You will be supporting the locals in two main ways as follows.

Women’s Shelter:

This project cares for women and young girls. It contains 10 children and 20 women on an average age between 4 to 40 years old. First and foremost, you will participate in building up a hut, the Women’s shelter. You will teach girls / woman English in fun and interesting ways. They also play games to provide both physical exercise and relaxation as some of them have become demoralized and really relish spending time engaged in activities. The cultural exchange and interaction provides girls / women with much needed confidence and exposure.

Poor villages Outreach Program:

Focus on teaching underprivileged children from poor villages around Center, whose parents cannot afford to send to school. The participants will interact with children using games and activities to teach them, and help them understand the importance of academics in developing other skills.
