Volunteer

Sharana receives several volunteers every year, particularly from Europe and the United States. Volunteers bring new energy and skill-sets to the organization, along with stories and experiences from other parts of the world.

 
Childrens Empowerment
At the core of Sharana’s work is a commitment to enable children to fully claim their rights to education. Too often, children’s education from socio-economically disadvantaged families is neglected, often charged with the responsibility of caring for younger siblings, or earn. Sharana seeks to create an infrastructure that supports them and enables them to enroll or resume their formal education.
Rural Development
To help children obtain their rights to education means supporting families who then do not need their children to work to supplement family incomes. That, in turn, means addressing childcare, medical, nutritional, emotional, economic, and other needs, as well as creating spaces where communities can gather to attend to the issues that concern them.
Women's Empowerment
Sharana works towards economic empowerment of underprivileged women of Puducherry and Tamil Nadu. The program aims to make women financially independent by providing financial support for their business, building their entrepreneurship and leadership skills, as well as confidence and self-esteem.
