How To Start Volunteering?

by Goli on Sep 06, 2008      Category: Useful Resources Tags: resources volunteering

Most people think that volunteering means going to school and teaching or working with slums or going and doing some health checkups in unhygenic places. It seems more like a serious affair which requires lot of commitment and saying no to all the cool things that you might do in life. Of course volunteering requires some amount of commitment, but it is not as boring as you may think. There are numerous fun ways to volunteer. Also voluntering does not necessary mean that you have to spend some fixed time every day or every week. There are opportunities available from one off volunteering effort to a weekly effort. Below I have tried to categorize some of the volunteering possibilities based on time you can spare. So if you are thinking of volunteering and dont know where and when to start, one of these could be your starting point. (Since I am from Bangalore India, most of the volunteering opportunities listed here are from Bangalore, or nearby areas. But I am sure such kind of volunteering exists in other places as well. So if you are looking for some such opportunity other than Bangalore do drop in a mail at goli-at-ngopost.org, or drop in the comment below, we will try our best to connect you to the right place)

 

I cant commit anytime, I want to volunteer once in a while when I get time.

 

* Organize a Blood donation camp in your office. This is the simplest thing to do. There are NGOs like Sankalp, you just have to give a call to them and they will do the rest for you.

 

* Collect toys from your building and hand them over to the Toy Bank. Toy Bank is an NGO which collects toys and distributes them to various orphanages and schools. You could also spend some hours on weekend in Toy Bank in sorting the toys, and gift packing them.

 

• Take children to parks/educational tours. Kilikili is one organization which organizes such events for special children. There are numerous schools like Ananya , who are looking for people who can take children for one day half a day education tour to some factory/park/museum.

 

I can spend couple of hours to spare on weekdays

 

• Spend sometime in gift wrapping toys collected for distributing to less privileged kids through Toybank.

 

• Extra coaching to Residential schools like Deena Seva Sangha, Nele.

 

• Spend some time with old people in some of the Old Age Homes in the city, Om Aashram, Little Sisters of the Poor and Anand Aashram.

 

• Take spoken English classes to community women for 2 hours a day whenever you are free at Makkala Jagriti.

 

• Spend time with special children at the Sunshine Centre for Autism. Work with children from the Shrishti Special Academy and Association for people with disability.

 

I can work only on weekends

 

• If you like teaching, Prerana could be the place for you. Prerana is an Institute which supports higher education of poor meritorious students along with counseling them for choosing their courses.

 

• Reading books for blind children, recording cassettes for Blind children. An organization called Samarthanam works on this.

 

• Vidyanikethan runs a program called "Teach the teachers" wherein you and go and teach the teachers on various different subjects

 

I cant travel I want to do something from home

 

• You can translate books or documents/books/comics which are not available in local languages.

 

• You can try to design projects for children which help then in understanding concepts better, like a project or exercise to teach multiplication or solar system. It can be anything. This is required by lot of NGOs who are involved in teaching.

 

• You can write for NGOPost.

 

 

 

I want to do something related to art, performing

 

• There is a group called WEMOVE, which does theatre solely for fund raising for various NGOs.

 

• You could make films for various NGOs, which would help them in their fund raising drives.

 

I am a NERD, and want to do something related to computers

 

• There are numerous NGOs who need help in setting up their websites, and putting some basic Content Management Systems in place. They are ready to do work, you just have to guide.

 

• Maintaining PCs and networks for NGOs. Becoming a System Administrator for some.

 

I want to do marketing for NGOs

 

• Numerous orphanges, childrens organizations, TB patients, make a variety of things, starting from Greeting cards to handbags to candles. Just pick some of them and put it at the office reception for sale. Or you can invite the people and they will come to your office and put the stalls (in lunch room??)

Thanks goli for coming up with such an exhaustive list. I will go through it once more later and try adding points (If I find any!)

pulkit's picture

This is a really useful compilation. I want to add a point for those who want to do their two cents 'virtually' - i.e. from home/office using the computer/internet.

- You could work on building or expanding the syllabus and teaching material of education programs which could be computer education, analytical reasoning, communication skills or life skills (money management, etc.). I know from a personal experience that this is a real value-add in many places.

ashima.goyal's picture

Great compilation. I can add a few more organizations where one can volunteer. Again these would be based in Bangalore.

