A propos de l'organisation localeRUCHI is a registered not-for-profit organization committed to environmentally sustainable development since 1983 in the northern Indian State of Himachal Pradesh. It runs humanitarian projects with the financial support from Indian government as well as funding from international sources. It has been involving international volunteers to support these ongoing community development project since 2000. It is a full member of NVDA and CCIVS and a permanent partner of European Alliance.

A propos du travail de volontaireThis is a rural mountain area where the economy of people is purely dependent on agriculture. The area is calm, peaceful and experiences severe winter. However, the small terraced fields do not allow for modern scientific tools and machinery operations. The work involves hard manual work. Consequently he production is low and people are forced to take up odd jobs for their survival. Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely. The green cover in mountains balances the environment and controls the climate in the whole country. The natural resources are depleting; fuel wood is sparingly available now for cooking and heating. It is high time that people think of alternative sources of energy. The project is organized by RUCHI in collaboration with Him Urja of state government and local village groups. The aim of the project is to try out and promote renewable sources of energy. In the first phase, we would like to establish demonstration units at RUCHI and make use of idle solar energy resource. There is ample sun light round the year except for few rainy days during monsoon and winter. We propose to make RUCHI complex totally a solar energy complex in due course. Therefore, we propose to do following under the project during 2019: 1. Establish solar panels for lighting on roofs and roadside and 2. Establish solar water heaters post solar lighting. After successful demonstration of solar energy at RUCHI we propose to promote the technology to rural communities where conventional electricity power is getting unaffordable. The project is expected to have better informed community on environmental concerns and have a greener environment with decreased carbon emission. Volunteers will undertake following activities (1. is the main, changed according to weather): 1. Assisting the work for the solar energy (e.g., Identify ideal site on roadside for putting up solar lights, install solar panels on roofs and streets, monitor power consumption and production patterns). 2. Planting fast growing trees with soil binding capabilities across the roadside and in RUCHI campus. The area is prone to land slide and soil erosions. 3. Tending to fruit trees (Guava, Mango and Amla with onion and ginger) in RUCHI farm. The work may relate to mulching, removing weeds, pruning and preparing organic compost.

A propos du logement sur placeVolunteers will stay in RUCHI campus and share accommodation with another volunteer of the same sex. Cooked food will be served in the community kitchen. All meals will be Indian vegetarian. Bandh village where RUCHI is located is small comprising of say 35 families. It is close to Baddi township - the largest industrial area of the State. Kasauli hill station is also about 20 kms from our office.

Localisation du projetRUCHI Campus. For leisure, one can go to Chandigarh where famous Rock Garden is situated and/or Shimla, the State capital and once he summer capital for British army when they ruled India.

A propos de l'organisation localeRUCHI

A propos du travail de volontaireIndia is committed to digitalization and access to most of the services is available online. Smart mobile phones with internet packs have replaced traditional analogue cellular phones even in the remotest of villages. However, they are mostly used for voice calls and selfies. 90 of the smart phone users have no knowledge of all available features and hence they are not optimally used to increase their working efficiency and overall benefits.The volunteers are required to educate these countryside people on several features and how they can be used to increase their efficiency and make life simple.

A propos du logement sur placeVolunteers will live in the RUCHI campus. All basic amenities will be available with library facilities. English WC will be available. Vegetarian food will be served.

A propos du travail de volontaireIndia has seen tremendous growth in economy since the early 90’s when it opened to the global market. However, with a population estimated at about 1.2 billion, the benefit of such a growth has been marginal. It is estimated that 78 million economically backward people are homeless in India and in Karnataka state alone, it is estimated that more than families are homeless. In urban areas, these populations occupy squatter settlements usually temporary in nature due to unavailability of land. It is also true that the economically backward or weak sections of the population are usually socially backward too. Socially backward refers to those segments of the population who are disadvantaged due to their social background. For example, the tribal communities may be socially disadvantaged because of their isolation from mainstream economy and the social benefits that it may provide to sustain life in the modern world. Their otherwise sustainable lifestyle may have been endangered due to government policies which is unreachable for the tribal groups. Recent evidence indicates that India is heading towards a major sanitation crisis in the coming years. The fastest growing economy seems to have missed out on having adequate toilet facilities for as high as 65% of its population. For example, nearly half of India’s 1.2 billion people have no toilet at home, but more than half of India’s people own a mobile phone, indicates the latest census data According to the census of 2011, 53.1% (63.6% in 2001) of the households in India do not have a toilet, with the percentage being as high as 69.3% (78.1% in 2001) in rural areas and 18.6% (26.3% in 2001) in urban areas Furthermore, field studies indicate that even the use of the existing toilets in both rural and urban areas is very low These facts have also been reconfirmed by another report released on 6th March 2012 by the WHO/UNICEF’s Joint Monitoring Programme on sanitation for the Millennium Development Goals, which has also indicated that 59% (626 million) Indians still do not have access to toilets and practice open defecation and that majority of them live in rural areas We have selected Hunsur town as our area of focus for this workcamp. It is home to tribal communities living mostly at the edge of the reserved forest in the Western Ghats and their livelihood is primarily based on forest produce and partly from agriculture. The literacy level in these communities is very low due to several reasons like poverty, frequent migration, inadequate infrastructure and poor accessibility. The federal and local government has initiated several schemes exclusively for these communities but has failed to achieve the expected results. Still the literacy level has not crossed 30 - 40 % and is even less among women population. FSL-India has been developing projects for m

A propos du logement sur placeAccommodation: In a rented house, with shared rooms. The accommodation will be simple but comfortable and clean, so be prepared to live a simple lifestyle during these five weeks. We expect volunteers to keep the accommodation clean and tidy, during the workcamp. A cleaning team will be appointed every week and the volunteers will be responsible for cleaning the house daily. You are requested to bring a sleeping bag, as there are no cots and you will be sleeping on the floor. We will provide a sleeping mattress, pillow and bed-sheet. There is no availability of internet in the accommodation. The internet cafe is 20 minutes walkable distance from the accommodation. The accommodation is located in a rural village so there will be power cuts in the accommodation. There is no washing machine facility in the house.

Food: South Indian vegetarian food will be provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is no cooking facilities in the accommodation. Filtered water is always available for drinking purposes.

Localisation du projetFree Time: Weekends are free! The volunteers will not work on Saturdays and Sundays. They can plan their free time accordingly. The camp leaders are there to provide you with the necessary information about interesting excursions and trips around the camp site. Incase, we are falling behind schedule with the construction work, you will be required to put in extra hours on Saturdays. Work Camp Info Sheet www.fsl-india.org ‘Global youth for a sustainable future ‘ Please note that on the second weekend (2nd week), our Team Leaders will organize a 2 day sightseeing and cultural trip – the expenses for this 2 day trip will be paid by FSL India.

Localisation du projet

Jodhpur (hindî : जोधपुर) est l'ancienne capitale du Mârvar et la deuxième ville de l'État indien du Rajasthan en nombre d'habitants, après la capitale de l’État, Jaipur, dont elle est distante de 340 km et distance de 560 km de Delhi.

