Volunteer Invest is the Arms Around the Child volunteer and study abroad programme. They are a global charity supporting communities and human rights organisations in Ghana, India and South Africa, where they support the development and progression of children under their care.
Their partner charity in India is looking for filming, music, photography, painting, drama and performing art students willing to share their talent, creative ideas and skills with groups of children in Jaipur. The arts are a great way to help children unwind and express their emotions and frustrations, it also teaches them valuable communication and life skills.
This is a very creative and entrepreneurial opportunity. Plan the Project you would like to work on and how the can children be involved. Present your idea, and your suggestions can be based on age, culture and differences.
This opportunity is available for a group of students willing to come together and create a production or individual artists. See this example from film student Reuben, who travelled to Jaipur and recorded two short documentaries about the lives of the children at the care facility.
Applications open all year around, but the main focus is on summer 2018, or for final major project/show research.
Your final film could be used to showcase and fundraise for the NGO in Jaipur and the work they do. Previous volunteers have had their work shown across multiple global charity networks, at music festivals and at film awards.
At this time we are unable to fund students, but have access and knowledge for fundraising and have helped hundreds of students travel around the world. You will be required to cover your living costs and in-country expenses.
This is a great opportunity for students to work with a very established charity and work with different social and cultural contexts in a beautiful country.
