Volunteering can be done in different ways:
Help by talking about kanthari: Spread the news about the existence of kanthari. You can attract new participants, catalysts, volunteers or potential donors
Volunteering from home: For example you could help out with design, newsletters, translations, write ups etc.
Come and join us in Trivandrum: We always can use motivated, dedicated and technically gifted volunteers who can help out on maintenance, eco-friendly gardening, kitchen, IT and many other interesting activities. You will meet future kantharis from all over the world who have amazing stories to tell and experiences to share. In order to make a stay worthwhile we prefer a minimum period of three months.
kanthari offers board and lodging: The demand for voluntary positions is high. Therefore we have to be selective. Every volunteer will have to go through an application process.
Volunteer for kanthari graduates: Join one of the projects started by graduates all over the world and support them with their work in small and newly established organizations. This might include technical assistance, teaching, administrative tasks, etc.
