Aarohi Life Education

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe are a open learning community - essentially working with children (we currently have 16 children in the age group of 7yrs-15yrs). We are located in a 5 acre campus in a village 60km from the city of Bangalore. Our campus is a democratic setup where three adults and all the kids together decide, do and live together.
    The campus is a space for all of us to do OPEN learning - which essentially means each one of us (adults and children) learn what we want to learn, how we want to do it and how much we want to do.
    Set in rural countryside - our campus gives access to open fields, hills to climb, birds to watch and fresh air all the time.
  • LocationIndia, Tamil Nadu, Krishnagiri

  • Work
  • Type of work There are two kinds of Volunteering work and we expect volunteers to deliver in both categories:

    One is working with children - we do not expect volunteers to teach - rather share your expertise by DOING stuff. You could share anything that you are passionate about - could be playing drums or juggling, painting mural or playing soccer, making electronic circuits or android apps, doing theater or exploring maths or cooking or bouldering etc - actually anything under the sky is okay - till you are passionate about it and would love to do it with kids. We expect you to prepare sessions in advance on atleast one topic and share the details with us before coming.

    Second is involvement in our ecologically sustainable living campus projects - which include construction projects like Bamboo dome, mud construction, gardening and natural way of growing own food, etc. We are completely off-the-grid using solar energy and recycling all our water. We also use Solar cookers (and want to make few more). We also want to make Solar water heaters for bathing purpose.

    We expect in any day - you will be involved in both the above categories.
  • Hours per day 5 hours per day, 5 days a week.
  • Work requirements: We expect your profile will have at least one recent informal picture of yours - if not please send the same to us via email or send us a link.
  • Host's preferences
  • Availability: Send a message to inquire.
  • Duration of stay: We can decide this together.
  • Maximum number of helpers: 1
  • Last minute requests: Okay
  • Host
  • Languages:English
  • Has pets? No information provided.
  • Smokes at home? No
  • Accommodation: Since we all live like a community - in one building - you will share space with all of us. We have dorm kind of accommodation - bunker beds - one for each person. We provide free accommodation and food for all volunteers.
  • Additional info
  • In general we prefer ONE volunteer at a time and hence may deny requests from couples (though you can still try us - giving us clarity how two people will add value to our campus individually)

    Since children live at campus - full day is action time - we live together - so we take care of the campus together - clean and maintain it ourselves. We also cook, sing, dance, watch stars, go for treks, etc and yes chat a lot. So when you are here - you can expect action packed days!

    Since its a children learning campus - No Smoking, No Alcohol, No drugs.
