Vad ingår?
The Goa Volunteer and Travel program offers opportunities for volunteering in the fields of health care, childcare, teaching, construction and women's empowerment. It is guaranteed to suit anyone wanting to make a contribution to socially deprived areas in Goa while enjoying the beautiful beaches of this famous destination. Despite the apparent benefits of large-scale tourism, Goa remains a stark reminder of many social issues like poor education, inadequate infrastructure and HIV/AIDS that still face the Indian society in general. Combine valuable volunteering with a chance to discover the real India, at a volunteer camp located a short distance from a stunning sandy beach.
The Goa Community Volunteer and Travel program enables you to provide education, care and empowerment to the communities you visit. Working in local schools, volunteers offer much needed support to local teachers, adding to the children’s educational experience by instructing classes while helping to develop students’ positive attitudes about personal hygiene and school attendance. When schools are not in session, volunteers can assist the volunteer organization and the community to run independent classes in English and maths. Volunteers also teach at special schools for mentally challenged children, providing much needed emotional support and teaching educational as well as job related skills. For those volunteers with a professional interest in education, this opportunity offers a chance to improve their skills in a unique environment.

Volunteers may also assist in local childcare centers, known as Aanganbari. Unfortunately, Aanganbaris suffer from underfunding and mismanagement. Volunteers share the workload with regular staff and help bring a level of professionalism, dedication and the community’s attention to these important institutions. In addition to working at the projects, volunteers will have ample opportunity to experience the local cultures and lifestyles as well as plenty of free time to explore the surrounding areas.

Goa - Community Volunteer and Travel

Location

Known as the cultural bridge between the east and the west, Goa is home to a wide variety of ethnic, cultural, religious and linguistic varieties. What was once a former Portuguese colony is now the smallest geographical Indian state, but one of the most diverse and appealing. Goa is particularly famous among foreign travelers for its great climate and fantastic white sandy beaches. The inland, with its plentiful flora and fauna, is internationally recognized as a biodiversity hotspot and compared to the Amazon and Congo basins for its rich tropical diversity. Finally, authentic Indian food and dance, influenced by its wealth of cultural and religious varieties, offer a distinct and enriching cultural experience for any traveler.

Type of work

You can help wherever you are most needed or you can specify which area you are most interested in by talking to your travel advisor. The areas of specialisation which you can choose from in the Goa Volunteer and Travel program are:

Child Care

Holistic development of children is one of the millennium goals of the Indian government, and so is the aim of our volunteering programs. We aim at achieving this by contributing to a child’s cognitive, academic, emotional and social growth. By doing this, the organisation and its volunteers bring about some lasting and sustainable changes in the children's lives. Activities include:

- Assist with mid-day meal
- Songs, rhymes, shape concept - coloring of different shapes
- Teaching English (alphabets) & mathematics etc.
- Games and outdoor games
- Maintaining the growth charts of children
- Following the time table put forth by the centre
- Sensory development teaching

Teaching

Volunteers participate in educational enhancement for students of local communities specifically in the areas of English, math and arts and crafts. In order to encourage more volunteers to participate in this program, we provide detailed workbooks and guidelines for teaching. The volunteers help with the education of the children through creative, interactive teaching methods that make learning enjoyable. Imparting English language skills is extremely beneficial to children’s education and further employment. Volunteers do not need to be professional teachers or have had teaching experience before. Activities include:

- Teaching English, math and social skills
- Games and sports activities
- Teacher motivation and training
- Children attendance tracking
- First aid training and fun/recreation activities
- To create a fun learning atmosphere with the help of games and learning materials

Please note

Any particular activities are available depending on the needs of the project at the time.

How you will make a difference

The volunteer organization was launched in 1999 with the intention to provide tourism and volunteering benefits to international travelers, while supporting various NGOs for social development programs in India.

Over the years, they have become the regional leader in volunteering, travel and cultural exchange, internships and high school exchange programs in India. Your travel program is based on the volunteer and travel combination concept where you are able to volunteer in a needy community while traveling and relaxing at the same time. For almost a century, travelers have always planned their journeys around heritage monuments, beautiful cities, beaches or wildlife. These days, travelers are also keen to interact with the local community and participate in the life of the people thus enriching their travel experience and making it more memorable and rewarding. Since volunteering also brings inner satisfaction and immediate gratification, it enhances the value of your vacation. So, when you come to India, be prepared to volunteer, explore, travel, relax and immerse yourself in the local culture.

How you can help the community

Volunteers participate in educational enhancement for students of local communities specifically in the areas of English, math and creativity enhancement.

- Computer training: Volunteers can make use of the well-tested and developed modules of teaching basic computer skills to enthusiastic local girls and women.
- English classes: Volunteers, with their involvement in teaching English to local women, can help the project achieve a multitude of objectives like empowerment and increasing employability.
- Job skills: Volunteers can engage with a group of young girls and teach them certain vocational skills that might be helpful for them to earn their own living.

There is always an element of care and empowerment evident in our volunteering activities. A variety of areas is covered at this volunteer project which provides a wholesome view of the deprived or weaker segment of the society.

By working with the communities, you make a noticeable difference in the lives of the people you have worked with. Your work with the women and children in the community helps motivate them towards the value of education, build their overall confidence and lead a better and healthy life. Witnessing what kind of impact your, your colleagues' and previous volunteers' work has will give you an overall sense of achievement of making difference in the lives of so many people in need.
