Child Care Location: Dharamsala Project Duration: 2 to 12 weeks

The attention and love given in the early years of a child’s life, directly impact the health and happiness of the child. Help us assist in the care of Dharamsala’s children and encourage brighter smiles and futures. Make learning exciting and fun for them from a young age and build inquisitive minds and a thirst for knowledge that will last a lifetime.

Child Care volunteers work in village day care centres alongside local staff. Assist staff in providing a safe environment for preschool children to play and learn. Set up games, sing songs and develop arts activities to enhance social skills and creativity.

Make each day fun and whether you’re teaching ABC’s, nursery rhymes or numbers create a colourful and positive learning environment. Just as energies are running low from a morning of play assist staff in serving nutritious meals to refuel the children, and then, let the fun recommence!


“From the first day until the last trip to Taj Mahal, my experience was perfect. Not knowing what it was going to be like, I could not have expected it to be that good. The staff welcomed me with open hands and hearts. Being surrounded by fascinating people, I felt at home from the first moment. Every day was a new and exciting experience, meeting new and interesting people and seeing rural India. The project managed to find the perfect balance between teaching and helping the Indian community as well as showing you the real and incredible India. I really have to say thank you to all the other volunteers and especially the staff which made my trip so special. I can honestly recommend the project for anyone who wants to volunteer in India.”
