Supported by a Dutch government sponsored program, called ‘Xplore!’, the Dutch organization JoHo organizes the Wereldhulpweken (‘world helping weeks’). During the summer vacation period, Dutch young idealists can thus apply to work for a few weeks in India in grassroots development organizations. This will be a yearly recurrent event.
A few examples:
- helping to teach women how to cultivate organic vegetables
- assisting teachers at a village school
- supporting girls in a batik workshop
- participating in an HIV/Aids awareness campaign
