India Childcare Volunteers

Discover the colourful culture of India while volunteering to support underfunded and understaffed day care centres around Jaipur.

Brighten up the lives of young children making a vital and important contribution to their daily lives. Help with the provision of childcare to disadvantaged children as well as participating in a range of exciting activities – with an aim to put a smile on every child.

Alongside local staff, you will play an essential role assisting the children in improving their education levels, providing the attention and care they desperately need and to have fun and play games.

"Volunteering with children in India was the best time of my life! This was my first experience overseas and TMR ensured I was fully prepared. Peeyush and the rest local team were all brilliant and I recommend visiting this amazing country."

Living and volunteering on the outskirts of Jaipur, you will have the opportunity to explore this amazing city located in the heart of the famous Golden Triangle. Walk the crowded streets of Delhi, see the iconic Taj Mahal at sunrise, party on the beaches of Goa or stay closer to home and see Amber Fort and Hawa Mahal Palace.

Despite the recent advances in India over the last decade, the developing country is still plagued with extreme poverty and social discrimination. With many thousands of people still well below the poverty line, many families struggle to provide the care and education to the increasing number of children born.

We urgently need your time and dedication to help develop cognitive, academic, emotional and social skills of children from impoverished families by assisting local educators with their daily activities.

Developing their English vocabulary and ensuring they experience a basic classroom environment sets the groundwork for their future. Not only this, but by providing creative sessions, we are hoping to improve the children’s creative and communication skills.

You will provide support and positive reinforcement to the children. By providing an extra pair of hands, we will be able to focus and give more time to the children that most need it – to ensure they excel in later life.

All of the children are full of energy and enthusiasm and are a lot of fun to be around. They are always excited to meet new volunteers from around the world and your time will make a world of difference to their lives.

One of the main centres we work with is called Kidz Club Academy. The community kindergarten was setup in 2016 with the vision of providing accessible care and education to the children in the surrounding area.

There are currently a total of 123 children (who are no older than 6 years old) that attend every day, with up to 40 children in one class. You will be teaching basic education to the children with subjects like English, maths, science and moral education as well as having fun with drawing and sports.

Situated in Ramnagariya residential area, the school’s expenses currently far outweigh their income. We hope with the volunteer’s assistance we are able to take away some of this burden, with extra free staff and donations from your programme fees.

Volunteering with children in a busy day care centre will ensure that no day is ever the same! You will generally be helping from 8:30am to 1:30pm (slightly later hours in the winter months) Monday to Friday, with a long lunch break in between.

You’ll be able to help with all daily activities, that may include:

- Assisting with informal education, including basic literacy, maths and more
- Organising and managing outdoor recreational games
- Planning and designing creative activities
- Assisting staff with various tasks around the centre
- Providing support and positive reinforcement to the children
- Teaching the children basic life skills and health management

This is a great opportunity for you to truly make a difference while immersing yourself in the multi-faceted Indian culture.
