Parijat Academy is a non-profit organisation that offers holistic education to children from less privileged, tribal communities in Assam. Children of Parijat blossom in a stimulating and caring environment and are ready to take on the world with life skills and livelihood training.
Every child deserves a good education. With free education, children from marginalised, tribal families in Assam can learn, grow and dream big.
Children from remote villages stay in our accommodation free of charge. Members of our dedicated staff double up as their care-givers.
Children need more than just classroom learning to thrive. We provide nutritious meals, physical education and training in life skills.
Parijat is more than a traditional school. We impart livelihood training that will help the children find employment upon graduating.
Parijat Academy is 20 years old. We are marking the occasion by taking a pledge to grow our school’s capacity to 500 children by the end of this academic year.
We need your support to fulfill our commitment. You can help us grow the school, improve our facilities, and continue to nurture and educate children from needy families.
Nurture love for fellow human beings and the world around you
Share somebody else’s burden and lighten their load
Live every day with grace and consideration towards others
Take ownership of your actions and contribute to society’s good
We welcome all students and professionals committed to our causes of poverty alleviation and education for all. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age. Our children often form relationships with the volunteers and look forward to seeing them regularly. As such, we require a minimum commitment of four weeks.
Volunteers undertake a number of tasks, including teaching classes, organising activities, assisting in daily administration and supporting our marketing and campaign activities. If you are keen to join us, highlight your preferred tasks while applying.
Parijat Academy volunteers have an opportunity to strengthen their inter-personal skills, learn about Assamese culture and form meaningful relationships with the children. Those who complete the minimum commitment period will receive a certificate that recognises their dedication to our cause.
