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, cow sanctuary, R/O Plant, a temple and a fruit and vegetable garden. Nearest town is Anand and about 2 hours drive from Ahmedabad International Airport. There are currently around 750 students, drawn from 40 surrounding villages. The school caters for children from 2 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 8.55 in the morning to 15:00, 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, snacks. On occasions when we are not busy can provide complementary travel locally to farms, temples, festivals, cultural events and activities in surrounding towns/villages only. 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 rural India. Our volunteer co-ordinator is based in UK and can provide further details. However, if you would prefer to have a chat first over the phone/skype then this can be arranged. This is a free service to ensure we get the right volunteers and also the volunteers receive a personalised 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 five week minimum commitment then a detailed prospectus, list of FAQs and an application form will be sent to you by the volunteer coordinator based in UK.

My name is André . I am retired from the university . Danielle and I bought the old general store of the village (1900) and the small river Eaton runs past our backyard. It's a big place and we are in the process of renovating this three story house. We are very passionate about our project but we are quiet people. We enjoy working but when the weather is to beautiful we jump into our heated swimming pool. We are sauna freak , with the real cold water and also exercising in different ways : yoga , swimming, bicycle. We have a small organic garden that produce some of the vegetables and fruits but we are surrounded by a few organic farms that supplement the rest. We are mostly vegetarian and raw but sometimes we go for the organic meat. Even though we have a conventional kitchen, we have room for the juicer (wheat grass), dehydrator, blender, etc. We love to have a good wine in the weekend but we avoid white sugar in our diet. We don't do drugs or hard liquors. We would definitly prefer non-smoker. Starting may 2015 , we will be have plenty of space for a family of 3 people. Special arrangement can be made at time. We will be happy to discuss with you all the possibilities. Danielle's business is on the ground floor of the house. She's a designer for women clothing. So if you like fashion you could involve yourself with her work. We have cats that we feed in the morning but they don't come inside. We're fans of movies and independant films witch we watch on the Internet, but we don't have TV.
