Mother's School In India|
Mother Meera has opened a school for small children at Her ashram in
Madanapalle, Andhra Pradesh, India. The school will provide an education
for children who would otherwise have no means to obtain it.
All classes are taught in English or Telegu. Children, ranging in age from
3 - 14, are already enrolled in school and are receiving their education
under Mother's care and guidance. More children will be accepted each semester
as space permits.
The school is now looking for volunteers who have a natural affinity
and ability to work with children. In the kindergarten, volunteers will
work with young children from 2 to 6 years of age. In the other classes,
volunteers will support the teachers. A good knowledge of English is necessary,
and teaching experience would be helpful but is not essential. The intention is
that the school will make a gradual transition to a child-centered model of
learning. Most important is the volunteer's willingness and ability to
dedicate a committed period of time, beginning with the coming academic
year (June 2011).
The school has a particular interest in finding teachers from Kerala
and Tamil Nadu. Indian teachers will receive full payment. The school needs
teachers for Baby Class, LKG, UKG, and 1st until 7th grade.
Western teachers may also volunteer to teach science, mathematics, and English.
Gardeners, Landscapers, Park Planners
Mother Meera's Ashram has 10 to 15 acres of land to be developed
into a public park. Volunteers with related experience in landscaping,
gardening, park planning, or creating a vision for public gardens are
invited to participate in the gardening project.
Mother Meera is also seeking medical doctors who would be willing to
volunteer their time and services for the surrounding community.
Architects are also welcome.
