About Program

The volunteer teaching program is run in government schools in rural areas of Jodhpur, Rajasthan, India. The volunteers will work in the schools and organize various enjoyable and creative activities for the children to sharpen their talents and increase their knowledge.

Children who are from underprivileged families struggle with English a lot more and are not confident in their abilities. They also struggle a lot in classrooms as they do not have education reinforced at home as their parents are not educated or able to help them. One of our keys aim is  to build up children’s confidence and English abilities from an early age. Exposure to different teaching styles and resources will also help them to develop skills that go beyond the text book so they can progress faster.
