Volunteering abroad is an activity which is mostly practiced by students from high school and/or college during their gap year. This makes a vital reason to rope in the angle of budget traveling when volunteering abroad. India, one of the most popular volunteer and travel destinations, is one country that can offer the best of a travel experience in the most affordable price.
Volunteering India offers some really meaningful, safe and affordable volunteer programs all across the country. This includes, Delhi (the capital), Dharamsala (Palampur), and several different cities of Southern India.
Another, very important factor to consider, keeping in mind that the majority of volunteers are students, is the weekend activities and excursion options. Volunteering in India is an opportunity to not only help those in dire need of welfare and development, but also to explore this incredible nation and its wonderful cities.
It is for this, that Volunteering India offers specially designed travel and tour packages for volunteers to take, over the weekends. After working for their respective projects for the entire week, the volunteers get weekends off to explore and witness the lifestyle of India. They can utilise these 48 hours to explore different cities that are accessible over night. And, the best part; covering these destinations is highly affordable.
Covering some of the most popular cities of India, such as, Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Amritsar, Dharamsala, etc., these weekend trips are designed by the team of professional travel experts. This leaves the volunteer without any hassle to handle for itinerary building, bookings, transit, listing down sites to visits, etc.

Witnessing the best of each city, this tour is a highly customized and designed to suit the comfort of travelers. From intercity traveling, to hotel room booking, to fun activities, meals, and a dedicated tour guide all along the tour; the trip includes it all.
