Our place is 70km away from Varanasi (benaras) and we run a school for underprivileged and rural kids.
We would like you to stay with us and tell kids about your country and culture,teach them English.we are friendly and we follow an age old saying 'atithi Devo bhawah' (guests are like God). We have hosted volunteers from France,USA ,italy, Spain,hungry,germany, Czech,canada,portugal,Ukrain and sri lanka and it was an amazing experience for us.
So if you want to know and feel about the real india,you are most welcome here.

You can learn about rural lifestyle of India,villages of India,local language and Hindi,education system of India.my mom can teach you how to cook indian food if you want to.
There are around 400 kids in our school.we would like you to connect with them in any sort of way be it by drawing, painting,sports, teaching English or anything.
the infrastructure of school is not good(most of the kids are underprivilegd hence many parents dont pay the monthly fee at time,many of them dont even pay the monthly tuition fee which is 400rs=5$ for a month) .you can easily help even if English is your second or third language.if you have any other ideas to improve the infrastructure of school,we would love to hear those ideas.
There is no obligation to work.if you don't feel like working someday,you can just relax.
In June,school will open on 21st after the summer vacations.
You will be provided a separate room(air conditioning/desert cooler in summer)with washroom(indian and western both options are available).water purifier is here for clean drinking water. we provide beds, matteresses, pillows and blanket and food(breakfast,lunch and dinner everyday.)
Picture of your room is uploaded here so you can see it.
Please bring xerox copy of your passport and visas along with original. 😊
