New York, NY (PRWEB) August 16, 2005
Working Abroad (http://www.workingabroad.org) announces the launch of Volunteer in India, a new Volunteer Abroad program. The Volunteer in India program compliments other Volunteer Abroad programs including Volunteer in Costa Rica, Volunteer in Peru and Volunteer in South Africa.
This 8Âweek program is available from September through February and features placements in childcare and education. Volunteers are placed at primary and secondary schools and day-care centers. Responsibilities include teaching children math and English, painting, creating teaching materials, working in childrenÂs health clinics, preparing meals, assisting in surveys of pregnant women and young children and many other similar jobs.
According to Patsy Kng, Working Abroad program manager, ÂUnlike many other volunteer programs, when you participate in a Working Abroad program, you can be sure your volunteer efforts are directly assisting those in need. Our local partners ensure each placement is important to the community and is in a safe and structured environment.Â
The Volunteer in India program includes travel arrangements, housing, meals, an orientation program, guided tours and lectures on Indian history and culture and full-support throughout the volunteerÂs entire program.
