Way to go Odette!!
Women Empowerment in Jaipur
Volunteers are placed in one of the local NGOs operating in the urban, semi-urban & rural areas of Jaipur. They will be working in the fields of awareness, counseling, and empowerment of females.
Women Empowerment in India: Sustainable Development Perspectives
All the projects provide sustainable development opportunities to girls and women – mothers, grandmothers, and daughters – through education and motivation.
There are regular rallies and marches to help raise awareness among women about their rights & justice. Seminars are organized to raise voices against domestic violence, eve-teasing (cat-calling) & harassment. To serve the purpose of the programs counseling surveys can be done.
Also, there are regular classes to educate these women to make them self-independent. Because of dependence on their husbands and fear for their families, most of the women in India bear violence and harassment. Therefore, becoming self-dependent is the first step to stop all violence and harassment.

Teaching English in India
Volunteers teach English at a CSR (community school) in Jaipur, situated in the southern part of the city.
This school is catering to children from an economically weak & marginalized area, quality English teaching with all other required amenities provided is a great advance for the young students, for instance.
Our in-country partners have supported the school with all the furniture, infrastructure & teaching materials like boards etc. There are around 54 students who are studying from 1st to 5th grades.
Our volunteers teach the students the necessary skills that will help them in developing their interpersonal skills. They also help the local staff in the daily operations of the school.
The top-most requirement of the project is to develop the overall personality of the students by encouraging extracurricular activities, art & craft, group discussions, teaching & communication.
