Type: Humanitarian & Community Development , Manual work / Construction,
Sometimes, you may only have a short time to spare to volunteer, and although you can't do everything, we want you to get the most out of your experience, and benefit the host community the best you can. Building and renovation work is a great way to contribute, and your good work can be continued when you leave, without the host community feeling a loss. This project includes a full guided tour of Taj Mahal in Agra and some yoga classes, to help deepen your understanding of Indian culture.
You will be working on manual development and renovation work as well as social awareness campaigns helping to involve the local people by making them aware of social issues, such as hygiene, healthcare and equal treatement of women. The manual work may also include an element of motivating and creating teams of village children to help clean up litter on the streets or help to plants trees. The social awareness work will really bring out your creative side, allowing you to lead workshops, events, street plays and other activities to spread awareness in the community and help you develop your presentation, communication and teamwork skills.
The project as a whole is varied and flexible. Usually mornings are spent on manual work and afternoons on social work to break up the day, however if you prefer one or the other, you can state a preference. Additionally, you have the option to volunteer in one of three locations; the pink city of Jaipur, the tranquil mountain location of Himachal or the beachside town of Goa. Either way, your weekends and evenings will be full, exploring ancient temples, sampling the local tea, or travelling to nearby cities with your fellow volunteers.
All projects are self-funded, but include accommodation, food, airport transfer and training. Click to apply and a project advisor will be in touch to discuss price and availability.
