  4. Teach Underprivileged Children, India | Travellers Worldwide

Teaching in India is a sheer joy. The children are enthusiastic, polite and eager to learn! You can teach English or Art and combine this with Science, Drama, Maths, Computer Science, Art & Crafts, and Sports.

This is a completely flexible project; we place you in the most suitable school depending on your specifications and interests.

You'll assist a teacher for up to a week and once you gain confidence and feel comfortable in the classroom, you'll be able to become involved in lesson planning and take classes on your own

* All of our schools are set in and around the small temple town of Madurai. Some schools are very poor and lack facilities, so you'll make a real impact. Nearly all schools have basic facilities.

* You may work in either primary or secondary schools and you'll normally help all age groups. You can teach a variety of subjects, although English is needed the most.

* Your teaching will help the children in so many ways, and they want to learn because they know that the end result will be greater opportunities in life for them, whether career-wise or, for the luckier ones, possibly getting into a better university.

Program Highlights

None of our volunteers want to leave!

You'll make new friends and s for life
