Leeftijd 18+

The program

In this program our volunteers teach to local area families’ children, who aren’t able to provide good education to their children. The main tasks of a teacher in rural villages are improving the children’s grammar and computer skills, and giving health education.

About 8 to 9 million of the children in India grow up without any basic education and facility to join schools, because they are too poor. This mainly affects orphans, children of single parents and children with sick family members. With the help of our volunteers we are trying to decrease this number of uneducated children.      

Volunteers can participate in different cultural activities to enjoy and understand the rural India.

Volunteers can join our programs for a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 12 weeks.


India is a very diverse country with cultural and weather fluctuations. It is good to wear decent and comfortable clothes. It not only protects from the extremes of weather, but also protects you from mosquitoes. It is also suggested for the volunteers (especially for female volunteers) not to wear exposing clothes, as it is not preferred in Indian culture.

While going to project sites it is highly recommended that all our participants wear long trousers or pants and round neck t-shirts or shirts, which will help you gain lots of respect in the communities we work in. We also arranged Indian traditional clothes for our female volunteers (salwar kameez) that will cost extra small charges.    

What you should pack

Bring clothes, sleeping bags and sleeping sheets according to the local weather conditions of the project area. Furthermore you will need sunscreen, mosquito repellent, a headlight or a torch, a water bottle, a raincoat or an umbrella for the monsoon season, which is from late July to early September. The cold season is from late October to early March and the summer season is from early April to late June.

We do not provide any toiletries or towels, hence bring some along with your clothes. In case of extra requirements, they can be purchased from nearby markets.


In order to work as an English language instructor, we strongly recommend a tourist visa, which can be obtained by post from the Indian Embassy/ Indian High Commission in your home country.

Security and health

The volunteers’ security is our first priority! All the volunteer placements sites are perfectly safe. The volunteer house in situated in a safe neighbourhood and comes with a security (night) guard.

First-aid is available in the volunteer house, however any specific medication should be brought along with proper prescription.

We provide four tour programs for our volunteers on the weekends for which we charge extra cost:

Manali Tour

Manali is located on the banks of river Beas, the magical land is known for its natural hot springs and snow-capped mountains. It is one of the most beautiful hill station situated in north India.

Golden Temple Tour

The Golden Temple was built in the 16 century by Guru Arjan Dev Singh and is located in the city of Amritsar in the state of Punjab. As the name states, the Golden Temple is made of pure gold and thus attracting thousands of tourists from all around the world.

Afhaal aan de luchthaven op Gaggal Airport

At the starting of the project we will collect volunteers from the Delhi airport and take them to the project site and at the end of the project we drop them at the same airport.


Our large volunteer house in Dharamshala is basic but clean. It is situated in a safe neighbourhood and comes with a security (night) guard. The rooms are provided with bunk beds for four people. All rooms have attached or non-attached bathrooms with a toilet (toilet paper will be provided). The running water in the shower is cold, it will only be heated up during the winter season (late October – early March). A single room can be requested upon availability and with a small extra charge only by couples.

In our volunteer house, the volunteers have access to computers with broadband, a sky TV with English and Hindi channels, a film library and a book library.

Volunteers are responsible for the cost of their own phone call charges.

Eten & Drank

All meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) within the accommodation are native to the region of India and freshly prepared by our house chef. The meals are mostly north Indian curries and traditional Himachali food, so the meals can often be vegetarian. Non vegetarian food is prepared only on special demand and it will charge an extra amount.  

Moreover you can mention your food related allergies and it will be kept in mind while preparing the food.

We have water purification facilities on site that volunteers can use to fill their water bottles.

Internet toegang
Makkelijke toegang op de project site
Wat is er NIET inbegrepen?
Visum, vluchten, reisverzekering en vaccinaties zijn NIET inbegrepen in de programmakosten.
Vlucht tickets
De dichtste luchthaven is Gaggal Airport (DHM) in Dharamsala. We assisteren u met het vinden van goedkope vluchten naar India.
Naar het buitenland reizen is een avontuur en het is best om goed voorbereid te zijn. Plots ziek worden of gewond raken, annulaties of diefstal - een reisverzekering voor India biedt zekerheid en is een meerwaarde.
Als je de intentie hebt om als vrijwilliger aan de slag te gaan in India dien je eerst medisch advies in te winnen alvorens je eropuit trekt. Kijk de benodigde vaccinaties na voor India.
