In September 2010, I am going to Sangam in Pune, India. This is one of the four world guiding centers (http://sangam.wagggs.org/en/home). I have been accepted on their three month community volunteer program to work with children in the local community around Pune (near Mumbai/Bombay). Community volunteer The Community Volunteer Programme (Flyer) at Sangam World Centre offers a unique opportunity to live the WAGGGS mission whilst staying in a supportive environment. After an extensive two-week orientation programme, participants are placed with an Indian community organization to volunteer for three months. Share Share your energy with children as you teach, facilitate, nurture and create opportunities. Volunteer four days a week for three months in your individual placement with an Indian community organisation. Use your skills to lead games and songs, teach English children or adults. Learn An educational programme includes a two-week orientation programme to introduce you to Indian culture, living in Pune and community development issues. Throughout the programme, activities will explore Indian culture and community development. Volunteers will meet weekly to share their experiences and questions with each other and with Sangamâ€™s Programme Coordinators. Additionally, weekly courses will provide an introduction to Hindi, the national language. Enjoy Pune, a city of 5 million, offers many opportunities for shopping, eating out, dancing, and sightseeing. Weekends are free for exploring Pune and the surrounding area. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to join in parts of Sangamâ€™s international events such as campfires and international evenings. Enjoy meeting Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from Around the World. Trust Throughout the programme, advice and support will be provided. Volunteers can be confident in the knowledge that they have the support and experience of a well-established Girl Guiding/ Girl Scouting centre to keep them comfortable. Young women from the UK, Ireland, Korea, Denmark, USA and Canada participated, enjoying the fun of international Guiding, the chance to learn deeply about another culture, and the chance to give of themselves. Their projects included teaching English and basic computer skills, providing care for infants and toddlers, sharing games and songs, assisting teachers in crÃ©ches, establishing income-generating projects and offering general help to the organizations in various ways.
