Positive Women Network of Rajasthan
Duration: 2 Weeks
Volunteers can participate in many tasks of the care homes according to their own skills and interests. We are open to new ideas about the tasks volunteers could participate in. For example, if the volunteer knows some special skill, they can teach this skill to the children. Tasks can be divided to the tasks with the children and tasks at the office. Volunteer can have tasks related to both areas or she/he can concentrate on one specific area. Tasks related to administration and communication can be performed remotely. Tasks with children: - Teaching and educational activities: Teach English, computer skills and other school subjects to the children, help with homework and ensure that children complete their next day’s homework, skill training and workshops for children about health, bullying, relationships etc. - Help care takers in the daily chores: For example cleaning, washing clothes, cooking, food distribution and garden maintenance. - General interaction with children: Play with children at the care home, in the garden or nearby park and organize games and other creative activities to the children. - Tasks for social workers and health care professionals (e.g. nurse): health check-ups and workshops about health issues, like female hygiene, first aid training for the children and women residing at the care homes. Social workers are encouraged to do counseling and update the children’s files with more information about their background and their future dreams. Tasks at the office: - Administrational work: Assist to write reports, fundraising by contacting donors and possible partners and organize fundraising campaigns. - Communication: Update websites and social media, create communication materials and photographing.
