I am a student from an overseas university in Singapore. I am currently on
an exchange programme in a university here in Ahmedabad, Mudra Institute of
I am on a scholarship here and my scholarship requires me to be involved in
some form of community service or volunteering work.
Instead of getting involved in the usual, mundane community work, I wanted
to be part of a programme, as a volunteer, that would really allow me to learn
more about India, its people and its culture, that I can share with my friends
and fellow volunteers back in Singapore.
I would like to know what kind of volunteering opportunities you might have
I am a communications undergraduate, so I do have skills in writing,
reporting, public speaking and presentation.
I am also a trained theatre actor back in Singapore.
I can speak English and Tamil fluently. However, I do have to admit I
cannot converse or understand Hindi, which might inhibit me from being part of
I would really love if you can give me a chance to really do some
ground-work, or research work where I get to communicate and talk to
underprivileged children or people and get to understand their way of living or
their problems. I would be more than willing and delighted to help in any way I
I am willing to travel at my own expenses (food, accommodation and travel),

Tamil Nadu, where perhaps my fluency in Tamil would enable me to communicate
with the people over there better.
I look forward to hearing from you soon and I am really hoping for a
meaningful and fruitful volunteering opportunity with you.
With Warmest Regards,
