Want to help improve the lives of India’s orphaned children? This program is for you!

Due to extreme poverty, gender bias towards males and ill health, thousands of orphans in India are given refuge in orphanages and shelter homes run by various non-governmental organizations. The children who find themselves living at one of these facilities have often come from tremendously difficult and traumatic circumstances, leaving them distressed and detached from the joys of childhood we so often take for granted.

The aim of this wonderful program then is to assist in helping with, and caring for these neglected children, and the assistance of international volunteers is desperately needed. Volunteers will participate in the daily routines and can make a great contribution just by being caring and giving the children some much-needed attention. By being there to offer care and compassion, volunteers are making a huge impact on the lives of these wonderful children.


Goals of this Project:

  • Provide essential childcare to vulnerable children in Delhi
  • Improve the future prospects of the children in Delhi
  • Give impoverished and vulnerable children quality care, compassion and a sense of hope
  • Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both locals and international volunteers alike.

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start the 1st and 3rd week of every month with volunteers arriving on SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 12 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions. Spaces on this project are limited and therefore subject to availability. Early booking is recommended.


Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to assist in the ongoing support and development of marginalized and at-risk children of India. This highly interactive and varied project does not require participants to have a background in the field of childcare, as there are many ways you can assist.

However, volunteers with suitable education, qualifications or experience are highly sought after. Regardless, a volunteer’s individual role can often be tailored to suit their particular skills and interests. Importantly, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

I would recommend this program to anyone who is willing to grow and become a better person!

I volunteering for 12 weeks in India with Love Volunteers helping children between the ages of 5 and 12 in a low income area. The kids were all motivated to learn, grateful to have someone to teach them, and full of energy! At the same time, the volunteer house were I stayed was ran by two incredible kind and helpful men. Besides cooking delicious Indian and Nepalese food, they were always willing to help us with anything we might need - from buying a SIM card to planning trips. Lastly, the other volunteers that were living with me at that time made the experience exceptionally memorable. Everybody was cooperative, generous, and willing to explore the city. Throughout the three months I was there I got so close with some of them that we are still in touch and have visited each other even after the experience was over.
