We would be happy to invite you to our Volunteer orientation meetings held at regular intervals. It will give you an idea of who we are, what we do and what YOU can do as a Relief India Trust volunteer.
While planning out an activity we ask ourselves three questions
Will my action help:
1. in bringing about permanent change in the lives of children
2. address the root cause behind child rights violation
3. in making the state accountable towards children and their rights
Share your ideas and together we will arrive at the “RIGHT CHOICE” that will bring about permanent and positive change in the lives of children.
Yes YOUR VOICE counts!
We believe that we must try to enable a situation where rights for all children are ensured in a permanent way. This means impacting and influencing the body that can reach out to all the children in our country – viz. the government. YOUR opinion has the power to influence the government and Campaigning is a powerful way to build public opinion.
- You find out that children in your locality are out of school as there are no teachers in it.
- You share this information with more people to lend more voice to your demand for the recruitment of teachers
- You ALL knock the doors of the relevant government authority demanding the recruitment of teachers
- You ALL have made a difference by getting the entire system to work
- You ALL have, by ensuring that the system works, enabled children beyond your locality as well to have access to quality education.
- You ALL have touched the lives of so many children
It might take time but the change that it brings about is permanent and positive.
Volunteer campaigns are all group efforts and nothing is done in isolation. In fact, all our campaigns somewhere merge under a common umbrella of themes for which we all advocate. But yes, that doesn’t do away with flexibility of work in terms of time and the way you would like to be involved.
Volunteerism in Relief India Trust is flexible in nature i.e. there are no fixed hours of working. However, it is a long term engagement. Once you join/ start a campaign, it becomes YOUR campaign and you can give it as much time as you like to make it effective and impactful.
Most volunteer activities take place on the weekends, and many allow for work to be done in your own time (research/ studies/ networking online/ updating the volunteer group etc). Most of our volunteers are full time employees or students who manage their volunteer action during as per their convenience.
Yes – provided there is a willingness to engage and contribute to the campaign positively. E.g. If you are a creative professional such as photographer, film maker, dancer, musician, you could use your skills to mobilize similar talents around you and use this skill to advocate for children and their cause with Relief India Trust’s support.
You could chose a volunteering option that allows you to work from home, though many of our volunteers also do field work in order to stay in touch with ground realities8..
We sincerely believe that volunteers at Relief India Trust work due to their sheer interest and conviction to bring about a positive change in the lives of the children. Hence their commitment is not dependent on certificates. However, usually after at least a year long active engagement as a committed volunteer, we provide one with a certificate or a letter of acknowledgement from Relief India Trust if required.
No. However, work related expenses like photocopying, conveyance and other expenses incurred can be reimbursed.
We do issue identity cards. After you complete a certain time period as a volunteer we issue identity proof of being a Relief India Trust volunteer
