Thousands of children in India end up living on city streets struggling to find food or shelter. An uneven proportion of these children are female since India society still struggles with gender inequality and female-foeticide.  Because of this there is an increasing number of abandoned baby girls on streets or orphanages. In Jaipur the orphanage homes we support are female dominated for this reason.  The orphanage homes struggle to provide millions of children with a roof over their head, food, education, healthcare and many more other things to bring them to better level.

Volunteers help the children in different ways:  they became a teacher, a counsellor, a confidant to the kids they work with.  Volunteers have to play a very important role on this project because the children are far from understanding the structure of family and relatives.  Volunteer tasks are to spend quality time with the kids, teach them proper hygiene and health lessons, teaching English and help with reading.  Also chores like cleaning the orphanage, food preparation, and planning fun activities like games and sports ideas are helpful.

*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 (6 to 10km  ride).
