Through a partnership between the Haas Center for Public Service, Project
Dosti gives up to eight Stanford undergraduate students the opportunity to
travel to India during the summer to volunteer with one of two partner
organizations (AGN School or Aarti Home). Partner organizations provide
room and board for the volunteers, and an International Service Grant from
the Haas Center for Public Service helps cover the costs of airfare, visas,
and further expenses. This is an incredible experience and a long-standing
program at Stanford.​ Application is due Feb 7th at 11:59.​

*Aarti Home*
*Location: *Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh
*Primary Language: *Telegu (school administrators speak proficient English
and all children are instructed in English)
*Number of Volunteers: *3
*Trip Length: *8 weeks
*Background: *Aarti For Girls is an NGO that works at the grassroots level
to provide social, economic, and infrastructural help to underprivileged
women and children in the rural parts of Andhra Pradesh. Aarti provides a
home and a school for abandoned girls while also providing vocational
skills workshops and life skills classes for women.
*Summer Project: *Volunteers support Aarti by helping raise domestic and
international awareness of the cause. This is done by aiding in grant
writing, organizing programs and workshops, and helping with administrative
tasks. You will work directly with the head of the institution and other
influential women in the area to directly impact the women's rights
movement in that region.






*AGN School*
*Location: *Konganapuram, Tamil Nadu
*Primary Language:* Tamil (school administrators speak proficient English
and all children are instructed in English)
*Number of Volunteers: *3
*Trip Length: *8 weeks
*Background: *AGN is a school of approximately 2500 students, in the heart
of Tamil Nadu, halfway between Salem and Erode. About 200 of the students
board at the school; the rest come from the nearby villages.
*Summer Project: *The teachers and administration are all very flexible and
welcoming to any projects volunteers wish to undertake. Volunteers will
work with all grade levels (K-12), often on computer literacy, English
grammar, and pronunciation. During the spring, volunteers will develop
workshops to implement over the summer to grades K-12. The workshops should
model interactive teaching and emphasize creative and critical thinking.
Volunteers will live in a guest house on the AGN campus.
