Volunteer In Jaipur
Jaipur is a popular destination for international travelers and volunteers. This popularity, and Jaipur’s easy access to India’s capital city, New Delhi, means that there is a great support network in place for abroad volunteers. Because Jaipur volunteer projects include rural and urban areas, this is a very broad category that includes such projects as teaching English in schools, providing childcare for over-burdened families, working with orphanages, and reaching out to the many street children who must work to survive and thus do not attend school. To be a successful volunteer, you need to be ready and willing to share your enthusiasm, guidance, and love with children.
Requirements & Things to Know
It is especially important for volunteers to read up on cultural practices and expectations before traveling. Volunteers should find themselves comfortable working with orphanage children, street kids, women’s rights, and youth education. The last thing you want to do is to offend the very people you came to help because of poor preparation.
Ask our volunteer placement partner about your housing arrangements: how close will you be to your volunteer site? Will you share the space with others? Will meals be provided? It is recommended that you ask for details about your volunteer work as well: Are there materials that you need to bring with you? Will transportation be provided? Will an average day include?
Volunteers will need vaccinations in order to travel to Jaipur. Volunteers are encouraged to begin their preparations as early as possible, as some vaccines are given in a series and can take some time to complete.
It is important for volunteers to remember that Jaipur is a city of extremes, of great wealth and great poverty. As such, foreigners can often be seen as sources of easy money. Volunteers should be aware of their surroundings, conscious of the attention that they are drawing and keep an eye on their belongings.
As a general rule, volunteers should not travel alone or after dark. Women should never put themselves in a situation where they are the only woman on a street, in a bus, or in a restaurant. Volunteers should avoid contact with stray dogs, monkeys, or other animals on the street.
