Volunteering

If you don’t wish to donate money maybe you could donate your time?

Would you like to join our international volunteers to help us give a child a better future? It could change your life and that of a child’s life for the better, forever.

Khushi does not charge any fees to volunteer like so many of the charity organizations you may find on the Internet. Whilst volunteers are expected to pay their own accommodation and food expenses, each volunteer is paid in kind with love and smiles from the children!

 

Simply fill in our online form 

(see the drop down menu above, under volunteering).

We welcome any skills you may have to offer. Teaching English in our after school projects to either our primary children or college students are an option – there will be a Hindi speaking teaching assistant with you too. Helping deliver the crafts and sewing or the Beautician courses in the daytime is another option. These are just a few examples of what you can get involved in.

For more details or to discuss what you may like to contribute feel free to drop an email to our project manager Kapil Dev Bisht khushiprojects@yahoo.com

 

We are a friendly and accommodating organization, so come along and join the fun, whilst making a profound difference the children’s lives and most probably your own too!

We welcome all volunteers, but would prefer to have visitors of one month or more. This is because the longer a volunteer stays the greater the impact they can have on our kids

Ideally the volunteer will work a minimum of 3 days a week, preferably more in the form of teaching, running workshops, helping with general projects, or helping in the shop.

We are always open to any volunteers though, so please contact us if you are interested.

If you are visiting India why not let our manager know and we can arrange a visit for you. Then you can see what we do first hand. You're always most welcome here at Khushi!

 

Here are some of the responses of previous volunteers:

 

Volunteer testimonies

"I had an incredible experience volunteering in this school. I'm feeling so grateful. Children and teachers are amazing."

Verena Zech (March 2018)

"I can’t over estimate how much I enjoyed my time at Khushi. I know it sounds like a cliché but it changed my outlook on life for the better. The sense of fulfilment and enjoyment of being involved with this NGO was all I could have hoped for. During my two months there I taught English (always with a Hindi speaking teacher alongside me!) and worked on their digital content. I made good friends, both with members of staff and with older students. It's not a time I will forget quickly and would recommend this experience to anyone looking to volunteer in India.

Shane Bordoli (December 2018)

"I’ve always been attracted to volunteering. In my role as a teacher I acted as a mentor to older students too. I’ve always wanted to work with smaller children as well. I got to know about Khushi Charitable Society through my friend Mr. Kapil Dev Bist the Project Manager of the Organization in Rishikesh.

I was teaching English for 2 month in Khushi’s after school program, which I enjoyed very much.  It is very good to see Khushi’s efforts to improve the education and the lives of the children. These children are very enthusiastic learners.

I was teaching English for an hour every day from 5pm to 6pm at Khushi after school program. 

I am very happy to have had the chance to teach the Khushi children. I recommend this to anyone that feels like giving back to the community.

I am very thankful of the Khushi team to have allowed me this opportunity to teach the children. I will come back soon to this great Organization.” 

Gokul Singh Bist (January 2018). Lecturer at Poornananda Degree College of Information Technology.
