About

Teach English, Music, Drama, French, German, Arts and Crafts or Sports to children in India in nursery, primary and secondary schools.

You may also have the opportunity to teach sport for an hour each day at one of our larger schools. The sports on offer are badminton, volleyball, throw ball, football, cricket and even swimming.

ACCOMMODATION: For a complete Indian experience we'll arrange for you to stay with a wonderful host family. All of our hosts are very welcoming and not only will be made to feel part of the family you’ll also gain a great insight into Indian culture and customs.

You may share a room with other volunteers. All of our host family houses are close together and just a few minutes’ walk away from internet cafes, banks and snack shops and just a short auto ride into the centre of town. Our staff in Madurai also live close-by.
