To empower women folks of this area, we are forming poor women's self help groups. Micro credit programs are also going on. The volunteers can visit the members' houses, participate in the meetings for the SHGs conducted by us and by this, the volunteers can get first hand practical knowledge of the status of the poor women folks of this area who are upgraded by us through our micro credit programs.
Our SHG members are from poor family backgrounds and the decision making authority in most of the families are men. To get our women SHG members equal status in the families, we are working hard and in almost every meeting, this particular subject is raised and our members are getting awareness in this regard.
If volunteers from abroad are placed, they will get more knowledge about gender equality and our women SHG members' position will be improved further, we hope.
The volunteers will get them aware of the socio economic conditions of women in Europe and other continents. Our female staff members will guide you during your volunteering here. The SHG volunteers also have to teach English in our Nursery and Primary school here
Three times homely food with packaged drinking water and very good accommodation will be provided to the volunteers. Phone and internet facilities are available on payment basis.
Our past volunteers really enjoyed the stay and mingling with the family members, attending local functions and ceremonies cannot be forgotten ever by the volunteers. The working hours will be 9 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday and on Saturdays and Sundays, the volunteers can go out on weekend trips to many tourist spots like hill stations and beaches near our home town.
The volunteers can fly to CHENNAI from their countries and from Chennai, domestic flights are operated to MADURAI. From the Madurai airport, the volunteers will be received by us. The selection is through e.mail only after getting short resume also through e.mail.
