get the life changing experience BY volunteering
More and more these days people are looking for ways to volunteer in India, there is something about this country that has an appeal for those who are wanting to do good in the world. There is a huge multitude of ways that visitors and volunteers can help out here on our orphanage. Occasionally things go so well that volunteers end up returning time and time again… some even end up joining us on staff. We prefer to individually work out somewhat of a timetable for each visitor that fits in with our children’s home duties, school and tuition timetables. That said this is a pretty good example of what one might look like:
— Volunteer with
Generally we like to find out from a volunteer what area of ‘work’ might interest them the most. That said, we are not always able to provide the exact job that a volunteer might want to do. We want your time with us to be productive, beneficial and enjoyable for everyone. Volunteer Work can be things like:
- Reading to children
- Painting & construction
- Gardening & landscaping
- Running activities/game
- Library management
— Special Projects
From time to time visitors want to run or assist in specific projects. Some volunteers even choose to raise funds for specific projects before coming out to the Mission. It is very important that these projects be discussed with/approved by a member of our Board first. Unfortunately we are not always able to implement projects the way that you might suggest; we will always try to communicate the reasoning for this to you as best as possible. We ask for your understanding. The complexities of the law, systems on the Mission and our community can make some suggestions difficult to implement. Please know that we keep the well-being of our children and the Mission as our first priority.
My opinion about home: “I know the sharon children home since 2009 when I was doing my engineering. They were 25 children in 2009 and now in 2014 number become around 60. But still the sharon home under the well organising management is running successfully and children getting food, clothes, shelter and education everyday even in this less income and more expenditure days. And I highly appreciate the principles and ambition of sharon home and their ways to achieve the goals. And I proud to be part of it. Also I assure that I’m there for any sort of help any time..”

I am writing as a reference for Sharon Children Home of Mangalagiri, India. Over the past two years I have supported their mission in helping to provide their basic needs by funding for winter clothing and other periodical needs. The children home, in my opinion, is doing a superb job in reaching abandoned children in nearby areas. Their structure in discipline is helping the kids to reorient their focus to worthy goals of productive citizens of society.

The Sharon Children Home is running with very good motto and service aspect is too good. The children in are more active in extracurricular activities. The teachers are suggested to teach more about the Inspiration Incidents and role model dignitaries to the children. Finally the Sharon Children Home management is working hard towards the poor .Excellent.

Thank you my brothers and sisters for the work you are doing here at Sharon. The children are happy and healthy. Your vision to help more children and acquire the land to do so is inspiring .You have been so hospitable and caring for me during my stay. I have felt very welcomed and cared for. The Vocational training is a much needed addition to the schooling. Unfortunately many of these children may not go to college but will have required the knowledge and experience needed to start a business for themselves. Most of all thank you for the love and tender care given to the children .Without it they would surely perish or be lost in Labor.
