Volunteer in India
Come and immerse yourself!
As a volunteer in India you can discover the colourful and spiritual country of contrasts with it’s incredible food, festivals and welcoming hospitality. You’ll never be the same again.
Why volunteer in India?
India’s challenges are the world’s challenges. The country’s economic power is growing on the daily, but with this growth comes an increase in social inequality and environmental degradation. India continues to be the focus of international development initiatives, run and supported by local NGOs. Local change makers attempt to solve challenges that institutional organisations have not been able to solve, by using innovative and creative thinking.

But India is so much more than social inequality and pictures of poverty. India’s unique gifts of beauty, diversity and grit make it a place like no other. It is a land of so many cultures, cuisines, contrasts, and communities thriving amidst constant change. Between the ancient and the modern, traditional and commercial, rural and urban, rich and poor, volunteers in India find themselves inspired with a new perspective on life.

Hyderabad, capital of the unique state of Telangana
Telangana is the newest state in India, after it separated with Andhra Pradesh in 2014. Hyderabad, as the capital city, is constantly growing and developing. It is located in the south of India, and provides a great starting point to explore the country before, during or after your volunteer experience.
Hyderabad is an incredibly city that offers an interesting mix of cultures and cuisines. From the buzzy streets of the Old City, to the serenity of the big KBR park and the bordering neighbourhoods of Banjara and Jubilee Hills, to the commercial centres in High Tech City and Gachibowli. Hyderabad is a bit of everything with lots of things to do.
