We are a grassroots, non-profit organization.

We operate a children’s home with a farm and we would love to have people with good hearts, flexibility and a good sense of humor come stay with us at our farm and children’s home!

The Farm is home to goats, chickens and cows and we grow onions, tomatoes, eggplant, mango and guava.

We welcome volunteers at our farm for:

Farming: Help on the farm with planting, nurturing and harvesting crops (depending on the season) and necessary labor implements such as building furrows, etc.

Animal husbandry: Helping with the animal rearing and feeding, and collecting animal produce such as milk and egg production.
General maintenance of the farm and the home: fix broken things (lamps, bikes, etc.) paint walls etc.

Help children with homework: Of course, it is also possible to help with homework of the children and spend time with them, in addition to the farmwork.

What we provide our volunteers:

Accommodation: Volunteers will have a shared or private, very simple room in the barn house next to the animals which includes: western toilets, mosquito nets, a bed (please bring sheets, a towel and toiletries), a free Wi-Fi in the community room and English-speaking staff support at all times. The home has a water purification system, so you will always have access to clean drinking water.

Food: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided and are served with the children. Meals consist of rice, dosa, or idly and a curry. For more variety, additional food options are available in Virudhunagar, the town where our office is located. You will be responsible for travel expenses to and from Virudhunagar (Rs. 10-11).

Experience: each volunteer's experience is unique to their own interest. We can promise you a tranquil experience in nature filled with authentic cultural exchanges and memories of India that will last you a lifetime.

Do not hesitate to contact us we are happy to answer any and all questions !
