Project Background

Our special child care projects are in much need of volunteers to share the responsibility and to work as a teacher, carer, nurse, doctor or mentor. We are working for the development of special children those are mentally, physically disabled from cerebral palsy, autism, ADHD, AHD, down syndrome etc. The center is lacking with the carers, teachers and doctors to take care of them. The children have very different stages of illness so all of them needs individual attention to grow and develop as a normal human being and to join the main stream of society but it is near to impossible to arrange this many staff for the kids and hence the project is suffering. 

We are working in 02 centers in Jaipur for special children care. In one center there are around 300+ and the staff of around 30 full time staff including caretakers, teachers, physiotherapists and others.

In another center we have around 30 special need students having 04 staff. We need volunteers who can help in taking care of the kids and help the management in various aspects of running the centers. In exchange the volunteers can also learn the rehabilitation methods, aqua therapy and other related healthcare from the professionals on these projects. All they need is love and attention.

As a volunteer, your duties are as follows:

  • Assistance to the teacher in the class
  • Helping in feeding the children
  • Helping in walking and changing clothes
  • Motor movements and writing practice
  • Sports and outdoor activities
  • Arts and crafts
  • Music and dance
  • Other duties assigned by the project management

You will be working on the projects from Monday to Friday and weekends are free. On weekends you can visit the numerous heritage sites of Jaipur, such as touring the magnificent city itself, painted entirely in pink! Enjoy famous sites such as the Hawa Mahal (Wind Palace), Jal Mahal (Water Palace), Nahargarh Fort (World`s biggest canon- Jaiban), Amber Palace, and Elephant Village.
