Volunteering in Kolkata

Calcutta Rescue always seeks professionally qualified volunteers in the fields of healthcare, education, management consultancy, finance, IT, and PR.

Calcutta Rescue’s volunteer posts focus on skill sharing with the staff in Kolkata, and are primarily capacity-building roles, as local staff carry out the daily ‘hands-on work’. We generally ask volunteers to commit for a minimum period of 3 months, but short-term volunteers (wholly self-funded) may also be accepted from both medical and non-medical backgrounds to work on specific projects.