Fondée en 1459 par Rao Jodha (en), chef du clan des Rathore (hindi: राठौड), Jodhpur est communément surnommée la « ville bleue » car la plupart des maisons de la vieille ville sont peintes de cette couleur. Le bleu indiquait que ces maisons appartenaient à des membres de la caste des brahmanes. Le bleu offre aussi l'avantage de protéger de la chaleur et de repousser les moustiques. Jodhpur est aussi appelée « la cité du soleil » en raison de l'exceptionnel ensoleillement dont elle jouit tout au long de l'année. Des entelles circulent quelquefois dans la ville ; ces animaux peuvent se trouver notamment dans un temple dédié à Hanuman.

A propos du travail de volontaireMany NGOs and nonprofits in India are often understaffed and overstretched in terms of human resources. The grassroots organizations in particular, often lack the funds to dedicate personnel for knowledge management.

Yet this knowledge management process is an integral function of any organization. Volunteers interested in this field of work will be involved in: • Designing and creating content for the organization’s offline and online communication platforms. This may include annual reports, brochures, blog articles, website content, social media platforms, press releases among others. • Research, either through primary or secondary data collection, on impact of program implementation, feasibility of program action plans etc., as per the needs of the organization. • Documentation: this may include report writing, putting in place documentation procedures, recording organizational program activities, among others.

For more information, please visit the following websites: http://goindia.about.com/od/visas/tp/Guide-To-Indian-Visa-Types.htm http://www.immihelp.com/nri/indiavisa/categories.html What is needed to be an LTV! We welcome anybody who is interested to participate in our voluntary programs regardless of age, sex, religious belief, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Most of our programmes do not require any specific skills. But as the work is humanitarian in nature, we encourage volunteers to be: Ø Open Minded: It is essential to be open to new ideas, situations, morals, values and ways of doing things. Things may be different from what you are used to or your existing expectations. If you remain open minded then you will be flooded with new opportunities. Broadening the mind is at the heart of inter-cultural exchange. Ø Flexible: Remaining flexible to ideas, people, situations and encounters is important. While working at social projects, you will be dealing with people – and people are unpredictable. Taking a flexible approach is often the best way to deal with such situations. Ø Creative: Taking a creative approach to your volunteer placement and work maintains motivation and, prevents routine and boredom for yourself and the project. When you start to think creatively it is amazing what can be achieved.

A propos de l'organisation locale

Sambhali Trust a été créée en 2007 afin de lutter contre les discriminations de genre, de classe et de caste dont sont victimes aux quotidiens les femmes et filles du Rajasthan. Notre principal objectif est de promouvoir l'estime de soi et l'indépendance économique des jeunes filles et femmes désavantagées dans la société indienne à travers, principalement, des cours d'anglais, d'hindi, de mathématiques et de formations professionnelles en artisanat (couture et broderie).

De plus, Sambhali Trust lutte pour changer les conditions de vie des femmes rajasthani en organisant des groupes d'entraide et de gestion économique, en offrant un accès aux prêts et à la création de petites entreprises. Nous participons également à leur empowerment en leur enseignant leurs droits humains et en leur offrant refuge, consultation et support en cas de violence domestique, de problèmes financiers ou de problèmes médicaux.

- participer à la création de nouveaux modèles et designs pour la boutique Sambhali et les ventes en lignes au côté de l'équipe de couturières et les managers des centres: créer le design, le mettre en application avec un patron puis l'appliquer et voir ensuite s'il se vend dans la boutique.

- Aider à la mise à jour du catalogue des produits de Sambhali

- Travailler sur les coûts de production, le temps de production, etc. Si les connaissances le permettent.

Chaque année, nous fions à l'engagement, la créativité, les compétences et l'esprit d'initiative d'une centaine de volontaires internationaux pour continuellement développer notre organisation et améliorer les conditions de vie des femmes rajasthani.

Localisation du projet

L'Inde est un pays de contrastes et de diversités avec une grande richesse culturelle.

L'hindouisme est la principale religion en Inde (représentant 83% de la population) donc la plupart des coutumes et croyances sont basées sur un point de vue hindou.

En lien avec la religion, un autre aspect important de la société indienne concerne le système des castes qui affecte les relations sociales, politiques et économiques. En effet, la société indienne est divisée en 4 castes principales : Brahms, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas et Sudras. Cependant, il existe également des castes inférieures et externe à ce quatuor : la caste des « intouchables » ou « Dalit » (traduit par « opprimés ») qui représente 15 % de la population indienne souvent reléguée aux activités professionnelles considérées comme impures telles que le nettoyage ou la gestion des déchets.

Si le sud de l'Inde est connu pour être plus libéral et favorable aux femmes, l'Etat du Rajasthan est au contraire encore très conservateur et patriarcal. Le faible taux de scolarisation féminine est directement lié au mariage infantile, interdit par le gouvernement indien, mais toujours pratiqué dans les villages. Il en est de même pour la pratique de la dot qui mène à de nombreuses violences faites aux épouses.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

Durant leur temps libre les volontaires ne peuvent pas s'ennuyer, d'autant plus que Sambhali accueille tous les ans de nombreux stagiaires et bénévoles de diverses nationalités. Il y a donc de nombreuses activités de groupes possibles à Jodhpur et au Rajasthan

A Jodhpur même: visite de la vieille ville et de ses petites maisons bleus, découverte du marché et des échoppes artisanales, découverte de nouveaux restaurants et cafés typiques, visite du Mandore Garden où l'on peut apercevoir des singes en liberté de très près, visite du fort Mehrangarh, visite de White Palace, après-midi détente à la piscine, balade sportive le long du Kaylana lake, etc.

L'Inde étant un pays riche en festivités, les volontaires ont la possibilité d'assister à des festivals religieux colorés et impressionnants (Danses Navrati, Prières aux temples, etc.)

A proximité de Jodhpur:

- Week-end dans le désert de Thar à Jaisalmer: balade à dos de chameaux et nuit dans le désert

- visite d'un village Bishnoi, repas chez l'habitant, découverte de leur artisanat

- visite du village d'Osian dans le désert et de ses anciens temples

- etc.

Les volontaires ont aussi la possibilité de planifier des voyages afin de découvrir l'Etat du Rajasthan (Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Ranakpur, Pushkar,etc.) ou de s'aventurer davantage en Inde (Delhi, Agra, Goa, Kerala,etc.)

La Guesthouse peut fournir une aide pour organiser les excursions et visites, pour réserver des billets de bus, trains ou avions, etc.


Exigences

- Parler anglais (niveau B1)

- Etre proactif

- Aimer le contact avec les gens

- Ne pas avoir peur du choc culturel


Informations supplémentaires sur le projet

Du lundi au vendredi, les volontaires-mode enseignent la couture dans deux centres de couture: elles peuvent apprendre aux femmes et filles de Sambhali de nouveaux modèles. Par exemple: modèle de robe, de sac, de housse pour ordinateur portable, de sac à dos, etc.

Durant les temps libre entre les différents projets, les volontaires sont libres d'organiser leur emploi du temps tel qu'elles le souhaitent. Les samedis et dimanches sont des jours de congés. Cependant, les volontaires doivent être disponibles un dimanche pour tenir la boutique Sambhali pendant une demi-journée.

