    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,yoga, meditation or something like that.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,sri lanka,Argentina and Australia and it was such an amazing experience for us.Specially the Italians!!!They are the best ❤️.So if you want to know and feel about the real india,you are most welcome here.we are always looking for active volunteers,so feel free to text us.

    There are around 400 kids in our school.we would like you to connect with them by drawing, painting,teaching English,yoga, meditation, music.
    Do mention in the message how would you contribute here 🙂.
    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) .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.
