Volunteer

Immerse yourself in unforgettable Indian experience, challenge yourself, develop new skills, gain valuable work experience, and most importantly contribute to our vision: world there every child can enjoy basic rights and joys of childhood equally. With over 15 years of experience accompanying international and national individuals, we are always looking for enthusiastic, compassionated and committed individuals to join our organization.

Shaishav takes volunteers from many different walks of life. We regularly host student volunteers from Bhavnagar University who do placements with us as part of their Master of Social Work (MSW) programme. We also take volunteers from our partner organisations such as Play for Peace and 2Way Development for varying amounts of time.

If you are interested in volunteering for Shaishav, send us an email outlining what you hope to achieve and what you think you can offer us. We are especially interested in people with dual Hindi/Gujarati and English language skills. You will be expected to cover all costs associated with your placement yourself. In return we can offer you valuable experience in the areas that interest you most.
