Prajwala believes that…
Prajwala welcomes volunteers with the following qualities:
Opportunities for Distance Volunteers:
There are innumerable ways for those who believe in a slavery-free world to stop sex trafficking and contribute to the cause of Prajwala across the globe (for more information, feel free to download our ready-to-use Resource Toolkit):
Volunteers can also create a Friends of Prajwala group in an educational institution, workplace agency or community (for detailed guidelines on how to start one, please click here). We can send you materials such as films, posters, flyers etc. for your discussion group.
If you are a student volunteer and would like to receive academic credit or recognition for your outreach efforts, we would be willing to vouch for you. We kindly request that you document each program and send us a detailed report or photo-essay that provides a track record of your progress. If the occasion warrants and events effectively match the mission and objectives of Prajwala, approval will be given under the discretion of the Chief Functionary.
Opportunities for Volunteers in Hyderabad:
As our mission is to fight an organized crime, we are not in a position to take many in-house volunteers. There are strict stipulations as to whom and the number of people we let in. We would love to take volunteers, but please understand that we face tremendous limitations such as time constraints, security concerns and lack of personnel that limit who we can invite into the organization.
Depending on the needs of our departments, we encourage long-term volunteers with the requisite qualifications and skills who are willing to commit to at least 2 years working with our organization full-time. The areas of expertise we are looking for include medicine, mental health, counseling, education, law, advocacy, social work, and psychiatry.
If you meet the above requirements and would like to give yourself and experience social transformation, you can participate in our organization in the following ways:
If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities, we kindly request that you submit a proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org outlining the type and duration of your involvement along with your CV/resume, and we will inform you if the description fits our current needs.
In extraordinary circumstances, we allow professionals or qualified organizational staff with at least 5 years work experience to contribute for a minimum period of 6 months. Due to the extremely sensitive nature of our work, Prajwala is not interested in volunteers for the purposes of photojournalism, filmmaking, fieldwork, research, tourism or other activities that involve exposure to or interaction with our staff or the victims that we serve. If you are not an Indian citizen and would like to directly support our frontline interventions, regional language competency (Hindi or Telugu) and prior exposure to the Indian context is required.
