Volunteer in India Special Needs Care India

Volunteer in India, most children with “special needs” are neglected by society, or turned over to an orphanage. Volunteers with therapy training, or skills working with special needs children are welcome. The orphanage caters to mentally and physically disabled children. The level of illness varies from child to child but all need individual attention to grow and develop as a normal human being and to join the main stream of society.

This is a challenging project and volunteers need to be empathetic and show a lot of compassion. The main task is giving individual attention to kids and to monitor their progress. Other tasks involve helping in physiotherapy, music therapy, vocation training like sewing/tailoring, or simple tasks like feeding the kids who are unable to hold the spoons and food themselves.

*Imp: The transportation in not included to the program. The transportation cost is around US$2 - 4 a day by Tuk-tuk (motorcycle ride) can be divided between 2 - 3 volunteers (8km to 12km  ride).
