Experience Incredible India as a volunteer! Our project offers a perfect gateway to immerse yourself in the rich culture and diversity on offer in India in just 2 weeks. Your experiences will be unforgettable as you visit “The Taj Mahal”, one of the 7 wonders of the world, the princely state of Rajasthan, and to the pristine beaches of Goa where you will volunteer at our construction and renovation project.
On offer is a unique opportunity to travel as a volunteer through this project which encompasses the experiences of two separate programs in one fortnight.
A rich and rewarding experience, you will visit palaces, forts, temples, places of historical importance, and beaches. Indulge yourself in the fascinating Indian culture and way of life, learn to cook traditional Indian dishes and create authentic Mehendi art. For your own personal benefit, learn how to use the techniques of yoga to regenerate your body and mind.
