What we need


We were very lucky so far – many volunteers have been with us and really enjoyed being at Janwaar Castle. Please feel free to connect with them if you consider to come and visit. If you want to join us, please drop an email to hello (at) janwaar-castle (dot) org – Thank you! We are […]


Technology needs to be state-of-the-art and it needs to be robust. For us tablets, smartphones and mifi-devices are crucial. We seamlessly integrate them in our programs and the kids are using is as they’ve used it for many years. No introductions needed.
