Internship and Volunteer Program
Working as a development professional/social worker in India can be one of the most unsettling, challenging and yet the most delighting and satisfying experiences of one’s life. While staying here, volunteers are guaranteed to find things that irritate, surprise, confront, and transform them. Many may find themselves questioning, and constantly reevaluating the definitions of "social work", "volunteerism", and "service".
For those who decide to lose themselves in the service of others, India is the most appropriate destination. The number of voluntary organizations in India has grown substantially and India welcomes international volunteers. One remarkable aspect of a volunteer program is that the positive relationship between a volunteer and his/her host organization can catalyze tremendous positive change, in both the organization and the volunteer. However, India can be a place where international volunteers and host organizations can find it quite difficult to relate to one another, for reasons other than language. Volunteering in India can be challenging because of the difference in the culture and that exactly is what makes it a once in a life time adventure.
Recognizing this fact, we launched the Cultural Exchange and Volunteer/Internship programs in Udaipur, Rajasthan with the following objectives:
- Create opportunities for volunteers to work with leading sustainable development organizations, community associates and businesses with an objective to provide a foundation for building a career in development policies and practice
- Provide advance training to people in the area of appropriate technologies; environment; governance; health; human rights; livelihood; micro finance; women empowerment; youth and education
- Support the D.A.A.N. Youth Education Centers with human and financial resources
We have a list of more then 10 different fields in which people can actively participate in the development work which we or our partner organizations are working with. These are all hands-on jobs. Through these programs, you will be helping in orphanages, senior homes, yoga centers, schools for less privileged kids, schools for children with special needs, hospitals and many more places where they are needed.
