India has evolved in many ways over the last few decades – socially, economically and politically, but despite this evolution and development, even in this 21st century, there are certain parts of the country that are underdeveloped and people face major problems in living their lifestyle.
Volunteering India, an international volunteer placement organization based out of India, provides affordable and most meaningful volunteer programs in the 2 different locations and has collaborated with local NGOs, public & private healthcare centers, underprivileged schools etc. If you wish to be a part of the changing & developing society, then join us and experience the difference.
Here are a few reasons why you should be a part of Volunteering India.
1. An opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the underprivileged.
In India, there is an extremely large number of people surviving below the poverty line. These people do not get the privilege to bear the basic necessities of life. Kids hardly attend schools and reside in the underdeveloped areas. If you wish to make a change and want to add little happiness in their lives then you should undoubtedly think about taking up a volunteering trip to India.
Being a volunteer, you can either choose to teach kids in the schools or spend some time in taking care of them and playing with them. Play a significant role in their lives by providing them with proper care, love, and warmth. Also, you can be a part of the Women Empowerment Program and help them to be more independent, guide them to communicate in English as well as teach them computer skills and help them to be more confident to earn a livelihood. Volunteers can also provide them with vocational training.
2. Live closely with the locals and experience the goodness of authentic lifestyle.
While volunteering in India, you will get the opportunity to observe the lifestyle of the locals very closely. How simple and authentic life they live! This helps in connecting the volunteers with the locals and build a strong bond as well as an everlasting relationship. As a volunteer, you’ll get the opportunity to immerse in the Indian culture and absorb its richness.
3. Get a chance to volunteer with elephants.
Elephants are nature’s most magnificent creatures and play an important role in the country’s history as well as associated with religious and cultural heritage. If you love being with animals, then Volunteering for the Elephant Program will be apt for you. Visit the elephant village in Jaipur and spend time with these gentle giants.
They are usually looked after by the Mahouts and you will be helping them in feeding and bathe the elephants, and also get an insight into rural life.
4. A wide range of affordable programs.
Volunteering India offers a wide range of affordable and meaningful programs. If you love to work with children, then you can either be a part of the Street Children Program in New Delhi or the Teaching Program in Palampur. Students who are looking forward to doing something worthy during their summer break, can join the Summer Volunteering Program. For those who have a time crunch, we have a specially curated Mini Break Program, and for medical & pre-med students, there are medical internship opportunities as well.
5. Most budget-friendly way to travel.

Your volunteering trip will be the most cost-effective and you will get the opportunity to explore India while contributing meaningfully towards the society.
