Volunteer Abroad in India

header-image-world-endeavors
 
Why India?
From the immense snow-clad Himalayas to the buzzing metropolises of Delhi and Mumbai to the palm-lined beaches of Goa, India is a land of contrasts. With six major religions, dozens of major languages, and numerous racial and ethnic groups, it would seem that India is more like several distinct countries instead of the second most populous nation in the world. Its vastness defies easy categorization, but one thing is for sure: India is an experience like no other. Volunteers in India immerse themselves in the culture of this vibrant country, working side by side with local community members to help them build a stronger future for themselves and their country.
 
Program Information
 
Live in Goa, Rajasthan or Sikkim, India
Consistently ranked among India’s top tourist destinations, Goa is the ideal place for first time travelers and adventurers alike to acclimatize to a different culture. From caves behind waterfalls to villages hidden in sandy coconut forests, there is always something more waiting to be discovered. The mountain ranges and spice plantations enhance the beauty of this glorious state. Apart from its natural beauty, this former capital of Portuguese India and home to various UNESCO World Heritage sites has a lot to offer in terms of architecture with churches, cathedrals and forts abounding. 

The Royal city of Udaipur located in the state of Rajasthan is commonly called the Venice of the East and nicknamed ‘the city of lakes’ is located in the princely state of Rajasthan. Primarily known for its art and architecture, it has temples dating as far back as 950 AD and palaces dating back to the Rajput era. Fans of The Jungle Book and James Bond films may recognize Udaipur as the birthplace of Bagheera and the location for the Roger Moore starring Octopussy. Drawing several million tourists a year, it has loads to offer in terms of art, architecture, culture and cuisine. 

An area of unspoilt natural beauty, framed by snow capped Himalayan peaks, the capital of Sikkim, Gangtok, reflects this tiny state’s extraordinary ethnic diversity. In the crowded city which spills precariously down a ridge, Lepchas (the region’s original inhabitants) live alongside Tibetans, Bhutias, Nepalis and Indians from the plains. Though now full of modern structures, Gangtok’s “Shangrila” aspects can still be experienced in pockets of the city and in its alpine environs.
