- Placement location: Jaipur
- Types of placements: Orphanage or School
- Accommodation: Guest House/Hostel
- Age Requirements: 16-19 years old
Taking part in our Care & Community project in India is a great way to experience firsthand this fascinating country and make a significant difference in other people's lives as well as your own.
The Short-term Specials are based in Jaipur. During your placement, you will work either in a local orphanage, a centre for street children or a school, painting or doing building work in the mornings and getting the children involved in educational activities and games in the afternoons. Your work will make a valuable and lasting contribution to a placement that would otherwise be unable to afford a new coat of paint or renovation of a room.
You will stay in a hotel close to the area where you are working or in guest houses at the placements. Depending on the number of volunteers, you may also stay with a host family. Evenings are set aside for cultural or leisure activities organised by our local staff. During the weekend you will get to experience more of the Indian culture by visiting some of the most interesting spots in Northern India including the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra and the captivating pink city of Jaipur.
Those joining us on the four week programme will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
