VOLUNTEER

Volunteering in our fondation is, for sure, an extraordinay experience and, considering that ours is a girls’ school, we will warmely accept female volunteers of any nationality (any exception will be demanded to the local person in charge). You will have the chance to work in the Fior di Loto Girls’ School teaching the girls, for at least 2 weeks, whatever subject could enrich their mind with new knowledges such as English conversation or any other foreign language, arts and crafts, drawing, drama, physical education, hygiene, first aid etc…There are just a few simple rules to follow and you will find them all in the “volunteer rules”

The foundation doesn’t provide any facility (food, accomodation or transportation) but to join us in this experience not any compulsory contribution is due to the foundation even if a free donation would naturally be more than welcome.
The school is opened from the first of July till the end of April but please consider that this last month is almost entirely dedicated to the final exams and the Indian calendar includes several festivities therefore we would be grateful to whoever could be interested to get first in touch with us by sending us a message specifying the subject that could be taught, for how long and in which period of the year the volunteer would like to work.
Thanks in advance to all the future volunteers because your precious contribution help us in giving the girls the best possible education!
