Namaste everyone !!
We are an association that provide basical education in a poor village near Bodhgaya, India.
This is a small school that allows children of very poor villages to access scholarship so they can have the basics of a proper education.

We are located in a small village (sujata) near Bodhgaya, which is the city where Buddha got enlightment !! It is a beautiful place you can visit during your free time.

Work will be 2-3 hours a day (class is only in the morning because children get to help in the fields in the afternoon), 6 days a week.
Work will be teaching some English, basic mathematics and if you can, a bit of geography is great. It is nice for the kids to open their mind worldwide. So if you want to tell them about your travels, your culture, your lifestyle... You are most welcome to do so! :) Children are from various ages, from 5 to 12. We split them in two classes according to their level but you will teach in both classes. Their will be teachers with you to help you.

During free time you can visit Bodhgaya. It's a very cosmopolitan city, as buddhist from many countries come here for their pilgrimage. And the temple is beautiful :) During your free time, our friendly staff (Dinu and Kapil) will show you around. :)

We are in a poor area so unfortunately, I can't give you accomodation and food for free. I can host up to 6 persons at my home (If two people fit in one room) and I ask 1500 Rs a week by volunteer. Also you can get your own food in the city. Their is a lot of delicious indian and worldwide food to try here :)

We are sorry, we can't offer you free accomodation and food but in return for helping us, you will have a wonderful experience of indian life!! You will get a chance to help young children to improve their lifestyle by education. It's a great and human experience! You will see and live the indians everyday life as you will be a part of it !

Please help our kids to grow with good education. They are counting on you !!

We hope to hear from you very soon :)

Mahendra
