Volunteer Work In India
IS IT FOR YOU?Volunteering in India is not for the faint hearted (or the squeamish!) but it can be very rewarding. If you are interested then do continue to look through the volunteering section which will give you a good background on the work we do and the requirements for volunteering.
Educators’ Trust India relies on volunteers to help continue the work it does with the children in India. We are always on the look out for volunteer teachers, doctors and other professionals to support the local staff in India. The work that we do includes supporting the running of our schools, working in slum areas, undertaking fund raising, organising events, Administration, accounting, graphic design, project management, teaching nursing, attending our outings and more!
"If you reject the food,
ignore the customs,
fear the religion and avoid the people,
you might better stay home"
James A Michener
Most areas will not require you to have any specific skills or qualifications, just a love of children and an interest in Educators’ Trust India and the work we do. For areas such as teaching and some medical work you will need to show you have experience within these fields.
