Sankalp runs a formally owned and operated school for the street children in the needier neighborhoods of Jaipur. Volunteers get the opportunity to help in the school by teaching, inspiring, and supporting these undeserved and underprivileged children.


Why choose Sankalp Volunteer?
Experience: We have more than 10 years of experience running our volunteer program successfully in India.
Flexibility: You can choose your own start date and end date!
Meaningful: You will experience worthwhile and fulfilling volunteer projects serving our local community.
Safety: We have full time staff close by in our volunteer placements.

Why should I pay to Volunteers?
Although volunteering is a great way to give your time, it does come with a cost in order for you to live comfortably while volunteering within our program. Your fees will help cover the cost of paying our staff (driver & cook) along with accommodating you with a safe, comfortable living environment; which include daily amenities, two meals a day, and internet access. A partial sum of your fee will also help our programs continue to run and help the children we serve.

How do I choose a program options?
Make sure you look at the two different kinds of programs we offer - The "Volunteer & Travel" option has set dates throughout the year and it is the most popular option available. Under this option there are four different programs for you to choose from. If none of these options fit your schedule you can do the "Volunteer Only" program which allows you to volunteer anytime for as many weeks as you like would like.

Do I need experiences, special skills to be a volunteer at Sankalp?
No, you don't need any special skills. We are happy to welcome everyone that is enthusiastic and driven to help other people. It's necessary to speak English since it is the language we use to communicate, but it's perfectly fine if English is your second language. You'll also be able to improve your level of English here, as you'll be speaking it constantly.

How it is safe?
At Sankalp we make safety a high priority for each and every volunteer and staff member that join our program. Our program has been running for several years and we have had the great joy in welcoming hundreds of volunteers into our program, please trust that we have extensive experience in caring and protecting all of our volunteers. This includes safety within the house, transportation provided by us, safety at the program locations, and any emergencies that may arise. We do not conduct any program that could in any possible way jeopardize the safety of any volunteer or staff member. We are very proud of our ongoing commitment and provision of safety for all that join our team. In the past 8 years we have had hundreds of volunteers within the age group of 16-65 years of age, with a maximum of 30 volunteers at the house, with no miss-happening to anyone in our program. In order to continue our priority and contract with safety, our organization maintains very set rules and regulations. We ask that you join our program with adherence to the set rules and respect them appropriately for your own and others personal safety.

Program Description

Our organization runs our own school located in the needier neighborhoods of Jaipur. The project is titled “Street Children Education” as the children who attend the school are from the streets. These children are able to receive a free education, materials, and uniforms by attending the school daily. Along with a local Indian teacher, volunteers are able to teach the children basic educational skills such as English, math, reading, and writing; while also offering a structure based day involving etiquette norms and life skills. In between educational lessons, the volunteers can enjoy playing outdoor sports and games with the children, encouraging their physical development. Street children students range in all ages and educational levels; volunteers will be provided materials and orientation based on their assigned class.