We welcome anybody who is interested to participate in our voluntary programs regardless of age, sex, religious belief, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Most of our programmes do not require any specific skills. But as the work is humanitarian in nature, we encourage volunteers to be: Ø Open Minded: It is essential to be open to new ideas, situations, morals, values and ways of doing things. Things may be different from what you are used to or your existing expectations. If you remain open minded then you will be flooded with new opportunities. Broadening the mind is at the heart of inter-cultural exchange. Ø Flexible: Remaining flexible to ideas, people, situations and encounters is important. While working at social projects, you will be dealing with people – and people are unpredictable. Taking a flexible approach is often the best way to deal with such situations. Ø Creative: Taking a creative approach to your volunteer placement and work maintains motivation and, prevents routine and boredom for yourself and the project. When you start to think creatively it is amazing what can be achieved.

Broadening the mind is at the heart of inter-cultural exchange. Ø Flexible: Remaining flexible to ideas, people, situations and encounters is important. While working at social projects, you will be dealing with people – and people are unpredictable. Taking a flexible approach is often the best way to deal with such situations. Ø Creative: Taking a creative approach to your volunteer placement and work maintains motivation and, prevents routine and boredom for yourself and the project. When you start to think creatively it is amazing what can be achieved.

A propos de l'organisation localeRUCHI is a registered not-for-profit organization committed to environmentally sustainable development since 1983 in the northern Indian State of Himachal Pradesh. It runs humanitarian projects with the financial support from Indian government as well as funding from international sources. It has been involving international volunteers to support these ongoing community development project since 2000. It is a full member of NVDA and CCIVS and a permanent partner of European Alliance.

A propos du travail de volontaireThis is a rural mountain area where the economy of people is purely dependent on agriculture. The area is calm, peaceful and experiences severe winter. However, the small terraced fields do not allow for modern scientific tools and machinery operations. The work involves hard manual work. Consequently he production is low and people are forced to take up odd jobs for their survival. Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely. The green cover in mountains balances the environment and controls the climate in the whole country. The natural resources are depleting; fuel wood is sparingly available now for cooking and heating. It is high time that people think of alternative sources of energy. The project is organized by RUCHI in collaboration with Him Urja of state government and local village groups. The aim of the project is to try out and promote renewable sources of energy. In the first phase, we would like to establish demonstration units at RUCHI and make use of idle solar energy resource. There is ample sun light round the year except for few rainy days during monsoon and winter. We propose to make RUCHI complex totally a solar energy complex in due course. Therefore, we propose to do following under the project during 2019: 1. Establish solar panels for lighting on roofs and roadside and 2. Establish solar water heaters post solar lighting. After successful demonstration of solar energy at RUCHI we propose to promote the technology to rural communities where conventional electricity power is getting unaffordable. The project is expected to have better informed community on environmental concerns and have a greener environment with decreased carbon emission. Volunteers will undertake following activities (1. is the main, changed according to weather): 1. Assisting the work for the solar energy (e.g., Identify ideal site on roadside for putting up solar lights, install solar panels on roofs and streets, monitor power consumption and production patterns). 2. Planting fast growing trees with soil binding capabilities across the roadside and in RUCHI campus. The area is prone to land slide and soil erosions. 3. Tending to fruit trees (Guava, Mango and Amla with onion and ginger) in RUCHI farm. The work may relate to mulching, removing weeds, pruning and preparing organic compost.

A propos du logement sur placeVolunteers will stay in RUCHI campus and share accommodation with another volunteer of the same sex. Cooked food will be served in the community kitchen. All meals will be Indian vegetarian. Bandh village where RUCHI is located is small comprising of say 35 families. It is close to Baddi township - the largest industrial area of the State. Kasauli hill station is also about 20 kms from our office.

Localisation du projetRUCHI Campus. For leisure, one can go to Chandigarh where famous Rock Garden is situated and/or Shimla, the State capital and once he summer capital for British army when they ruled India.

Localisation du projetIn the interior rural areas, education of children in expensive private schools is unaffordable by local communities. Consequently, they send their children to government schools. However, the attitudes of teachers there is a little indifferent and not very pro-active. To meet peopleaeuros demand for better education some committed teachers have started less expensive private schools in rural areas. Baddi slums and Bogdhar village have one such school in each community. The school enrolls children from economically poor families from the slums or rural areas. The focus of education here is on social aspects. During leisure time, the volunteers may like to visit Chandigarh for its Rock Garden, Shimla town (once the summer capital of British Army) or Renuka Lake.

Surprisingly after supporting her family in various ways she is mostly not consulted and involved in household decision making.

Keeping that in mind RUCHI has initiated voluntary project facilitating cultural exposure and assisting women to overcome these odds. This project aims to empower women by helping them to gain confidence, demand their rights and most importantly start being an earning member of family.Based in rural environment volunteers will be familiarised with local culture.

FSL-India travaille en collaboration avec des organisations locales qui oeuvrent pour la conservation et la promotion des ressources en eaux de nombreuses manières. Le concept mis en place est « prenez l’eau où elle tombe. » Sensibiliser différentes parties des communautés locales est un axe important de la démarche de FSL. Les volontaires peuvent contribuer à ces initiatives en ajoutant un apport créatif et en participant aux campagnes de promotion des connaissances sur l’eau, aux campagnes de documentation et aux recherches mises en place.

Localisation du projetIn the interior rural areas, education of children in expensive private schools is unaffordable by local communities. Consequently, they send their children to government schools. However, the attitudes of teachers there is a little indifferent and not very pro-active. To meet peopleaeuros demand for better education some committed teachers have started less expensive private schools in rural areas. Baddi slums and Bogdhar village have one such school in each community. The school enrolls children from economically poor families from the slums or rural areas. The focus of education here is on social aspects. During leisure time, the volunteers may like to visit Chandigarh for its Rock Garden, Shimla town (once the summer capital of British Army) or Renuka Lake.

A propos de l'organisation locale

Sambhali Trust a été créée en 2007 afin de lutter contre les discriminations de genre, de classe et de caste dont sont victimes aux quotidiens les femmes et filles du Rajasthan. Notre principal objectif est de promouvoir l'estime de soi et l'indépendance économique des jeunes filles et femmes désavantagées dans la société indienne à travers, principalement, des cours d'anglais, d'hindi, de mathématiques et de formations professionnelles en artisanat (couture et broderie).

De plus, Sambhali Trust lutte pour changer les conditions de vie des femmes rajasthani en organisant des groupes d'entraide et de gestion économique, en offrant un accès aux prêts et à la création de petites entreprises. Nous participons également à leur empowerment en leur enseignant leurs droits humains et en leur offrant refuge, consultation et support en cas de violence domestique, de problèmes financiers ou de problèmes médicaux.

A propos du travail de volontaire

Les volontaires de l'équipe administrative peuvent réaliser différentes tâches selon leur compétences. Il s'agit dans la plupart des cas d'établir des relations entre Sambhali et un ou plusieurs pays francophones.

Par exemple:

- Trouver des financements en France ou dans des pays francophones pour nos projets

- Organiser les relations institutionnelles avec la France (Ambassade, Ministère des Affaires Etrangères, Alliances Françaises…)

- Rechercher de nouveaux distributeurs francophones pour la boutique de Sambhali / être l'intermédiaire dans notre relation entre le distributeur français et Sambhali

- Etre "volontaire coordinateur": assister le manager de l'association dans son travail quotidien et être l'intermédiaire entre celui-ci et les autres bénévoles

- Gérer la communication de l'organisation sur les réseaux sociaux



Le volontaire peut également donner des cours d'anglais et/ou de maths aux femmes et filles indiennes dans un des différents centres.

