A few hours can be spent in our projects playing with the kids, or longer periods can be given to teaching crafts, English or dance. For those outside India, marketing the Ladli vocational centre’s jewellery or spreading the word about I-India are some other effective ways to help.
Volunteering in Jaipur with I-India is simple. We do not charge any fees, nor do we pay any salary. You would be expected to make your own way to Jaipur and, although we can help arrange your accommodation, we do not pay for it. Volunteers typically work Monday-Friday 10am-5pm, but this is flexible.
I-India has a regular flow of foreign volunteers and is appreciative of any offer of time that benefits the children.
