They participate in playtime and sports activities; they use their skills in areas such as theatre, music or arts activities. Children, teachers and …volunteers express great enthusiasm for this experience.

Volunteers pay their own travel expenses such as plane tickets, lodging, transportation from Puducherry to the School and dinner. Lunch taken at the School is free. They work an average of 6 hours a day, Monday to Friday, Saturday being optional.

Volunteers who wish to travel in India before or after their stay in Pondicherry can get sightseeing advice.

These missions offer an exciting project and a beautiful experience for volunteers!
