VOLindia launched a 3-week part-time program in Delhi for the winter of 2009.
A select group of 25 volunteers (the Cohort) got together for 3 weeks, from 21st January to 7th February. They were divided into teams with each team serving a particular work project for the stipulated time.
Campaigning was the tone for the winter program and creating awareness about certain issues was the aim of the volunteers. After the first few days of orientation and training the rest of the weeks were spent in action-oriented fieldwork. The volunteers were required to come up with creative and innovative ways to conduct interactive sessions or perform street plays in different parts of the city and in front of a varied audience. The volunteers chose the second option and street plays on the concerned issues were performed at different venues in Delhi.
The tracks for the programmes included child rights and disability.