-If you have weekends , you can visit Balwadis supported by Akshara foundation. These are preschools for slum children aged between 4-6 and run by local volunteers trained by akshara. You can visit these balwadis on saturdays and spend some time with the children, playing with them, teaching.
-you can volunteer in Akshara's libraries. (www.aksharafoundation.org)

-Volunteer time at an old age home eg. Little sisters of the Poor on Hosur roads. All that these people want is some time from us.

-start collection drives in office/home. You can donate old books to hippocampus, old clothes at Missionaries of Charity, Rakum School for Blind, old newspapers to Association of People with Disablility(APD).

manisha's picture

Another organisation is Karunashram.The website link is www.karunashram.com. It is related to animal welfare with opportunities for volunteering all over India

pulkit's picture

One can also conduct eye donation/pledging camps in the office/housing colony. NGOs like Sankalp [http://sankalpindia.net/drupal/?q=node/280] and Prabha eye clinic [http://www.prabhaeyeclinic.com/index2.html] would bear most of the burden of running the show.

newbeginning's picture

I know a lot of NGOs in Delhi and Kolkatta. If anybody wants to do anything we can link them up

Goli's picture

It would be great if you could add some of the names here. It would be great as people would get to know about this opportunities.

newbeginning's picture

iltaja is an organisation which is based in east delhi,they work on health focussing mainly on polio and tuberclosis, also in educating children,
-New Beginning,Goonj,operation asha to name a few in delhi and in kolkatta its tomorrow's foundation,future hope and new beginning in kolkatta as well.

anybody who wants to volunteer in delhi or Kolkatta and get in touch with us and we will help in find a placement

prarthana's picture

Good one Goli. The Sattva link mentioned doesn't work... For everyone else, you may always visit www.ivolunteer.in to know about various opportunities available for various issues in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore!!! Lots to do people. We need massive no. of volunteers to change the fortune of our country!!!

prarthana's picture
pradnya's picture

goli please can u tell me some pune based organisations for volunteering.

Indira's picture

What a great list! I just had a couple of things I wanted to add. I live in Canada and volunteer once a week at a hospital with my dog. So for any animal lovers out there being part of a dog therapy program is a great way to spend your time. It really cheers up the patients and you get to spend time with your pet. The Canadian website is http://www.sja.ca/Pages/default.aspx?gclid=CKuf7py_u5cCFQHBDAodqEiZSg but I am sure there are different organizations who do this around the world.

Also, for anyone who wants to spend 2 weeks to a few months doing a one time volunteer program going abroad is a great way to boost up your resume, get some real experience in whatever you are interested in and have an awsome life changing experience. I run a small charity called Action Volunteer Alliance. We send volunteers to work in Nepal. Check our www.actionvolunteeralliance.com.

shilpaguptam's picture

Hi,
I put up in Mumbai(Chembur) and wish to volunteer over the weekends. Anything like helping people,teaching etc would be great. Could someone guide me how I can go about it?

Goli's picture

hi,
Shilpa,
I would get you in touch with Pankhudi, they do lot of work related to teaching and I guess you should be able to find some place near Chembur for volunteering. Additionally we are also writing similar articles for Mumbai, pune, Delhi and all, so that would also be up in some time.

aswin's picture

Hi Rajesh,

This list is a good start for people who are yet to start on something good. Do we have a comprehensive list of all NGOs operating all over India?

I believe a lot of them are represented here and, well yes, in Orkut.. All I'd suggest for NGOpost is like give the users an option to submit the list of NGOs they know with their contact details. From NGOPost's end, all that needs to be done is to add teh details to the list of that particular state and internally, city / village.

This will be a major step forward and will attract not only NGOs, but also potential trusts and organisations who are looking for things to do. I don't know if this option is there elsewhere, but I certainly don't see a comprehensive list on the net. They are either incomplete or with insufficient data or questionable.

NGOs and Trusts on one side, a Volunteer network that will visit the places whenever they could on the other hand, we are looking at a major network here. This will help Organisations like CIOSA etc.

We don't have miscreants here at the site, :P, so this should probably work.

Goli's picture

@aswin,
Thanks for the detailed feedback. We are trying to come up the comprehensive list of the NGOs, there are some technical challenges we are facing with the website to come and accomplish that.
The most challenging thing as you said is to figure out how to keep the information up to date and working, and just figuring out appropriate model for doing the same.
One good NGO database that I keep referring to is ProPoor.org, most times their contacts are up to date and they also keep updating their website quite frequently.
