Volunteer in Street children project in India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Kenosis Foundation provides a home to the world’s largest population of children for whom the street, in the widest sense of the word, is both their home and source of livelihood.

Street children in Bangalore urban slums live in a community of around 1000 tent dwellers located at the edge of town where families have relocated from Rajasthan, AP, UP, kerala and Tamilnadu states in the south of India looking for work opportunities. The children rely on fragile strategies for survival with inadequate adult supervision and limited opportunities for education and play. The ‘rag children’ as they are locally known are at risk of exploitation and live hand to mouth each day collecting plastics and metals to sell on for a meager income.

Volunteers make daily visits to the community and assist in providing nutritious meals to a few households at a time and provide basic English language classes to a group of children. You will help the children reclaim their childhood by spending some time playing educational and recreational games; engage in basic English conversation; develop basic learning activities using picture books and storytelling; but most of all show the children you care and bring a smile back to their faces. Currently this work is not offered as a stand-alone project and volunteers will also assist in other areas.
