What to remember when Volunteering in India
Can I join if I don't speak local language?
It’s ok if you don’t speak the local language. Life Talk Delhi associates with the NGOs and Slum Communities located in South Delhi which are easily accessible by public transport or taxi services. It will be easy for volunteers to travel. Once you reach, your presence and smile will matter more than a few Hindi words you might learn by then:)
Is it safe to go to the slum area?
Yes, it is. Of course, you should always be mindful and respectful. Please mind your dress code! Try to restrain yourself from taking photos. Some things must be shocking for you and you would like to share the experiences with your friends, however, many people might see it as an intrusion to their privacy and won’t appreciate it. The best thing to do is to ask for permission to photograph.
What to wear?
Well, you will be more comfortable wearing something less revealing when coming to the slum area or a center for disable children. No, there is no specific dress code. However, keeping it simple and revealing the least possible will make your experience safer, more comfortable and more respectful to other people.
Can i join if i don't have volunteering expirience?
If you have no previous volunteer experience, it is not a problem! We all learn as we go. There will always be someone who will be able to assist and guide you.
