We expect our volunteers to be reliable and respectful. They will have to adapt to Indian culture and be proactive in elaborating ideas to improve our projects in Kolkata.

Volunteers will not be asked to do any cleaning nor construction work: we expect them to have skills that can either be taught to our local staff or employed in our projects.

Engineering students might be asked to analyze and evaluate the contruction methods used locally. Sociology students could gather data about our Women Empowerment projects (and, if they wish to do so, write a university thesis or research paper). Economics student can gather and analyze data about out Microfinancing projects, or think of new ways to develop it and improve it. All volunteers can organize workshops for local children (about hygiene, human rights...) or adults wishing to learn new specific skills.

There are endless possibilities.

Atividades & Turnos

Volunteers are expected to work full time, Monday to Saturday. Their activities will depend on the chosen program: we will be happy to discuss them with you after your application, and of course we do NOT expect you to pay the fee before you get to talk to us about it.

Generally speaking, volunteers start their day early in the morning, when they meet with our local partners in their headquarters South of Kolkata.

Medical volunteers either spend the day at the main clinic or follow our Indian doctors to the rural areas surrounding Kolkata. Their duties may include medicating wounds, taking blood pressure, doing injections.

Any other volunteer will be assigned specific duties depending on our current needs and their skills.


No smoking around the clinics or schools. You will represent our association in the eyes of the locals, and our reputation will surely suffer if you are caught smoking close to our facilities. Never go to work in hangover for the same reason. Wear long pants in the clinics and always make sure your shoulders and big, visible tattoos are covered. No piercings. (Sorry, it's Indian culture)
