VOLUNTEERING IN INDIA
The India experience begins the moment you step off the plane and stays with you long after you depart. The mixture of India’s languages, religions, spectacular architecture, and distinctive cuisine will rattle you, and leave you wanting more. New Delhi is a multidimensional metropolis where evidence of a layered history and modern society abound. Be sure to note each and every smell, sound, and sight as you explore all that the city has to offer, because we promise that when you return home, you’ll miss them all.
India has a buzz about it, a pace and a national character all its own. The complexity that you’ll find when you volunteer in India offers you an experience of incomparable historical and cultural depth, and you’ll live out this amazing adventure against the backdrop of some of the most incredible landscapes and cityscapes you’ve ever encountered.
One thing that you’ll notice as you wander New Delhi, is the stark socio-economic contrast among its neighborhoods, indicating the city’s rapid and unequal growth. As part of your volunteer service work in India, you’ll work alongside one of a variety of progressive local organizations to support efforts to address those discrepancies. The work you do will help pave the road to better lives for countless members of a fascinating, but often polarized culture.

VOICE FROM INDIAN COMMUNITY
“The children’s English has improved and they are noticeably happier and more confident when working with volunteers.”
“The impact is really positive because it is the English language which keeps the children as candidates for mainstream educational programs. Every child has benefited by attending these classes with the volunteers.”
“When our students get the chance to interact with people from foreign countries, their desire to engage motivates them to learn English in order to share their thoughts and feelings with the volunteers. They understand that the volunteers accept them with their disabilities. This really improves their confidence and brings happiness in their life.”
