I have had the best time at Poornodaya from the team members, tasks, follower volunteers and of course the children! Having not had much experience with children before I was a bit hesitant but after a few weeks I formed such a great bond with them.
They are such beautiful children who are able to flourish in a school that focuses on alternative learning through playing. Great place and would highly recommend.

This is a magical school. A place where kids are actually a priority. They learn how to feel, how to play, how to relate with nature, how to say "I'm sorry."
I was teaching English for 5 weeks here, and I loved the experience!
The team is amazing, they will make you feel at home from the minute you arrive.
If you want to make the difference, knowing that you won't be just one volunteer, but part of the Poornodaya family, just go for it! ❤️

Encourage everyone to live this experience because It is incredible.
an holistic school based on 3 points, heart, hands And head.
They created humans And childrens with feelings, no robots like in the mallority of schools.
In adition, they respect so much the nature And teach childrens to be conscients with enviroment..., one example its that in the school os forviden to bringh anithing with plastic.
on the other hand, the food that they Cook for childrens is natural, fresh product And vegan food, incredible.
The organización is super good, i dont going to forgot this experience in my live

Ruben is a person who has marked a huge impact on every staff. Though language was a slight barrier Ruben's attitude and nature made the staff and students miss him badly. So it is imaginable how much Ruben matters to PV. We wish all the good luck to Ruben

I loved my time at Poornodaya and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to contribute to a great project while having a good time. From the start, Anish, Maya and the team were so welcoming and made me feel at home.

The project of having a holistic educational experience for children is great and Anish always encouraged and fostered our ideas, giving us what we needed to help and contribute.

There were several other volunteers present when I was there so it was a great opportunity to make friends. We had a kitchen which was amazing.

Overall, I would highly recommend it!
