Safety is high on our priority list and we always make sure that you feel safe in all our placements.
Helping to Non-Profit Organisation's
Volunteering With India has as its founders a group of friends. With the help of our team members and volunteers like you we support local NGO's in their work for the development of community; we taught children in rural areas how to use the computers, and even their teachers, because part of them they did not know how to do it. We support working with street children, orphanage and the women empowerment movement. We also involved with aspects like theater education to school children and we were amazed in seeing the kids do so well in the drama we put in play. The Organization also deals with animal care centers.
All this work led to our desire to build an organization that can handle all this problems. Currently the organization is running successful volunteering programs in the city of Jaipur and in the rural areas that surround it. Our work is about helping children stay in school and give them a better education, and develop their talents, about helping women become more independent and be aware about their rights, about raising awareness about animal rights. We hope our work will help develop a more powerful, educated and aware society.
We welcome every person that wants to help us continue our work in the Indian society. Every help is needed and we hold great respect for every individual that wants to work in a volunteering program. The satisfaction that a person has in working for the benefit of humanity is the greatest one can hold.

Our volunteers give their time and money to conserve and protect the environment, uplift and build positive communities, teach children, and promote health, education, and ecological awareness in India.
Why do I have to pay for my volunteering experience?
We do not have any financial support or funding of any kind, so volunteers have to fund their projects themselves. The money volunteers pay, allow us to provide them with all the support and services. Volunteers will work in places where they are really needed. Also our partners are non-profits organizations doing meaningful, much-needed work in their local communities in India; in addition, the amount of volunteer fees are used as a donation to these organizations to keep the projects running. The donations are used for the facilities which the communities need. The donations go to help schools that are in needed, and to other materials that the community requires, like computers, study materials, clothe, play materials, and food. The community people and staff are also supported by this donation.
Is it safe?
India is a very safe country. Indians are very friendly with foreigners, and treat them with respect. Many people will greet you throughout India with the phrase "Namaste" (hello); the most commonly spoken local language is Hindi.