Du lundi au vendredi, les volontaires-administratifs peuvent enseigner dans un centre d'empowerment le matin ou l'après-midi et s'occuper du travail administratif l'autre partie de la journée.

Exemple de journée type: selon les différents centres les horaires de travail sont légèrement différents.

- 8h-10h: petit déjeuner

- 10h15 - 13h30: "Brothers for Sisters": enseigner les maths et/ou l'anglais

- Temps libre

- 13h: déjeuner

- Après-midi: travail administratif

- Temps libre

- 19h: Repas du soir

- Temps libre

Durant les temps libre entre les différents projets, les volontaires sont libres d'organiser leur emploi du temps tel qu'ils le souhaitent: préparer les leçons de la semaine, les tests, les ateliers, visiter la ville, faire les magasins, etc.

En ce qui concerne les cours, les lundi, mardis, jeudis et vendredis sont consacrés aux leçons d'anglais et de mathématiques. Les mercredis sont consacrés à des ateliers informatifs: les sujets varient et les volontaires sont libres de créer leur propre atelier selon leurs connaissances et préférences.

Localisation du projet

L'Inde est un pays de contrastes et de diversités avec une grande richesse culturelle.

L'hindouisme est la principale religion en Inde (représentant 83% de la population) donc la plupart des coutumes et croyances sont basées sur un point de vue hindou.

En lien avec la religion, un autre aspect important de la société indienne concerne le système des castes qui affecte les relations sociales, politiques et économiques. En effet, la société indienne est divisée en 4 castes principales : Brahms, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas et Sudras. Cependant, il existe également des castes inférieures et externe à ce quatuor : la caste des « intouchables » ou « Dalit » (traduit par « opprimés ») qui représente 15 % de la population indienne souvent reléguée aux activités professionnelles considérées comme impures telles que le nettoyage ou la gestion des déchets.

Si le sud de l'Inde est connu pour être plus libéral et favorable aux femmes, l'Etat du Rajasthan est au contraire encore très conservateur et patriarcal. Le faible taux de scolarisation féminine est directement lié au mariage infantile, interdit par le gouvernement indien, mais toujours pratiqué dans les villages. Il en est de même pour la pratique de la dot qui mène à de nombreuses violences faites aux épouses.


A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

tous les ans de nombreux stagiaires et bénévoles de diverses nationalités. Il y a donc de nombreuses activités de groupes possibles à Jodhpur et au Rajasthan

A Jodhpur même: visite de la vieille ville et de ses petites maisons bleus, découverte du marché et des échoppes artisanales, découverte de nouveaux restaurants et cafés typiques, visite du Mandore Garden où l'on peut apercevoir des singes en liberté de très près, visite du fort Mehrangarh, visite de White Palace, après-midi détente à la piscine, balade sportive le long du Kaylana lake, etc.

L'Inde étant un pays riche en festivités, les volontaires ont la possibilité d'assister à des festivals religieux colorés et impressionnants (Danses Navrati, Prières aux temples, etc.)

A proximité de Jodhpur:

- Week-end dans le désert de Thar à Jaisalmer: balade à dos de chameaux et nuit dans le désert

- visite d'un village Bishnoi, repas chez l'habitant, découverte de leur artisanat

- visite du village d'Osian dans le désert et de ses anciens temples

- etc.

Les volontaires ont aussi la possibilité de planifier des voyages afin de découvrir l'Etat du Rajasthan (Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Ranakpur, Pushkar,etc.) ou de s'aventurer davantage en Inde (Delhi, Agra, Goa, Kerala,etc.)

La Guesthouse peut fournir une aide pour organiser les excursions et visites, pour réserver des billets de bus, trains ou avions, etc.

Thereby, reducing boundaries and bringing people to work together in harmony by understanding the Inter-cultural aspects focusing towards development of people and society through youth mobility and volunteerism. Founded in the year 2000 and legally incorporated in 2001, FSL-India is a Trust under Indian Trust Act 1882.

A propos du travail de volontaireThere are several ethnic minorities in India who faces several issues like lack of proper education, infrastructure and medical facilities along with isolation due to the inferior nature of living, illiteracy of parents and lack of livelihood development. Various NGOs are working towards community development of these ethnic tribes with a prime objective of preparing them to participate and compete within the mainstream society. Working in this field requires a high degree of flexibility, and volunteers should try and get involved with the local community and with the staff of the project. These projects with the tribal communities are located in rural and remote areas, near to or within the communities and since you will be working with them, therefore it is important that you are prepared for bare minimum and simple living conditions. Strong language barrier could also pose a greater challenge for anyone working in this field. Most of the development work carried out by NGOs is aimed at community development through education, awareness, livelihood promotion and health improvement. Volunteers will be required to teach in most of the projects where they will work with tribal children. Therefore an interest in teaching and love for children is crucial. However, you could also be supporting the staff in the daily activities of the centre, whilst the children are away attending Regular schools. A creative approach to work is useful and you will have the opportunity to initiate new mini projects or activities. You will have to be prepared for a flexible approach to the work and be willing to undertake a variety of tasks. If you have many ideas of teaching different kinds of activities such as games, songs, arts and crafts or sports and athletics to children, then this type of project is for you! The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

A propos du logement sur placeYou could be staying with local families near to the project. You could be sharing rooms with 2-3 volunteers or staying on your own. Sometimes, projects provide accommodation for the volunteers. The project will provide a room that is shared by other volunteers or with the staff of the project.

Localisation du projetOur projects are spread out across different regions in South India. Your project location could be in any one of the following locations - Bangalore, Mysore, Chennai, Kundapur, Udupi, Mangalore, North Karnataka or Pondicherry. You will be notified of the location of your project a month prior to your arrival. During the Orientation week, one can find out the leisure activities around your area. There are lots of things to do in south of India.

ExigencesThe Participation Fee is 15,500 Indian Rupees for each month (approximately 238 Euros per month, depending on the exchange rate)

Informations supplémentaires sur le projetVisa Requirements: According to the new Visa Regulations, volunteers coming to India to do voluntary service with/through a registered Indian organization need to apply for an “Employment Visa” ( to work with NGO / Non-Profit organization). No other visa is acceptable. In order to apply for an Employment visa, you’ll need proof of employment with an organization in India, such as a contract that states the terms and conditions.

We welcome anybody who is interested to participate in our voluntary programs regardless of age, sex, religious belief, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Most of our programmes do not require any specific skills. But as the work is humanitarian in nature, we encourage volunteers to be: Ø Open Minded: It is essential to be open to new ideas, situations, morals, values and ways of doing things. Things may be different from what you are used to or your existing expectations. If you remain open minded then you will be flooded with new opportunities. Broadening the mind is at the heart of inter-cultural exchange. Ø Flexible: Remaining flexible to ideas, people, situations and encounters is important. While working at social projects, you will be dealing with people – and people are unpredictable. Taking a flexible approach is often the best way to deal with such situations.

A propos de l'organisation localeRUCHI is a not-for-profit organisation committed to community development since 1983.

