Gender equality isn't generally well established in India and often women and adolescent girls don’t have equal rights to men, especially in rural areas such as southern Goa, where this project is based. As a volunteer with the Monte Hill Women Empowerment Project, you’ll work with girls and women from underprivileged families who aren’t educated and haven’t ever attended school. They live in slums with limited means and cannot afford formal education or training.

Volunteering 14403967724 o

As a volunteer, you’ll get to:

  • Live and work in the beautiful, laid-back region of Goa, India
  • Meet and work with people from across the world and learn about a different culture
  • Boost women’s morale and self-confidence to help them to be better prepared for life’s challenges and maintain a healthy family and social lifestyle
  • Empower women by helping them in developing their sense of self-worth and help them to become self-reliant
  • Educate women and adolescents on the importance of cleanliness and healthy eating, and encourage awareness on issues surrounding reproductive health and pregnancy
  • Provide vocational training, especially in handicraft activities, that will help them to earn an income
  • Help women from impoverished backgrounds to learn basic English and computer skills. You may also get to teach some of these women advanced English conversational skills
  • Arrange fun and creative activities for the women to enjoy

Work & Impacts

The aim of this specific volunteer project is to empower the local girls and women through basic education and vocational training. Volunteers will be directly involved in teaching them skills such as basic English and computer literacy to help them become self-sufficient by being able to earn an income and contribute to the economic growth of their families and communities.


Volunteers are the change initiators at this sort of project as they teach, train and motivate these women from poor families to come forward and understand the importance of education and healthy living. Female volunteers, especially, become role models to the women.

Language teaching

LANGUAGE TEACHING

As a volunteer, you’ll be teaching mostly illiterate and uneducated women and adolescent girls. Subjects include basic or advanced English, including conversational skills and how to read and write. Once trained, many of these women are then able to pass on their language skills to their children and the wider community.

Vocational training

VOCATIONAL TRAINING

Volunteers can also get involved in leading vocational training sessions, such as workshops focusing on handicraft activities that will help women find opportunities to earn an income. You may also be involved in training these women in basic computer literacy, another invaluable skill in the modern world.

Encourage healthy living

ENCOURAGE HEALTHY LIVING

You’ll be helping to educate women and adolescent girls on healthy living, including cleanliness, hygiene and reproductive health, thus empowering them to have a better quality of life.

Things to do in your spare time

Relax on base

RELAX ON BASE

Your work will be challenging, so take the opportunity to relax on base. Make the most of your down-time by “chilling out” with your fellow volunteers and the long-term project staff or hang out in one of the hammocks on your own.

Explore goas beautiful beaches

EXPLORE GOA’S BEAUTIFUL BEACHES

This part of India is renowned for its stunning palm-lined beaches. Many of these are incredibly popular and can be crowded in tourist season, but those in the south and close to our base are usually quieter and more relaxed. As well as the sandy Majorda Beach, also try to visit the unspoiled, secluded Palolem Beach.

Take in the toddytapping

TAKE IN THE TODDY-TAPPING

You can visit the coconut groves surrounding Majorda Beach, where the Goan toddy tappers work to extract the sap from the trees to make a local liquor that packs a punch. Watch as these men climb the towering trees using only their hands and feet, and be sure to sample some of their palm wine.

Be adventurous

BE ADVENTUROUS

There are plenty of water-based options to keep you busy on your off days, including swimming, boating, dolphin-spotting and parasailing. If you’re after something away from the sea’s edge, you can rent a bicycle and explore at your own pace.

Soak up the local culture

SOAK UP THE LOCAL CULTURE

Goa is home to some of India’s best heritage sites, with impressive architecture and a local culture influenced by the Portuguese colonists of the 1500s. The best way to take in majestic sites like The Basilica of Bom Jesus, Se Cathedral and Shri Manguesh  is with a guided walking tour.

About the Destination

Located in India’s southwest and one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, Goa is world renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets and a laid-back lifestyle that comes from its strong Portuguese cultural heritage.

Indeed Goa attracts more travelers than many other locations in India, and is particularly attractive among youngsters thanks to the vast array of activities it offers as well as its reputation for all-night beach parties.

While getting hands-on experience in community work, volunteers will also be able to enjoy the best that Goa has to offer from their accommodation in the south near to Majorda Beach, a serene and peaceful area that is largely untouched by heavy tourist traffic.

Transport is provided to and from the base and accommodation is safe and comfortable. It’s usually shared and meals are provided. Free WiFi means you can easily stay in touch with friends and family back home.

If you crave a laid-back Indian adventure surrounded by languid fishing villages, beautiful rice paddies, swaying coconut groves and magnificent beaches while helping to empower rural women, this is the project for you – especially if you don’t mind tackling the challenges of heat, humidity and monsoon rain.
