coffee. The nearest city is “Anand” which is about 40 minutes drive. Anand has railway connection to other parts of India should you wish to travel to other parts of India after your volunteering period with us. During your stay in the campus you will feel part of the Indian community experiencing the local cultural and way of life in a very rural India. Our volunteer co-ordinator (who is also a volunteer based in London) can provide you with further details. However, if you would prefer to have a chat first over the phone/Skype to ensure this is the right host for you, or answer any questions you might have which are not covered here, then this can be arranged. Past volunteers have found this very helpful especially if this is your first trip to India. This is a free service to ensure we get the right volunteers and also the volunteers receive a personalized support in preparation for their travel to us. This way expectations are managed well from someone who understands both Eastern and Western cultures. If you are interested in volunteering with us, have the appropriate skills, knowledge, experience and a four week minimum commitment then a detailed list of FAQs and an application form will be sent to you by the volunteer coordinator. Please note that we do check for references from your previous hosts before a volunteer placement is offered to you as we are a school and have set a high standard for our children, teachers, parents and volunteers.
Area: New HampshireI am a single mother of three sons, ages 16, 19, 20. My profession is medicine and I have a small office down the driveway from my primary residence. Ours is a very happy, peaceful home. My children and I travel a great deal and love to learn about different cultures. In fact, my 16 year old won't be home most of this summer because he'll be in Ireland with his Dad. My other two sons will go to Ireland at the end of the summer. We all have great senses of humor and don't take ourselves too seriously, are easy to get along with and friendly. We eat heartily and with good health in mind. Guests will be warmly welcomed, and will have privacy available in their own rooms. I do need to have guests do at least 3 hours a day of work, 5 days per week. Also, we live a quiet life in a rural area, so if you need a lot of entertainment or excitement, we are not the place for you.