A propos du travail de volontaireSanitation is a big problem in rural as well as urban slums in this mountainous area where there is no effective disposal system in practice. This affects their health and production capacity. The volunteers will help to educate and create awareness involving youth and rural people on water, sanitation, hygiene and health standards(WASH). The volunteers will have to be innovative so that they can design and use their own tools in consultation with RUCHI team with regard to their appropriateness and local needs. This project will help Volunteers to work with villagers to initiate waste management through our Waste Force Campaign. Volunteers will be part of a cleanliness drive where they will visit schools and villages to conduct a cleanliness campaign. During this drive, volunteers can inform students, youth, women and villagers about the importance of segregation of waste, reducing use of plastic and proper disposal of waste. Volunteers can use creative mediums like charts, slogans, posters, banners, t-shirts, quotes, videos, films, photographs and discussions to educate villagers about different methods of waste management.

A propos du logement sur placeThis will be simple and shared accommodation. All volunteers will be staying in RUCHI complex accommodation with basic amenities. We shall provide mattresses but the volunteers are required to bring their own bed sheets, sleeping bags and personal toiletries.Food offered will be simple authentic Indian vegetarian and freshly cooked. Three meals a day will be served. Assistance while cooking is desired of volunteers. Volunteers are free to cook meals of their country choice on every Sunday.

Localisation du projetThe slums around Baddi township have influenced sanitary conditions in the communities. In rural India open defecation is still prevalent. Even though the State Government has made it mandatory to build private toilets, the people are indifferent and unaware of the demerits and adverse impact on their health. Garbage disposal is another serious problem and adversely impacts environment and their health. A movement through education and campaigning on WASH needs to be built up. The project area will be 10 mountain villages around RUCHI office in Solan district, northern India.Leisure time opportunities offer visit to Rock Garden of international fame in Chandigarh and Shimla Hills.

ExigencesVolunteers with interest in sanitation and waste disposal are welcome.

A propos du travail de volontaireA sustainable future for the planet can only be achieved if both animals and people are part of the solution. However, it is not at all uncommon to see animals - domestic, stray or wild often exploited and taken for granted. It is a forgotten fact that even they need food and water. Conservation and management of animals have a significant bearing on the survival of every species by helping in promotion of rational use of environment to provide a high quality of living for mankind. Animal care and conservation envisages not only the protection of the existing populations of animals and their habitats, but also the breeding and farming of rare animals. As a volunteer you will be assigned to work with organisations involved in the field of impacting political and economic climate, habitat protection, breeding and farming, special wildlife projects, legislative measures, nurse ailing and injured animals. The major activities that you may be assigned are: • Providing treatment and taking care of the Animals. • Conducting surveys, documentation, • Policy advocacy, designing appropriate IEC (Information, Education and Communication) • Materials, community awareness and education.

A propos du travail de volontaireBridging the chasm of India’s wide gender gap is increasingly gaining importance in the country’s developmental strategies, with a greater number of NGOs and government organizations putting women at the centre of their projects. A key component of many of these strategies is building the capacity of women in financial self-management which will enable the creation of an environment where women can make independent decisions on their personal development as well as shine as equals in society. In recent years, the government has extensively promoted the formation of Self Help Groups or SHGs as platforms to enable micro-credit options for the economically disadvantaged. Comprised primarily of women, an SHG is, in essence, a credit and savings group: each member regularly contributes a fixed, small amount of money until enough capital is built within the SHG to begin lending. The group then collectively decides which members should be lent money, based on the needs of each member. Repayment, at a predetermined interest rate, is ensured through peer pressure. Through the years, SHGs have evolved into more than just community-driven institutions of micro-credit; they have also been crucial to mobilizing women’s empowerment activities at the grassroots level. Volunteers will work extensively with SHGs and other women’s groups to implement capacity building initiatives in their communities. Some of the activities they will be involved in include: • Teaching English • Building capacity in computer literacy • Raising awareness on health and hygiene • Promoting entrepreneurial initiatives and income generation activities that increase family income • Building the financial capacity of SHGs to actively manage their group, increase capital and • Fund entrepreneurial projects of their women members The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

A propos de l'organisation localeFSL-India est un organisme de développement de la jeunesse qui se concentre sur l’apprentissage interculturel à travers les services volontaires afin de promouvoir une meilleure entente mondiale. Nous donnons aux jeunes l’opportunité de travailler dans divers contextes sociaux et d’accorder une plus grande valeur à l’apprentissage interculturel. Nous cherchons donc à réduire les frontières et à amener les gens à travailler ensemble dans l’harmonie grâce à une meilleure compréhension interculturelle. Nous concentrons notre action sur le développement des personnes et de la société à travers la mobilité des jeunes et le volontariat. FSL-India a son siège social à Bangalore et a des bureaux régionaux à Karnataka (Bangalore, Mysore et Kundapur), Tamil Nadu (Chennai) et Pondicherry. Nous avons des associés expérimentés qui soutiennent nos activités de développement à travers le pays et nous recevons le support de nos partenaires locaux et régionaux. FSL-India mobilise annuellement plus de 1500 jeunes du monde entier avec le soutien de partenaires internationaux et d’ONG locales.

A propos du travail de volontaireOn estime qu’il y a plus de 400 000 enfants des rues en Inde. FSL-India, comme de nombreuses autres ONG et initiatives locales, oeuvre pour le bien-être de ces enfants qui doivent travailler pour survivre. Notre objectif est d’aider ces enfants à quitter les rues et leur lieu de travail afin de leur donner la chance d’une vie décente et de nouveaux standards de vie. Nous cherchons à placer les enfants dans des centres, des internats et des foyers d’accueil de jour afin de les aider à réintégrer le système scolaire où ils reçoivent une éducation professionnelle et un entraînement qui leur permettra de trouver un emploi décent et d’éviter l’exploitation. Une grande partie du travail de développement de ces projets est basée sur l’éducation dite alternative. Pour cela, nous demandons aux volontaires de partager leurs connaissances avec les enfants des rues. Il est donc nécessaire de porter un intérêt à l’éducation et aux enfants pour participer. Vous pourrez également soutenir les membres de l’équipe lors des activités des écoles. Nous recherchons des personnes capables de se montrer créatives. Vous aurez l’occasion de mettre des projets et des activités en place. Dans certains cas, nous pouvons demander aux volontaires de se rendre au sein de la « communauté des tentes », parmi des familles de laboureurs migrants, afin de les sensibiliser à nos programmes éducatifs et d’inciter les parents à inscrire leurs enfants à l’école. Si vous avez des idées de nouvelles activités, de jeux, de chants, de bricolages ou de sports à mener avec les enfants, ce projet est fait pour vous ! La durée minimale de ce projet est de trois ou six mois.

A propos du logement sur placeVous pourrez loger auprès de familles vivant près du site du projet, partager une chambre avec deux ou trois autres volontaires ou vivre seul.

Localisation du projetNos projets ont lieu dans différentes régions du sud de l’Inde. Ce projet peut avoir lieu à Bangalore, à Mysore, à Chennai, à Kundapur, à Udupi, à Mangalore, au Nord du Karnataka ou à Pondicherry. Nous vous communiquerons l’endroit exact de votre projet un mois avant votre arrivée. Vous pourrez découvrir les activités de loisir de la région durant votre semaine d’orientation. Il y a beaucoup de choses à faire au Sud de l’Inde.

