Resources remain a persistent problem in developing countries, with inadequate investment in facilities, medicine, equipment and wages for trained health care staff to work in remote rural areas.

As with any volunteer program the nature of work depends on the needs of the community and in Dharamsala volunteers work primarily with women and children delivering health awareness education in basic first aid, sanitation and nutrition – at different stages of development including pregnancy. Make community health visits and with the assistance of local childcare centres check that children are up to date with vaccinations. Deliver health awareness training through small independent projects and give short talks in partner institutions aimed at empowering communities to acquire the knowledge required to make quality health decisions.

The house is comfortable and the location is beautiful with access to all local amenities. Accommodation is very communal – food is eaten together and bathrooms and living spaces are shared. The number of people you will share with depends entirely on the number of volunteers we have in the house, but the maximum number of people in a room is 4. And in case you were wondering we have western toilets and hot water.

As with most Indian homes, there is no washing machine at the iSpiice house. You will have to get used to the Indian way of washing your clothes by hand and drying.

Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared freshly and hygienically by iSpiice’s talented Indian chefs. Filtered purified water is also supplied at the volunteer house. We have fabulous cook that make authentic home style Indian food for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day (all of which are included in your Placement Fees). We mainly serve vegetarian food (lentils, vegetable curries, eggs, rice, and Indian breads) but can cater to any dietary requirements if you give us some warning.
