Government Middle School, Janauli

My beautiful home is situated at DLF valley (in the outskirts of Panchkula city) surrounded by Morni hills at the bank of a river. Forest area, for hiking or tracking, is only 20-30 minutes walk away. Two good hill stations 1) Morni hills ( places like Tikkar Lake) (in Haryana) and 2) Kasauli (in Himachal Pradesh) are only around 45 minutes drive away from here. The capital of Haryana and Punjab, Chandigarh (The city beautiful) is only 30 minutes drive away from my place. There are lots of beautiful places worth visiting are under one hour drive away. In DLF valley club, the facilities like Table tennis, Tennis, Vollyball, Bedminton, Swimming pool, Bar, Cafe, Restaurant etc. are available. Staying with a local family would provide the first hand experience of Indian culture.

The Government Middle School in Janauli village is also situated in the lap of Morni hills. There are only 59 lovely kids from nearby villages and 6 teachers in the school. The villagers are very peaceful people who would love to interact with volunteers and so are their children (students) who are very curious, easy to connect and eager to learn along with that very respectful as well.

So far I came across two types of volunteers in India, one who come, stay and after visiting, decide "they never gonna visit India again" and other who come, visit and after it, they can never stop themselves to visit here again and again. It's your turn to find out...

In GMS school Janauli, there are 5 teachers and 1 school head in teaching staff and two female cooks for preparing mid day meal of the school. All the people are peaceful, cooperative and will love to interact with the volunteers. The treatment depends on both sides, Iam pretty sure about good treatment from school staff and rest is upto the volunteers.

It was an incredible experience! I’m super happy to have met Vikas who helped me and took care of me all the time, he is an amazing person. I had unforgettable moments helping in English classes at school. The teachers and children at the school are super friendly and kind. They have treated me all the time with love and respect.
Thanks to my host India Family who hosted me and opened the doors of their home to me as another member of the family.
This volunteering is recommended! The people, the school and the city landscapes are beautiful.

Katya's stay created many wonderful moments and memories.

She has a good sense of humour along with some creative writing skills. She is an introvert, shy, trustworthy and an honest person. She possesses a kind heart and beautiful soul.

Having such person as a friend is nothing less than a blessing. She is a pleasant and soothing company to be with. Overall she is a happy person and spread good & healing vibes around.
We all enjoyed her company and the togetherness. We would surely love to have her again. Wish her good luck for her wonderful future.

Personally, it has been an amazing experience not only for the volunteering itself, but for the hospitality, generosity and above all, the friendly atmosphere all of them showed me during my whole stay. I felt like at home with Vikas and all his circle of friends/family and I had an incredible time with the lovely students of the middle school. If I can, I will be back again for sure :)

Ainhoa is an active, socially interactive and a nice person. The students enjoyed playing and dancing with her a lot. She is very curious to know and understand the other cultures, people and their languages. We all had a good time with her. I definitely recommend her and we would love to have her here again. Good luck for her future.

I had a wonderful time at the school, the kids were so nice and overall the experience was great! Tip for future volunteers: the kids will give you 10000 presents, so leave a little space in your luggage and maybe bring something to gift them back ;)

I highly recommend this if working with children is something you find rewarding! The nature and scenery you will be surrounded by is beautiful and so peaceful, and Vikas's home is very cozy. You'll absolutely feel welcome and like you're not just a visitor but part of the community!

To work with you was a very nice experience for all of us, specially for boy students because you were the first male volunteer at this school. You are an honest, kind and genuine person with a good sense of humour. I wish you good luck for your future. You are always welcome to work with us again. Take care
