Volunteer in India
Education and awareness projects in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, July 20 - August 2, 2020.
Jodhpur is a popular tourist destination featuring many palaces, forts and temples. The city is known as the "Sun City" for the bright sunny weather it enjoys throughout the year. It is also referred to as the "Blue City" due to the indigo tinge of the whitewashed houses around the Mehrangarh Fort. Culture and lifestyle in Jodhpur is quite fascinating. Lending a romantic aura to Jodhpur, are its exquisite handicrafts, folk dances, folk music and the brightly attired people.
The focus of this project is to spread awareness on environmental issues, health and hygiene among children and the community, and to introduce the school children to creative learning methods.
The volunteers will organize meetings and activities with the local community to promote health and hygiene, and raise awareness on environmental issues. They will help the community with tree planting. In the project, the volunteers will also teach basic English to children in non-formal schools through creative teaching methods like art, music, games, etc. The team will help improve the school environment by painting walls, drawing educational murals and creating a kitchen garden. Visits to a traditional Marwari community steeped in ancient traditions and local Indian families for intercultural exchange are some of the highlights of this project.
