  • Description


    We are a village school in the Indian Himalayas. We are located 1 km away from the little town of Majkhali at the edge of a pine forest.
    We have 120 children between the ages of 3 and 14. Our director Philipp (he is also the only native English speaker, we have a couple of local teachers) is a German American educator, who grew up in India.
    We need volunteers who can speak and write English very well, enjoy the mountains and working with children.
    Volunteers live either in the homes of our staff, or on campus. They eat lunch with us on the campus. Breakfast and dinner can be had at the little restaurants near the school.
    Snacks, toiletries and other such basic needs can also be purchased locally from the shops in Majkhali town.
    We need a minimum commitment of at least 3 weeks with us to achieve results with the kids.
