Taking part in our Care & Community project in India is a great way to experience firsthand this fascinating country and make a significant impact in other people's lives as well as your own.

Projects Abroad High School Special volunteers teach a class for young children in Jaipur, India.

The project is based in Jaipur. During your time here, you will work either in a local orphanage, school, or centre for street children. Here you will get involved in painting or building work in the mornings and getting the children involved in educational activities and games in the afternoons. Your work will make a valuable and lasting contribution to a placement that would otherwise be unable to afford a new coat of paint or renovation of a room.

You will stay either in a hotel or guest house . Evenings are set aside for cultural or leisure activities organized by our local staff. On the weekend you will get to experience more of the Indian culture by visiting some of the most interesting spots in Northern India including the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra and the captivating pink city of Jaipur.

For those who want to do a longer stay, you can sign up for a 4-week program on select dates. Staying for 4 weeks will allow you to make more of an impact and gain a broader perspective of India. Those joining us on the four week program will also get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
