Thanks to your action today, Main Tendue will be able to sustain its charity action consistently in the future. Below you will find the various ways you could contribute to a noble cause: find the one that fits you best!



Volunteers are the driving force of the support we provide to the NGO’s associated with Main Tendue. Dedicating your time and energy is a unique and enriching experience which will allow you to discover another India, to give but also to receive. You can join our volunteers anytime, bringing your skills, good will, or just some love and care. We appreciate every bit of help: you can help children with their homework, set up activities for them, help in the organization of events or fund-raising campaigns, and much more besides….

Being a volunteer is nonetheless a real commitment which needs to be prepared seriously inorder to avoid disappointment and misunderstanding.

Here are some questions to ask yourself :

- What are the causes that move you most?

- Who would you like to help in particular (children, disabled, etc.)?

- What are your skills? What do you like doing?

- How much time can you give? Full-time / part-time? Long-term / short-term?

- If you do not live in Delhi, what will you do for accommodation? What is your budget?

In order to help us find the NGO which suits you best, please fill in the attached CV mtcvenglish and send it to us at the following address

We will get back to you as soon as we can with some ideas of what you could do and where. Then up to you to contact the NGO(s). 

Please note if you are interested in volunteering during the summer months, you need to send us your request as early as possible. Between 15th June and 1st Sept many of the Main Tendue team are away.
