We are a non-profit organization located in a rural village in southern India. We started our work in 1993, committed to improving the welfare of society’s most marginalized groups of people.
We operate a farm that helps feed 30 children onsite. Work is needed to help with preparation of soil, sowing, adding manure and fertilizers, irrigation, harvesting and storage of crops as well as help maintaining the general grounds. Our farm has various animals that need rearing, feeding and produce collection. Our children, all affected by disease in one way or another, love dance parties and organized games as well as learning English and computer literacy. We would love for you to do one or all of these activities with them if you wish during your time with us.
These are all projects you can choose from please pick one or two and let us know which in your initial email to us!
We are so excited to have you! Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions we are here to help!
Best wishes from the team.

Pourquoi workaway.info autorise-t-il certains hôtes à faire payer des frais ?
Dans les pays en voie de développement (où la plupart des hôtes sont engagés dans des associations caritatives ou des programmes de développement au service de la communauté locale), certains de nos hôtes peuvent demander aux workawayers de faire un petit don pour aider la famille d'accueil ou l’association (souvent moins de 5 dollars par jour). Workaway n'autorise cette demande de don que si le don va directement à la famille ou à l'association et s'il ne sert qu’à couvrir les frais de séjour des volontaires. (Les annonces où l’hôte demande des frais seront clairement identifiées dans la liste d'annonces).
Nous n'autorisons en aucun cas les annonces d'agences, d’intermédiaires ou de projets qui nous semblent vouloir profiter des volontaires.
