  • Description

    Description

    We are a small learning community school near Madurai. We are located on a 10-acre campus in a village 40km from the city of Madurai. We have around 100 children in the age group of 5years to 14 years. We love to have volunteers for sharing their expertise on any trade. We are a open learning community with a democratic setup where adults and kids together decide, do and learn together. The school campus is a space for all of us to do activities you like it and share with kids. The campus is in rural countryside - our campus gives access to open fields, birds to watch and fresh air all the time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We welcome volunteers having a diverse culture and exposure to interact with our kids. You will enjoy and learn from our children with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. You also get to experience a child centric and child learning school, as a model of education. It may change your perception on education and learning compared with structured teacher centric schooling. You also love to see and interact with south Tamilnadu climate, culture and work.

    We like to have volunteers to share the stuff you are passionate about it with kids. We do not expect volunteers to teach - rather share your expertise by doing/creating/showing something. You could share anything that you are passionate about - could be playing drums or carpentering, painting or playing soccer, making robots or android programming, doing theater or exploring maths etc. We expect you to prepare sessions in advance on atleast one topic and share the details with us before coming.
