Volunteers for Your Project
Ananda Marga Gurukula offers a service to bring volunteers in contact with NHE schools and community projects, that are highlighted on the AMGK website. The volunteer can choose one or more projects and Gurukula will help the volunteers to find the right project according to their skills and desires. When the choice for a project is clear, then Gurukula will contact the project and, if needed, help the project-manager to work out further details. If the project is full, then Gurukula helps the volunteers to find another project.
In the past there were some problems with the applicationform, but since April 2004 that problem has been solved and volunteers are now responding regularly, eager to volunteer in
a holistic environment. Many volunteers like to combine their holidays with doing service and stay for a short period, while others take a sabbatical year and offer their services for a
longer period.
The most popular countries chosen by volunteers are Thailand and India. Volunteering in these countries, or for instance Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Laos, Venezuela or Moldova, is a chance to help children and people in communities to develop themselves and break through their endless cycle of poverty.More info at the Gurukula-website:www.gurukul.edu under
the tab <helping us>. If you would like to take part with your project in the Gurukula Volunteer Program, then please write tomayadhiisa_@ gmail.com
