I am currently looking for voluntary work in New Delhi. i would like to work with young children between the age of 11years and up. and come to New Delhi in June 2007 to August 2007.
However i will be visiting New Delhi before that to make prior arrangements, which is why i am searching for organsiations now rather then arriving in India in June and wasting time in searching. i would be extremely greatful for any information.
There are many such organisations located all over india. However since you wish to visit only Delhi, you can appraoch Indian embassy in UK which will have (should have) a list of such organsations based in Delhi.
If you wish to know about such organisations in Chennai, may be i can assist you.
However, following are some organisations in Delhi but not sure how reliable they are!

They offer some pretty cool voluntary projects around the world. I'm not sure if there are any New Delhi projects right now, but new projects are always being added.
