VEDIKE runs Global Citizens for Sustainable Development Programs to provide volunteer/service learning, study abroad, internship, CSR and both urban and rural field trip/excursion opportunities in India. Our programs can be specifically designed to meet individual/group needs. Please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We run (tailor designed meeting the school/colleges needs) rural immersion programs for primary, high schools and university students coming from urban Bangalore to bridge the gap between urban and rural children and youth, focusing on the importance of sharing urban and rural knowledge.
We also run 1-3 days CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) Programs for IB students, involving activities such as creative workshops, hikes, rural immersion experiences, construction projects and interacting with the children at Vedike Global School.
VEDIKE runs short-term volunteer/service learning/study-abroad programs for youth/university and school students. Participants are involved in working on community development programs in rural Bangalore and Chikballapur, such as teaching and assisting local teachers at Vedike Global School and working alongside local masons and labourers to build homes and toilets in the villages surrounding VEDIKE. They can also take part in activities such as classes on Indian culture and development and traveling to different parts of India.
Some of our flagship programs include:
WE TEACH in India; and
India: Field Study of Development Issues in India (Winter in India)
VEDIKE facilitates CSR opportunities for corporate employees in rural Bangalore. CSR participants can be involved in activities related to education, sanitation, health and hygiene, housing, adult literacy and capacity building and sports and development.
