“Do you want to make some difference?”
Did you know that the ratio of teachers and students in Indian rural areas is 1:50? Students have less resources and fewer opportunities, sometimes missing role models. Do you want to make a difference? Join us here in PLAN Foundation in Shimla, India and help children to connect with the world. Give them the motivation to learn English, tell them about your culture and the life in your country. Teach them your favorite subject while you can also learn something new. Entertaining activities won’t be missing, after all, learning should be fun. If you’re nodding your head right now, you are the person we are looking for!
