Sebastian Indian Social Project welcomes volunteers for a minimum commitment of three months.
Volunteers can assist our teachers, kitchen staff and sometimes our handicraft unit.
We ask our volunteers to respect the local culture and traditions which you can read about below. We expect our volunteers to be prompt and trustworthy individuals as the children's wellbeing is our highest priority.
