Volunteers

Agragami welcomes volunteers who wish to contribute their time and talent to our work. Volunteers can be of any age- all we are looking for is interest, expertise, and the willingness to regularly devote the time that is needed.

Here are a few activities that we know would make our educational program for children and youth more effective:

  • Art and craft workshops
  • Recitation and speech contests, debates and quizzes
  • Vocational talks
  • Coaching in sports and atheletics
  • Organizing troupes of boy scouts and girl guides and guiding the troupes
  • Drama and street theatre training and contests
  • Story reading and story-telling in English for young children

If you have other ideas, please do share them with us!


Write to us and let us know how you would like to help us in our work. We will get back to you. Please email your letter to headoffice@agragami.org.in
