Charity home for children and the elder in the beautiful hills of Kerala! :)

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHello :)

    We are a Charity Home located in the beautiful hills of Munnar in Kerala, South India.

    Our aim is to provide free shelter and material and emotional assistance to the children in need and the poor, disabled and mentally ill man and woman. Above all, our Home is a place where they can feel the love of a caring community.

    Our foundation started 30 years ago and accommodates 350 people from all backgrounds and religion. We offer the children the opportunity to grow up to their full potential by ensuring they have the best education possible. Moreover, we provide care and psychological and medical treatment to the needy man and woman in order to restore their dignity and independence.

  • Type of work In our Home any help is more than welcome. You can help us assisting the teachers with the activities for the children (reading, dancing, playing), taking care of the old people, cooking for everyone, doing the gardening, helping in the farm, building a new kitchen, helping in the clinic and taking care of our social media and fund-raising.

    Volunteers with experience in counseling or psychiatric nursing would be of great help.

    Any suggestion from the volunteers will be more than welcome.
  • Hours per day Around 4 hours per day, 5 days a week, but we can talk about it and find an arrangement that is good for everyone :)
  • Work requirements: We would love to host people that are passionate about helping others and are interested in pedagogy, psychology and social work.

    Our home is a great place to experience the personal growth and inner peace that comes from helping the people in need and learn from working with both children and the elder. Get inspired by our community and our staff that is committed to a life of helping the others.
