Locted in Puducherry, India is involved in bringiing skills and knowlege to the people who need thorugh international and local volunteers
India Volunteer Care was born out of a genuine concern for the suffering that is apparent in the area where we live and work. We observed the growing popularity of travelling abroad to do volunteer work in India and we wanted to use this trend to benefit the underprivileged population the NGOs in our region serve. We found that funding restraints, language barriers, and housing shortages meant that many small, local NGOs had to reject potential volunteers because they had no way to manage them. Additionally, we were disheartened to see the huge prices attached to many larger volunteer placement organizations when we personally knew how affordable living and working in India can be, especially for volunteers coming from abroad. VC was created to make an avenue through which international volunteers can come and offer their services. We comprise of a small group of like-minded local people who aim to identify and place international volunteers where they are most needed: in emerging, small scale, grassroots organizations that lack the necessary means and organization to attract and accommodate international volunteers, but would benefit greatly from outside assistance and knowledge. There are a multitude of NGOs here that are desperate for voluntary help – whether it is from skilled or unskilled volunteers. e operate out of the genuine wish to maintain, strengthen and expand the NGO sector within our region. We believe NGOs are an essential part to India's development and it's effort to bring more people out of poverty. We aim to keep our costs low and our doors open wide as to attract as many volunteers to our region as possible. We can all work together to make the lives of those around us improve. India Volunteer Care is a non-profit organisation registered in Puducherry with the Indian Trusts Act of 1882.
