Volunteering increases self-confidence and combats depression; help you acquire business skills and build career, make new friends and do networking and most important is fun and happiness.

So if you care about others and want to do good for the society, join us. Volunteering can be the most satisfying and rewarding experience for you. Besides bookish knowledge, the real world experience is the one that gets you a good job or helps acquire entrepreneurship skills.

CityNeeds is a virtual platform connecting local NGOs with their nearest and relevant volunteers and donors. In our first year we have partnered with 70+ local NGOs and raised over 1 crore rupees. With our dedicated volunteers, we have also organised huge donation drives for people who needed food, books, blood, or clothes etc. Needless to say, that our volunteers have blossomed their personalities by way of organising mega events on their own. We are now expanding to Punjab and will partner with over 400 NGOs in our 2nd year. This brings a huge opportunity for volunteers across the state. You can represent a group of friends, your institution, be an individual volunteer, be our vlogger, content writer, our reporter or explore other rewarding opportunities. To know more... Register

2. Menstrual Hygiene

According to a UNICEF report, more than 70% girls in India are unaware about periods till the first time they bleed. The lack of education about menstrual hygiene in India leads to misinformation, shame, and even sickness. Even in the 21st century, so many girls and women cannot talk about it openly, and so they are not aware about proper ways to take care of their health in this delicate time.

Women Next Door has taken an initiative to stop the hush-hush around this, not just among women but also among boys and men. In this online workshop, you can learn about how to openly and thoroughly discuss periods and its healthy practices. Have all your questions answered about how periods happen, and how to best care for the body during that time. You can learn through interactive videos, diagrams, and even comics!

3. Child Abuse Awareness and Protection

img

Shockingly, 53% of the Indian children are victims of emotional, physical or sexual abuse. 1 in 6 boys and 1 in 4 girls experience some form of sexual abuse before they turn 18 years of age. Around 90% of these crimes are perpetrated by the family members and more than 70% of these cases are not even reported and shared. Why? Because most children don’t even understand what has happened to them or they are ashamed to talk about it.

We need strong awareness for Prevention of child abuse. In this online awareness program, a well-renowned senior Paediatrician and Counsellor in Ludhiana, Dr. Mehak Bansal will address the audience who want to create awareness on this topic and the inspired volunteers can later undergo an advanced program to become a counsellor. This is for all parents and teachers to teach their children good touch and bad touch and self-protection techniques to their 5-12-year olds and sexual education & Self Awareness program to the elder ones. This workshop will include simple techniques with simple words to make it the most effective and impactful communication.

4. Consumer Rights Awareness

img

Any person who buys a product or service is called a consumer. This definition includes all of us. And so, Under the Consumer Protection Act in India, all of us have the right to get value for our money in all respects. Unfortunately, many of us are not aware of these consumer rights or the duties as sellers. This lead to cases of fraud and cheating or dissatisfaction amongst customers and at times, even direct threat to our safety. In this workshop, senior officers from Bureau of Indian Standards (Government of India) and experienced social activists from Akhil Bhartiya Grahak Panchayat will share knowledge on all basic consumer rights. Not only will this make you aware about your own rights, but it will also help you watch out for your family and friends. From a career perspective also, it will help you in all your future assignments, jobs and business. An advanced course in this field empowers you to conduct similar seminars in different institutions

Today, majority of Indians are connected to the internet. Every day, we use it to read, share, and spread news around us.

8. Road Safety Awareness Volunteers

India reports 1214 accidents per day, resulting in more than 1.5 lac deaths per year. The major reason behind these shocking numbers is rash driving and disobeying the traffic rules. And now the number of vehicles on our roads is increasing day by day, so the number of accidents will also increase. That’s why there is an urgent need for continuous awareness about road safety etiquettes from a young age. Organizations like Punjab Road Safety Council and Punjab Police regularly conduct workshops about sensible driving and road safety.
