Volunteering India has been committed to provide meaningful volunteer and internship opportunities in India since 2004, while placing over 2500 volunteers in India. We have been working with the local communities in India, by sending volunteers to projects which need help and support both in form of manpower and support in various other ways like, by donating books, stationary items, computers, painting, landscaping, building and construction etc. The money volunteers pay is spent on various things and while most part of the money is spent on making the trip for the volunteers possible in India, we still make it a point to help the communities and projects we work with.

Volunteers live with local families, which also supports them in various ways. Volunteering is a ‘win win’ situation for all, the people volunteering get to help the people while exploring new cultures, customs,and meeting new people and make friends for life. The community and projects benefit by getting support from the volunteers and support from Volunteering India.