Informations supplémentaires sur le projetLes frais de participations s’élèvent à 14 500 roupies indiennes par mois (environ 220€, en fonction du taux d’échange.)

A propos de l'organisation localeOur local partner (FSL)  is a youth development organisation focused towards Inter-cultural Learning through Voluntary Services set up to promote Global Understanding by providing opportunities to the youth to work in different cultural contexts to appreciate Inter-cultural learning. Thereby, reducing boundaries and bringing people to work together in harmony by understanding the Inter-cultural aspects focusing towards development of people and society through youth mobility and volunteerism.

Annually, FSL- India mobilizes movement of 1500 and more youths from across the globe with the support of International Partners and local NGOs.

A propos du travail de volontaireIndian society is characterized by discrimination, deprivation, exploitation, subjugation and marginalization, particularly on the basis of caste and ethnicity. The Scheduled Tribes (STs) in India suffer from exclusion, neglect and underdevelopment due to their geographical and cultural isolation and separation from the mainstream. The greatest challenge that India has been facing since independence is the proper provision of social justice to the scheduled tribe people, by ameliorating their socio-economic conditions. Scheduled Tribes, Scheduled Castes and de-notified tribes constitute the weakest section of India's population, from the ecological, economic and educational angles. They constitute the matrix of India's poverty. As a volunteer in this field of work not only will you gain in terms of experience but you will also have rich inter-cultural exposure with tribal community. Your work as a volunteer will comprise of – • With ethnic tribal community in partnership with community based organisations that are trying to mainstream the tribal community. Healthcare, education, livelihoods, skills training, and promotion of tribal rights will be the development intervention strategy. • Conduct community awareness on various development issues of ethnic tribal community, conduct training and capacity building, network with organisations working with similar vision. • Participate in advocacy and campaign, conduct surveys, carry out documentations, and design project proposals for ethnic tribal development. The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities. Note: Limited projects are available, and most require a minimum application of 2 months.

A propos du logement sur placeYou could be staying with local families near to the project. You could be sharing rooms with 2-3 volunteers or staying on your own. Sometimes, projects provide accommodation for the volunteers. The project will provide a room that is shared by other volunteers or with the staff of the project.

A propos de l'organisation localeRUCHI is a registered not-for-profit organization committed to environmentally sustainable development since 1983 in the northern Indian State of Himachal Pradesh. It runs humanitarian projects with the financial support from Indian government as well as funding from international sources. It has been involving international volunteers to support these ongoing community development project since 2000. It is a full member of NVDA and CCIVS and a permanent partner of European Alliance.

A propos du travail de volontaireThis is a rural mountain area where the economy of people is purely dependent on agriculture. The area is calm, peaceful and experiences severe winter. However, the small terraced fields do not allow for modern scientific tools and machinery operations. The work involves hard manual work. Consequently he production is low and people are forced to take up odd jobs for their survival. Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely. The green cover in mountains balances the environment and controls the climate in the whole country. The natural resources are depleting; fuel wood is sparingly available now for cooking and heating. It is high time that people think of alternative sources of energy. The project is organized by RUCHI in collaboration with Him Urja of state government and local village groups. The aim of the project is to try out and promote renewable sources of energy. In the first phase, we would like to establish demonstration units at RUCHI and make use of idle solar energy resource. There is ample sun light round the year except for few rainy days during monsoon and winter. We propose to make RUCHI complex totally a solar energy complex in due course. Therefore, we propose to do following under the project during 2019: 1. Establish solar panels for lighting on roofs and roadside and 2. Establish solar water heaters post solar lighting. After successful demonstration of solar energy at RUCHI we propose to promote the technology to rural communities where conventional electricity power is getting unaffordable. The project is expected to have better informed community on environmental concerns and have a greener environment with decreased carbon emission. Volunteers will undertake following activities (1. is the main, changed according to weather): 1. Assisting the work for the solar energy (e.g., Identify ideal site on roadside for putting up solar lights, install solar panels on roofs and streets, monitor power consumption and production patterns). 2. Planting fast growing trees with soil binding capabilities across the roadside and in RUCHI campus. The area is prone to land slide and soil erosions. 3. Tending to fruit trees (Guava, Mango and Amla with onion and ginger) in RUCHI farm. The work may relate to mulching, removing weeds, pruning and preparing organic compost.

A propos du logement sur placeVolunteers will stay in RUCHI campus and share accommodation with another volunteer of the same sex. Cooked food will be served in the community kitchen. All meals will be Indian vegetarian. Bandh village where RUCHI is located is small comprising of say 35 families. It is close to Baddi township - the largest industrial area of the State. Kasauli hill station is also about 20 kms from our office.

A propos de l'organisation localeRUCHI is a registered not-for-profit organization committed to environmentally sustainable development since 1983 in the northern Indian State of Himachal Pradesh. It runs humanitarian projects with the financial support from Indian government as well as funding from international sources. It has been involving international volunteers to support these ongoing community development project since 2000. It is a full member of NVDA and CCIVS and a permanent partner of European Alliance.

A propos du travail de volontaireThis is a rural mountain area where the economy of people is purely dependent on agriculture. The area is calm, peaceful and experiences severe winter. However, the small terraced fields do not allow for modern scientific tools and machinery operations. The work involves hard manual work. Consequently he production is low and people are forced to take up odd jobs for their survival. Changes in climatic conditions affect their farming and living conditions adversely. The green cover in mountains balances the environment and controls the climate in the whole country. The natural resources are depleting; fuel wood is sparingly available now for cooking and heating. It is high time that people think of alternative sources of energy. The project is organized by RUCHI in collaboration with Him Urja of state government and local village groups. The aim of the project is to try out and promote renewable sources of energy. In the first phase, we would like to establish demonstration units at RUCHI and make use of idle solar energy resource. There is ample sun light round the year except for few rainy days during monsoon and winter. We propose to make RUCHI complex totally a solar energy complex in due course. Therefore, we propose to do following under the project during 2019: 1. Establish solar panels for lighting on roofs and roadside and 2. Establish solar water heaters post solar lighting. After successful demonstration of solar energy at RUCHI we propose to promote the technology to rural communities where conventional electricity power is getting unaffordable. The project is expected to have better informed community on environmental concerns and have a greener environment with decreased carbon emission. Volunteers will undertake following activities (1. is the main, changed according to weather): 1. Assisting the work for the solar energy (e.g., Identify ideal site on roadside for putting up solar lights, install solar panels on roofs and streets, monitor power consumption and production patterns). 2. Planting fast growing trees with soil binding capabilities across the roadside and in RUCHI campus. The area is prone to land slide and soil erosions. 3. Tending to fruit trees (Guava, Mango and Amla with onion and ginger) in RUCHI farm. The work may relate to mulching, removing weeds, pruning and preparing organic compost.

A propos de l'organisation locale

La fondation Jyothirgamaya est association sans but lucratif pour l’amélioration des conditions de vie des malvoyants. « Nous sommes les yeux des personnes malvoyantes. » Notre objectif est de rendre accessibles tous les domaines de la vie aux personnes malvoyantes. L’association dépend de la fondation caritative Jyothirgamaya.


