Volunteer in India

Though India is the world's 4th largest economy and is seen to be continuously growing despite an ongoing recession and inflation, this second most populated country on earth still faces great challenges. Starting with social issues of education and gender equality, India also struggles with health, policy, and an impending water. For these reasons, you can see non-for-profits, NGO’s, and different charities that have been increasingly active over the course of the last two decades. 

With a large number of organizations operating in urban and rural areas of India, those who are looking to volunteer in different ways can easily find a place and cause to fit their skills and abilities. 

Needless to say, India also ranks high as a touristic destination, and for many good reasons. A modern view of the country reveals how complex and rich history is incorporated into its promising present. Its magnitude is followed by an ever rich culinary culture, religious history, and dramatically changing landscapes. Volunteering in a place like this can often provide an insider’s view on the happenings in this culture and place that are so foreign to us - making the decision to volunteer in India a clear advantage. 

Where to Volunteer in India

India’s popular volunteering destinations are the urban areas (though there are about 500 cities, volunteer programs operate mainly in Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta and Bangalore) but as many organizations focus on underprivileged social groups, those who are interested in a rural volunteering experience can find programs and projects farther into nature.

What to work in as a volunteer

Working in different parts of India, you can help different communities obtain access to better education, healthcare and medical assistance, human rights, and infrastructure. You can have a huge impact in each of these causes by choosing a position that’s right for you - based on your skills and interests. With that, if you feel closer to nature and environmental issues, you’ll find many organizations working tirelessly in wildlife preservation or sustainability. So - whether in rural areas or urban settings, projects and programs run by grassroots organizations can assist local communities and have a real impact on India's development.
