Volunteering at Mothers House & Missionaries of Charities


If you want to do voluntary work at Mother Teresa's missionary (78 A.J.C. Bose Road, Kolkata – 700016) and ideally would like to walk to work, so here are some information , which might be of some help to you.

First of all the Mothers HouseMissionaries of Charities are two different buildings, they are nearby on the same road but little distant apart and metro/unerground/tube train connectivity won't help you.

Mothers House is located at 54A, Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Rd (commonly known as AJC Bose Rd or Lower Circular Road), Kolkata - 700016.

Missionaries of Charities is located at (also known as Nirmala Shishu Bhavan),78 A.J.C. Bose Road, Kolkata - 700016

If you intend to stay real close the closest accommodations would be at

-Monica House on A.J.C Bose Rd, opposite Shishu Bhavan, and at
-Mr. Gomes house behind Sishu Bhavan.
-Bely Guest House – right next door to Mother house, above the WEB Internet cafĂ©. There is no need to book rooms in advance. Dorm beds should cost around 100-150 rupees a night.

" Monica House " is not a Hotel , its an accommodation service provided by St.James Church exclusively for the volunteers for the Mother's House"

The contact number of St. James Church is +91 33 22847483 . I suppose they will be able to communicated better about the accommodation availability.

Also do look at the map link below it will give you a better idea of Missionaires of Charities, Mothers House & Sudder St.

Sudder St. do have lots of budget hotels, specially for backpackers but it would be little far of, though there are advantages and disadvantages of the place.


Advantages being its nxt door to Market Area, its open till late and the underground metro train connectivity is just next door.

Disadvantages being the connectivity to AJC Bose Road would b a little tricky apart from if you choose to walk you can cover it in 20-25 mins.

PS : Informations are mostly given by a CS Kuntal Das, which I thought is useful.

I have heard about this church a lot. For building more churches in USA, church mortgage in USA products is a great step. What do you say?
