Women's Empowerment Volunteer Gallery
What is involved
Our women’s empowerment program in India is based in Kochi (or Cochin), Kerala, South India which has been voted in top 10 cities to visit by the Lonely Planet. Our women’s empowerment program focuses on skill development as a form of empowerment. The women who you will meet are local women who are excited to learn English and skills such as embroidery or computer skills. By learning English they can engage in helping their children with school homework, communicate better with those outside their community, feel more confident and with computer and embroidery skills they can secure better paid jobs.
Our women’s empowerment coordinator will be there to guide and assist you with planning and preparing your sessions daily which are usually three to four hours long. We do not impose a strong structure/curriculum to your daily work and encourage flexibility in contemporary topics being taught. Whilst you do not need any specific skills (other than English skills) to join this program, we welcome anyone with a teaching background, those who can assist in creating curriculums or can enhance any skill building for our ladies groups. Through this program we want to you the opportunity to deepen connections with local communities and also to enrich the community through the exchange of cultures.
