Volunteering in North India

Travel in India for a life-changing experience !

Join our volunteers in India and discover an authentic country!

The country of Gandhi, the Taj Mahal and tasteful spices, all your senses will come to life and a simple task will become a wonderful experience!


Become a volunteer in North India and help one of the poorest population in the world.


To repeat a cliché: one cannot imagine what India is like before going there.


In order to avoid a culture choc, the first week is an introduction to learn more about indian habits, the language, transports, security etc.

Meals and Accommodation in North India :

Some of our programs are based in the centre of Delhi, but the majority are located outside the city, so that children can grow up in areas, which are less affected by pollution. You will have 3 meals per day. Breakfast usually consists of bread and tea, lunch and dinner of rice, lentil soup, seasonal vegetable curries and sometimes meat.

During your introduction week, you will stay with other volunteers in an apartment in Delhi.

You will share a room with 2-5 other volunteers.

Accommodation then depends on the program you choose, you will either a stay with a host family or you may be living at your place of work.