Selon l’enquête de 2001 de la Fédération pour les malvoyants de Kerala, 400 000 personnes malvoyantes vivent dans cet Etat indien : le Kerala. La plupart d’entre eux se rend à l’école et nombreux sont ceux qui sont employés par l’Etat. Malgré cela, ils sont dans l’incapacité de réaliser des tâches quotidiennes de manière indépendante puisque se déplacer s’avère compliqué.
Alors, ces personnes se retrouvent confinées entre 4 murs, ne pouvant se déplacer seules. Le fait de vivre dans des zones rurales, tandis que la majorité des associations pour malvoyants se situent en ville, rend impossible leur accès à certaines de ces installations prévues pour les personnes présentant une déficience visuelle. Le problème est que les tuteurs ne savent pas emmener ces personnes jusqu’aux centres. Du coup, Jyothirgamaya propose d’amener l’école jusqu’à eux.
A travers les médias (dans les journaux, à la radio et sur les chaînes publiques populaires), la fondation relaie ses services. Pour se faire connaître davantage, nous proposons des ateliers sur le court-terme et des chantiers à différents endroits, au sein de l’Etat.
Pour rendre meilleures les conditions de vie des malvoyants, dans tous les secteurs possibles de la vie, une prise en charge personnalisée, basée sur les besoins individuels est nécessaire pour permettre à chacun d’affirmer sa personnalité et ainsi d’accéder à un emploi ciblé et adapté. Sensibiliser la population aux difficultés quotidiennes des malvoyants, dans le but d’instaurer un milieu favorable pour tous.

A propos du travail de volontaire

L’accompagnement des personnes malvoyantes, à travers une communication en anglais et un accès informatique (sur des ordinateurs avec logiciel de lecteur vocal d’écran) soutenu par l’équipe d’éducateurs. La rencontre élargira votre horizon et celui des étudiants.
La recherche de matériel également à l’étranger afin d’améliorer la qualité de l’accompagnement, la traduction de brochures, flyers et autres vers votre propre langue et diffuser la portée de l’association dans plus de pays, la faire connaître auprès d’éventuels donateurs et organisations similaires. En résumé, apporter des idées neuves à la fondation et ouvrir la voie vers le progrès.
Des réunions, des formations en extérieur sur la mobilité, des activités avec les étudiants, des visites dans d’autres associations du même milieu et la participation à des événements.

A propos du logement sur place

Vous serez logés à l’auberge dans une chambre individuelle

A propos de l'alimentation

3 repas/jour vous sont offerts

Localisation du projet

Vous serez en contact avec la communauté malvoyante, généralement issue d’un milieu conservateur. Ce projet vise le changement social et l’échange interculturel. Ce milieu est un mélange de culture moderne et orthodoxe.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

De petits voyages jusqu’aux plages et aux montagnes sont accessibles aux volontaires. Vous êtes invités à découvrir la sublime région de Kerala. Une terre de palmiers, plages, montagnes et canaux ; une oasis de verdure.

Exigences


Informations supplémentaires sur le projet

Il vous faut un visa. Vous recevrez l’invitation de la part de la fondation afin de lancer la demande de visa. L’association Jyothirgamaya ne demande aucun frais de participation. Cependant, en plus de votre participation sur place au projet, tout don est le bienvenu si vous le souhaitez.


NOTE IMPORTANTE

Ne pas hésiter à être proactif sur ce projet !! Toute idée est la bienvenue (mise en place d'ateliers d'animations etc). Il est préférable d'être assez autonome et dynamique pour apprécier pleinement son expérience de volontariat chez notre partenaire Jyothirgamaya !

A propos de l'organisation localeFSL-India, (Field Services and Inter-cultural Learning - India) is a youth development organisation focused towards Inter-cultural Learning through Voluntary Services set up to promote Global Understanding by providing opportunities to the youth to work in different cultural contexts to appreciate Inter-cultural learning. Thereby, reducing boundaries and bringing people to work together in harmony by understanding the Inter-cultural aspects focusing towards development of people and society through youth mobility and volunteerism. Founded in the year 2000 and legally incorporated in 2001, FSL-India is a Trust under Indian Trust Act 1882. It was formed with the support of like-minded National and International Organizations with a primary purpose to bring about global transformation, progress and growth through youth exchange programs. FSL-India is headquartered in Bangalore, with regional offices in Karnataka (Bangalore, Mysore and Kundapur), Tamil Nadu (Chennai), and Pondicherry and is well equipped with experienced associates who support developmental activities across the country with the help of Local and Regional Partners. Annually, FSL- Indi a mobilizes movement of 1500 and more youths from across the globe with the support of International Partners and local NGOs.

A propos du travail de volontaireThe challenge of food security, especially in the face of rising food prices, places a serious responsibility before the country. Despite immense advances in the agriculture sector, many people still sleep hungry or live under the threat of food shortage. The degradation of natural resources is also a major concern as it severely impacts the livelihoods of poor and backward communities in rural areas. In this backdrop, sustainable agriculture is one of the most effective ways to respond to the challenges of the rural community. In essence, Sustainable Agriculture refers to a set of practices adopted for cultivation that are least harmful to the environment while also ensuring a good crop. It involves crop production methods that support sustainable natural resource management to increase crop productivity, maintain biodiversity, and also are economically viable and socially acceptable. Organic farming is generally sustainable; however, organic produce can also be cultivated on large scale industrial farms that are not sustainable. Soil and water management, organic farming, integrated pest management, and integrated nutrient management are common practices promoted under sustainable agriculture. Sustainable agricultural development, as well as employing organic farming methods, seeks food and nutritional security, improved livelihoods for our people, safe ecosystems, and sustainable economies of agriculture. As a volunteer in this field of work you will • Work with the farming community and the associated organisations that assist in sustainable agriculture and/or organic farming. • Conduct community awareness on the importance of sustainable agriculture. • Facilitate training and capacity building on crop productivity, how to maintain biodiversity, water management, organic farming, integrated pest management, and integrated nutrient management, surveys, documentations etc. The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

A propos du logement sur placeYou could be staying with local families near to the project. You could be sharing rooms with 2-3 volunteers or staying on your own. Sometimes, projects provide accommodation for the volunteers. The project will provide a room that is shared by other volunteers or with the staff of the project.

Localisation du projetOur projects are spread out across different regions in South India. Your project location could be in any one of the following locations - Bangalore, Mysore, Chennai, Kundapur, Udupi, Mangalore, North Karnataka or Pondicherry. You will be notified of the location of your project a month prior to your arrival. During the Orientation week, one can find out the leisure activities around your area. There are lots of things to do in south of India.

A propos du travail de volontaireAn Anganwadi (meaning ‘courtyard shelter’ in Hindi) is in many ways a day care centre for childrenbelow 6 years of age and were established around the country in 1975 as a part of theGovernment of India’s Integrated Child Development Scheme (ICDS). One of their main functions is to provide non-formal, pre-school education to children between the ages of 3 to 5. Volunteers will be expected to teach children in this age group through various interactive and creative activities that will help improve the cognitive skills of the children. The pedagogical approach to teaching should be in accordance with standards employed in kindergartens around the world. Anganwadis were also envisioned as a part of the Indian public healthcare system. Along with providing pre-school education, one of their main functions is to act as primary healthcare centres in villages and raise awareness of health and hygiene in their locality. Volunteers can also help these workers in providing health, hygiene and nutrition education to families. This will include teaching them about family planning, educating parents on child growth and development, among others. The volunteers should bring in creative ideas to initiate new activities in the school. It is important for the children to be felt loved and cared for by you, as you will be surrounded by them every day. This type of project is perfect for you if you are someone who has many ideas in teaching different kinds of activities such as games, songs, arts and crafts or sports and athletics to! You will be teaching a variety of subjects depending on your personal interests and skills. Volunteers should have a good level of spoken English, and previous experience in teaching children will be useful. The Info-sheet will have more information regarding the individual projects with schedules, and activities.

