  • Description


    "The most effective kind of education is that a child should play amongst lovely things" -Plato

    “The best education does not happen at a desk, but rather engaged in everyday living – hands-on, exploring, in active relationship with life.” -Vince Gowman

    If you wish to inculcate the creative learning amongst the kids who are otherwise engaged into begging or other menial/hazardous jobs then this is the right opportunity for you to serve! 🙂

    In the middle of the city there exists a slum consists of socially deprived children. They are enthusiastic kids eager to learn and grow in order to live a meaningful life.

    Volunteers can play a crucial role to mould these kids into better prospects who can overcome all the hurdles in their life and able to find the true meaning of their existence.

    If these kids are taught and guided in a productive manner then they will eventually comes out as a blissful individuals who can live with dignity and peace.

    Volunteers may also help these kids to develop any set of skills or art work which may help them further to earn their livelihood in future!

    We also serves a group of kids suffering with autism. Volunteers are free to help them as well if they wish. The autism center has around 25 kids from age groups between 6 to 16 years old.

    The distance between the volunteer's accommodation and the slum kids area is 6.5 kms and the autism kids center is just 0.5 km.

    The timing for volunteering are flexible, you may either volunteer during morning or during evening, you may choose either to visit slum kids or autism kids center as per your interest or convenience.

    We seek volunteers from different parts of the world to help us in our cause. Feel free to contact us.
