i-india, an NGO in India helping street children in Jaipur. Jewellery making, social and academic teaching and welfare support. Voluntary work programmes available for international volunteer.

Since 1993, i-india, an ngo (non profit) based in Jaipur, India, has been working for the welfare and educational needs of street children. These children have fallen through society’s cracks. In Jaipur, where i-india works, the problem is chronic. Street children are forced to do work including rag-picking, begging, prostitution and domestic labour. i-india offers the children the opportunity to work in a different way through the production of jewellery and handicrafts while providing a safe environment amongst teachers, staff and volunteers.

I-india began as the vision of two people, a Sociology professor, and a local teacher, Prabhakar and Abha Goswami, both passionate about the rights of street children. It began with voluntary teaching in the slums. Every year i-india an NGO in Jaipur, India- improves the lives of approx. 4000 street children in Jaipur and around India, through its programmes including homes, vocational and academic teaching, street schools, medical care, and sanitation. Many foreign volunteers also come each year to teach English, Math, Dance, etc, or provide administrative support.

Many street children come to the centre through the phone support service, Child Line, or through our outreach staff at railway stations. Once a child has been housed in one of i-india’s homes, trained staff and teachers assist them with their emotional and academic education.

One of the main sources of income for i-india is generated from the production of jewellery and accessories made by the children. The jewellery is of superb quality, and you can buy it knowing that the proceeds are funding i-india’s projects. The jewellery and handicrafts provide the child with income, as well as the valuable vocational skills of jewellery making for the girls and sewing for the boys.

Through these programmes, and the dedication of the teachers, staff and volunteers, children gain confidence, social values and most importantly, skills which will carry them further in life. If you’d like to help i-india through voluntary work, donating or buying our products, please contact us!
