Jagatpura is an under privileged slum where daily wage labourers, vegetable vendors, rickshaw pullers, balloon sellers and puppet makers live. There is a large number of child labour and kids not going to school since the community does feel the importance of education and residents are generally uneducated, and are either unemployed or work as unskilled labourers. For girls the situation is worst, since they take care of their younger brothers and sisters and stay at home only. Child marriages are also restricting the community to think for a girl’s education. As a volunteer on this project, you’ll be helping to school these underprivileged youngsters and give them a brighter future.

1461843187890

As a volunteer, you’ll get to:

  • Live and work in the culturally rich city of Jaipur in Rajasthan, India
  • Meet and work with people from across the world and learn about a different culture
  • Help ensure the formal education of underprivileged children in one of the city’s poorest slum areas
  • Prepare learning materials and help permanent teaching staff in various schools in the area
  • Visit various schools to advise other teachers on improving education levels among slum children
  • Attend community meetings and organize community visits to reduce drop-out figures and increase school enrolment numbers, especially among girls
  • Organize fun, age-appropriate educational activities, outings and sports for the children

Work & Impacts

Many thousands of people live in Jagatpura, one of Jaipur’s poorest slum and as is the case in many of them in India, it has no electricity or drainage system, nor a community health center or a proper place for children to play.

Residents are generally uneducated and are either unemployed or work as unskilled laborers like rickshaw pullers. Because of the very high illiteracy levels among adults and children, one of the biggest challenges is education. As a volunteer on this project, you’ll be helping to school these underprivileged youngsters and give them a brighter future.

Though there is an educational facility in the slum, attendance numbers are low as many children are sent out by their families to work. Access to basic education is even more limited for girls, who are often forced into arranged marriages or kept home to look after their younger siblings while the parents work.

This project targets children who don’t attend school as well as those who have dropped out, with the aim of enrolling these youngsters in school by motivating parents and encouraging their support. So while the focus is on children, volunteers will work with the entire community to ensure the sustainability of the project.

The project operates out of a small community center set up by an NGO called Saarthak. It is here that community meetings are held to create awareness around the importance of education and to motivate parents to send their children to school.  

The center also provides basic education to children from the slum so that they can enroll in a government school when the time comes. Students are taught basic English and Maths skills, among others, in preparation for further, formal education.

 

Educational support

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT

As a volunteer, you’ll be helping teachers assess the educational needs in local schools and preparing relevant learning materials. You may also be involved in teaching children the basics of English and Maths through the community center. 

Community work

COMMUNITY WORK

You’ll be working in the greater slum community to encourage parents and elders to send their children to school. You’ll be educating largely illiterate people on the importance of education and self-improvement, as well as how this can stop the cycle of poverty.

Childcare and growth

CHILDCARE AND GROWTH

You’ll also be assisting in the planning of fun activities, outings and sports for the children of the slum to help with their personal growth.

Things to do in your spare time

Relax on base

RELAX ON BASE

Your work will be challenging, so take the opportunity to relax on base. Make the most of your down-time by “chilling out” with your fellow volunteers and the long-term project staff or hang out on your own.

A parade of palaces

A PARADE OF PALACES

Once the home of the richest royal family in India, the Pink City is known for its palaces. Among the must-visit sites are The City Palace, Palace of the Winds and Amber Palace, all ornately decorated and boasting a rich history. 

Shop til you drop

SHOP TILL YOU DROP

Jaipur is also incredibly popular as a shopping destination for travelers from across the globe and vendors at its many bustling markets sell a huge variety of goods, from gem stones and jewelry to clothes and pottery. Be prepared to haggle with the market sellers if you want a good deal at bazaars like Gem Palace and Chameliwala Market.

Take a tour

TAKE A TOUR

From guide walks tours to hot-air balloon rides and elephant-back tours, there are plenty of ways to take in the sights and sounds of beautiful Jaipur. Whatever you decide, be prepared for an assault on the senses, especially because of the crowded streets and incredible traffic congestion.

Swim with the monkeys

SWIM WITH THE MONKEYS

Set between two towering cliffs, the Galta Monkey Temple is part of a larger Hindi temple complex with three sacred pools in which you can join people and primates for a bathing session. It also boasts dramatic views over the city of Jaipur, which are especially stunning at sunset.

About the Destination

Located some 300km southwest of Delhi, Jaipur is a major tourist attraction among Indian as well as international travelers. Also called the Pink City because of the color of the buildings in the old walled section of the town, it’s home to famous sites like The Wind Palace, Amber Fort, City Palace and Jantar Mantar.

As a volunteer you’ll be staying at Jaipur Camp, which is situated in the centre part of the city. It is easily accessible to nearby markets, shops, and the rest of the Pink City and the state of Rajasthan.

Transport is provided to and from the base and accommodation is safe and comfortable. It’s usually shared and meals are provided. Free WiFi means you can easily stay in touch with friends and family back home, although the connection can be unstable.

Looking for a challenging but rewarding volunteer experience in the heart of India? Then this project is for you – especially if you want to help uplift the children living in the slums of Jaipur.
