Creative & Performing Arts Volunteer Programme
Calling all drama students, music buffs and arts enthusiasts!
This is an exciting opportunity for a music student on a gap year keen to work abroad, or a career breaker with a passion for the arts to share your talents with vulnerable young people in India.
Faith is a Jaipur based charity providing top-notch care for children from 6 -18 affected by HIV/AIDs.
Their mission is to promote the health, growth and development of these vulnerable children.
The Arts are a great way to help children un-wind and express their emotions and frustrations, it also teaches them valuable communication and life skills.
We’re looking for bags of enthusiasm and a wish to help children realise their creative potential.
Do you care about building better, brighter lives for vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS? So do Faith. They started life providing educational support for children living in railway station slums in Jaipur. Today they are a vibrant care centre providing developmental support and love to over 50 wonderful children.