We welcome anybody who is interested to participate in our voluntary programs regardless of age, sex, religious belief, ethnicity or sexual orientation. Most of our programmes do not require any specific skills. But as the work is humanitarian in nature, we encourage volunteers to be: Ø Open Minded: It is essential to be open to new ideas, situations, morals, values and ways of doing things. Things may be different from what you are used to or your existing expectations. If you remain open minded then you will be flooded with new opportunities. Broadening the mind is at the heart of inter-cultural exchange. Ø Flexible: Remaining flexible to ideas, people, situations and encounters is important. While working at social projects, you will be dealing with people – and people are unpredictable. Taking a flexible approach is often the best way to deal with such situations.

A propos de l'organisation locale

Sambhali Trust a été créée en 2007 afin de lutter contre les discriminations de genre, de classe et de caste dont sont victimes aux quotidiens les femmes et filles du Rajasthan. Notre principal objectif est de promouvoir l'estime de soi et l'indépendance économique des jeunes filles et femmes désavantagées dans la société indienne à travers, principalement, des cours d'anglais, d'hindi, de mathématiques et de formations professionnelles en artisanat (couture et broderie). De plus, Sambhali Trust lutte pour changer les conditions de vie des femmes rajasthani en organisant des groupes d'entraide et de gestion économique, en offrant un accès aux prêts et à la création de petites entreprises. Nous participons également à leur empowerment en leur enseignant leurs droits humains et en leur offrant refuge, consultation et support en cas de violence domestique, de problèmes financiers ou de problèmes médicaux.

A propos du travail de volontaire

Au sein des centres d'empowerment, les volontaires sont amenés à enseigner l'anglais et/ou les mathématiques à des femmes et jeunes filles ayant différents niveaux: beginner - medium - advanced.

Pour ce faire les volontaires doivent préparer leurs classes. Il n'y pas de programme scolaire stricte; les volontaires peuvent enseigner ce qu'ils leurs semblent le plus utile et ce qui intéresse le plus les étudiantes. Ils peuvent également prendre connaissance de la matière précédemment vue par les anciens volontaires. La plupart des volontaires font preuve d'imagination et d'originalité, s'aident principalement d'internet et de différents matériaux de cours mis à dispositions par Sambhali. Les mercredis sont consacrés aux ateliers éducatifs (workshop); les volontaires présents dans un même centre proposent chaque semaine une activité sur un thème de leur choix (géographie,histoire, hygiène, santé, droit des femmes) sous forme d'exposé rapide, aboutissant à une discussion avec les étudiantes. Les activités manuelles sont également fortement encouragées.


Du lundi au vendredi, les volontaires enseignent dans deux centres différents; un centre le matin et un centre l'après-midi. Sambhali Trust organise le transport (van) entre les centres et la Guesthouse.


Exemple de journée type: selon les différents centres les horaires de travail sont légèrement différents.

- 8h-10h: petit déjeuner

- 10h30 - 11h45: "Jodhpur empowerment center": enseigner les maths et/ou l'anglais

- Temps libre

- 13h: déjeuner

- 14h-17h: "Sisters for Sisters": enseigner les maths et/ou l'anglais

- Temps libre

- 19h: Repas du soir

- Temps libre



Durant les temps libre entre les différents projets, les volontaires sont libres d'organiser leur emploi du temps tel qu'ils le souhaitent: préparer les leçons de la semaine, les tests, les ateliers, visiter Jodhpur, sport, yoga, leçons d'hindi, faire les magasins, etc.

Les lundis, mardis, jeudis et vendredis sont consacrés aux leçons d'anglais et de mathématiques.

Les mercredis sont consacrés à des ateliers informatifs (workshop). Les samedis et dimanches sont des jours de congés.

A regarder: vidéo "Volunteer profile- Education"

Localisation du projet

L'Inde est un pays de contrastes et de diversités avec une grande richesse culturelle.

L'hindouisme est la principale religion en Inde (représentant 83% de la population) donc la plupart des coutumes et croyances sont basées sur un point de vue hindou.

En lien avec la religion, un autre aspect important de la société indienne concerne le système des castes qui affecte les relations sociales, politiques et économiques. En effet, la société indienne est divisée en 4 castes principales : Brahms, Kshatriyas, Vaishyas et Sudras. Cependant, il existe également des castes inférieures et externe à ce quatuor : la caste des « intouchables » ou « Dalit » (traduit par « opprimés ») qui représente 15 % de la population indienne souvent reléguée aux activités professionnelles considérées comme impures telles que le nettoyage ou la gestion des déchets.

Si le sud de l'Inde est connu pour être plus libéral et favorable aux femmes, l'Etat du Rajasthan est au contraire encore très conservateur et patriarcal. Le faible taux de scolarisation féminine est directement lié au mariage infantile, interdit par le gouvernement indien, mais toujours pratiqué dans les villages. Il en est de même pour la pratique de la dot qui mène à de nombreuses violences faites aux épouses.

A propos des activités de loisirs possibles

Durant leur temps libre les volontaires ne peuvent pas s'ennuyer, d'autant plus que Sambhali accueille tous les ans de nombreux stagiaires et bénévoles de diverses nationalités. Il y a donc de nombreuses activités de groupes possibles à Jodhpur et au Rajasthan

A Jodhpur même: visite de la vieille ville et de ses petites maisons bleus, découverte du marché et des échoppes artisanales, découverte de nouveaux restaurants et cafés typiques, visite du Mandore Garden où l'on peut apercevoir des singes en liberté de très près, visite du fort Mehrangarh, visite de White Palace, après-midi détente à la piscine, balade sportive le long du Kaylana lake, etc.

L'Inde étant un pays riche en festivités, les volontaires ont la possibilité d'assister à des festivals religieux colorés et impressionnants (Danses Navrati, Prières aux temples, etc.)

A proximité de Jodhpur:

- Week-end dans le désert de Thar à Jaisalmer: balade à dos de chameaux et nuit dans le désert

- visite d'un village Bishnoi, repas chez l'habitant, découverte de leur artisanat

- visite du village d'Osian dans le désert et de ses anciens temples

- etc.

Les volontaires ont aussi la possibilité de planifier des voyages afin de découvrir l'Etat du Rajasthan (Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Ranakpur, Pushkar,etc.) ou de s'aventurer davantage en Inde (Delhi, Agra, Goa, Kerala,etc.)

La Guesthouse peut fournir une aide pour organiser les excursions et visites, pour réserver des billets de bus, trains ou avions, etc.

Exigences

- Niveau B1 ou supérieur en anglais

- Ouvert au choc culturel

- Proactif

- Voyageur

- Durée min 1 mois
