Volunteer Program


About

Though known to be India’s Industrial Capital, Delhi is also home to an estimated 3.9 million people living in slums. These include refugees from various neighbouring countries, as well as thousands of Indians who moved to Delhi in search of work and livelihood. Hence, Lakshyam has come forward in appeal to the rest of the world, for their support, and efforts in making India, and the world, a more habitable place.

Lakshyam is introducing a volunteering program where willing volunteers can work at Lakshyam’s center spread across 5 locations across India. We offer you a wide variety of work that skilled or unskilled candidates can do. Lakshyam has informally adopted three ghettos in Delhi and NCR, followed by Ujjain(Madhya Pradesh) and Ranchi(Jharkhand) in semi rural areas where remedial education as well as healthcare and living standards are taken care of. Additionally, Lakshyam actively operates in 5 different locations all over the country from which volunteers can chose to work at. Our unique selling price is the promise of a holistic experience through interaction with Tribal communities and scavengers; it involves living between them, living their sorrows and a deep insight into their lives.

Your time, skills, knowledge and most importantly, your passion to bring about a positive change in the society is exactly why we would love to have you on board.
