Under the Childcare Volunteering Program in India, participants work at local daycare centers or “Anganwadis”, as they are locally called, located in and around the region of Palampur, Dharamsala. Since the area is rural, there are not many qualified and well-trained caretakers for the children.

Our volunteers play a significant role in providing children with much-needed attention, love, and care. Volunteers provide one on one attention to each and every child and help in the overall holistic development of the children. Volunteers also help the daycare center staff by helping in daily jobs, such as feeding, cleaning, clothing, teaching and playing games with the children.

Since the inception of the volunteering for childcare in India, we have seen a gradual change and development in the working of the daycare centers in the area of Palampur. Volunteers have played a big role while working for the children towards their welfare and development by lending a helping and caring hand.

The project is suitable for those looking for short term volunteering programs abroad and, also, for those on a gap year, summer placement or interested in volunteering with their family. This project is very much recommended for family volunteering in India wherein the family members can volunteer together. The accommodations are located in close proximity to the projects which would also be convenient for any children joining their parents on their volunteer program. Volunteers are assisted by the local staff and team for any kind of help they need in their work.
