"I spent 2 months with Mana Rishikesh in late 2016, teaching English to children in the city. I had an incredible time - the students were always excited to speak to me and I was welcomed so warmly by everyone I met, often being invited into peoples homes and to weddings and other events. The school is small so there is lots of scope to make a difference yourself, and the people around Rishikesh are some of the friendliest I've met anywhere in the world.
Jitender and Elena were fantastic hosts and looked after me better than I could have imagined - I was always fed and looked after and we had lots of fun too visiting places around North India. I left India with the fondest memories and lots of friends I now need to go back and visit!
I would recommend Mana Rishikesh to anyone who wants a unique and personalised volunteering experience. You will be completely immersed in Indian culture and will get to know a beautiful place, as well as fantastic people."
