Community Education in India – Gold Residential with Pod Volunteer

Join Pod Volunteer to support local primary schools by creating a fun teaching environment and promote education within the communities of Udaipur.

How can I help?
You will teach alongside the local team at primary schools, creating a fun and interactive teaching environment. By reinforcing the syllabus and boosting their confidence, the project is working towards increasing the number of students progressing to high school. The local team have a range of lesson plans and resources which you can use to design each lesson, making them enjoyable and effective.

In the afternoons you will work together with other volunteers to play games and lead arts and crafts activities at community outreach projects and a disabled school. You can use your skills and experience to plan games, sports, dance, arts and crafts sessions or additional English and maths lessons.

When can I join?
Sunday start dates throughout the year for placements of 2-12 weeks.

Where will I be living?
The project is based on the outskirts of Udaipur, a vibrant city that attracts visitors with its colourful temples and palaces. Volunteers live in a family guesthouse alongside the local team. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. You share a room with up to 3 other volunteers on a single-sex basis.

During your free time, a day can easily be spent exploring the colourful street markets with beautiful Rajasthan jewellery and clothing or arrange weekend trips to some of India’s famous sights and cities including the Taj Mahal or Jodhpur desert safari.

Placement fee
Volunteer placements start from £675 for 2 weeks. This includes accommodation, all main meals, airport pick up and return transfer from Udaipur, Hindi language lessons, 2 day tours of the city and local sights + planning your trip support from the Pod team.
