Teaching, raising environmental awareness and renovating schools in Jaipur, Rajasthan
November 6 - November 19, 2017
Jaipur, the fascinating capital of the marvelous state of Rajasthan, is one of the well-planned cities of its time. The graceful architecture of the City that runs across in pink colour has earned Jaipur the title of "The Pink City". Jaipur is predominantly known for its musicians, artisans and craftsmen. Today, it is flocked by masses for its fine jewelry, varied textiles and sumptuous cuisine. The growth of the city is also contributed by the rapidly developing social infrastructure with super-speciality hospitals and medical centers, institutions of higher learning and schools.
The purpose of the volunteer project is to create awareness on environmental issues affecting this city, to create better learning facilities for school kids, and to provide community service to slum dwellers and poor children.
The project involves teaching basic English to children from poor and marginalized communities in non-formal schools through creative teaching methods like art, music, games, etc. The volunteers will undertake simple renovation work to improve school infrastructure including renovation of a school kitchen, wall painting, making a kitchen garden, etc. The group will hold meetings with the local community to promote health, hygiene, and awareness on environmental issues. Volunteers will also plant trees along with community members.
