About the volunteer workWe work with abandoned and surrendered children between the ages of 0-12. We have 32 staff and 22 foster families taking care of about 70 children. Our programmes in adoption and foster care ensures that Institutional care is the last resort and most of our children find families. We have an informal school where about 20 of our children attend regularly And learn subjects such as math, science, languages. Our Mission statement is as follows "In accordance with God”™s plan, Vathsalya is committed to finding families for homeless children, as every child deserves a permanent family of his/her own". Volunteers can spend time with children aged 0-12. They will need to think of activities and create programmes for activities for children. If they have not thought of anything they will be able to carry our infants and teach our older children. Teachers/nurses etc will make good volunteers for us.
