We are still looking for volunteer teachers for schools in Leh, the capital of Ladakh, this summer!
HELP is rare for an organisation offering volunteer teaching in that it puts the needs of the local people before the desires of the western person wanting ‘the experience’.
I think it’s a great organization. I’m really impressed with how small and focused on each project HELP is.
By becoming a HELP volunteer in India or Nepal you will be able to make a direct, personal contribution to the education of young Himalayan people. In so doing, you will be having an unforgettable experience in a new and fascinating world.
I want to let you know that I have looked at a lot of volunteer organizations since I did your program and you have (as far as I can tell) one of the best. I really like how much you personally care about each volunteer and each school.
Volunteering with HELP offers all the good things of working with a small, personal organisation: in-depth local knowledge from the HELP organisers, and the feeling that one is doing something for the first time.
I think HELP is the volunteer organization that I looked for for a long time. It is the most easily accessible and responsive organization I found on the web. I really like the self donation to the school and how independent it requires its volunteers to be, unlike many other organizations.
I came across this link via google search while looking for volunteering opportunities for teaching school children in Jammu and Kashmir.
I am Rohan Arthur, aged 28, currently working as a software engineer in Bangalore. Since I just completed five years of service with my company, I am now eligible for a year-long sabbatical. I want to use this opportunity to volunteer in teaching school children in the valley.
I am still in the stage of planning my savings, but am sure of my intention. It would be of great help at this stage to give me a little information about this particular requirement, and also a rough idea about living conditions and expenses that can be expected. This will help me to plan my programme better.
Thanks and best regards,
I have sent an email in reply to this inquiry.
