Your Itinerary for the Volunteer program

Pre-Departure Assistance & Booking The Trip

Once your application form is submitted with the questionnaire and we found you suitable for the program, our team will contact you for depositing the program fee. Then, once our bank confirms the receipt of your fee, we will initiate the documentation process regarding your trip. You will get assistance in booking your flights, applying for your visa, informing yourself about needed vaccinations and insurances, packing for the trip and other essential things.

Orientation, Jaipur Sight-seeing & Hindi Language Class

In the morning our in-house manager will conduct your orientation about the Indian culture, program, country, people, beliefs and language. Then your Jaipur sight-seeing will start followed by the orientation. In Jaipur sight-seeing you will visit magnificent world heritage sites like Hawa Mahal (wind palace), Jal Mahal (water palace), Amber fort, Birla temple, Nahargarh fort and some other places if the time allows. Here the meals are on you during your visit. The next day will be a free day for you to travel by yourself or arrange a tour by us for the rest of the places. The night stay will be in the same volunteer house.

Observation Day, Program Visit & Meeting the Beneficiaries

The next morning your visit to the program is fixed and this would be your first day as ‘observation day’ at the program area. The coordinator or any Aii Group staff will arrange a visit to the programs we have, to have a sense of environment and working conditions. The volunteer gets to know all the other volunteers who are working there already and can have a little chat about their findings and suggestions to start with. The local staff and you will meet the beneficiaries with whom you are going to work. The local programs are real and they really need volunteering assistance and care. This is an important day for the volunteer to observe the program and to see that where they fit in and what skills they possess to help on the program, because the next day would be your first volunteering day.

Meet your Host Family and get to know the local Area

Just after the program visit, if you have chosen to stay in a host family, the coordinator will give you a ride to the host family. Here you will meet your host parents, brothers and sisters. The house mother will show you your room and will introduce you to the family members and will let you know the rules of the house. You can have a look in the house and around. In the evening you can go to visit the nearby household grocery store, vegetable & fruit market and other necessary stops. If you have chosen to stay in the volunteer house, you will be staying in the same premises for the rest of the time of the program.

Program Completion

The last Friday of your volunteer program will be slightly different and fun-filled. Take group pictures, selfies and show your gratitude towards the Aii Group staff and other volunteers for the cooperation, affection and support. You can also arrange a small party with your host family on the last day and spend some emotional moments. Meet all the friends you made during your stay and thank them for your time together. On the last evening of your program in the camp, we will celebrate it with some candles, balloons and cakes. This will be like a thanksgiving session to you from the Aii team for your time, efforts and dedication. Then you will be free to do your own activities.

Suitable for


Typical day

Stay in a Host Family

After waking up, you will have an India Masala tea and an authentic Indian breakfast breakfast with the rest of the family members, then you will leave to the program. You will meet your supervisor there for your schedule of that day and start your work. At lunch you can go back to your house and eat with your family or you take a lunch-box with you. After finishing the program you can walk back home, because mostly the programs are at walking distance. Enjoy your evening with your family and neighbors and have a walk around. You will have your Indian dinner and sleep well. This is how a typical volunteer day looks like. 

Stay in the Volunteer House

If you stay in the volunteer house, you will be waken up by the house in-charge to have tea. Then followed by a Yoga session jointly with other volunteers, you will proceed to have breakfast. Your tuc tuc will arrive to take you and the other volunteers to go to your programs. You meet your supervisor there for your schedule for the day and start your work. At lunch you can walk back to your house or take a lunch-box with you there. After finishing the program your tuc tuc will arrive to pick you up and drive you back to the volunteer house.

Your Work in the Orphanage

Orphanage volunteers have two options to work with. 

The first is going early to the orphanage at 9:00 am when the children are in school, so at this time the volunteers can help the support staff in taking care of the operational work in the orphanage like cleaning, washing dishes, clothes, managing furniture, dusting, cutting vegetables, cooking food and many more works related to regular routine of the orphanage. After the children arrive back from school you can engage yourself in helping them finishing their homework, problem solving, story telling, sports, outdoor games, dance and music and any other things that can give you and the kids joy and fun. So your work will start at 9:00 am and can finish up to 6:30 pm. If you want to make it short, you can do this by going to the orphanage at 2:30 pm when the kids come home from school. If the orphanage needs you there you have to manage your schedule accordingly. 

Working days are from Monday to Friday.

Details on Arrival

Flight Information & Updates

By the time our team will take flight information from you. It is the responsibility of the volunteer to inform us via e-mail about the flight details, carrier, date and time. In case there is any delay or sudden change in the flight schedule it's the volunteer's duty to inform us immediately. We will share our Whatsapp contact number for instant contact. Once we get the details of the flights we will transfer the details to Aii Group India team for arranging your pick-up from Jaipur Airport. Please notice that all India program volunteers must arrive in Jaipur only. From here after orientation & Jaipur sightseeing they will be transferred to their respective locations.

Pick-up from Jaipur Airport & Transfer to the Volunteer Camp

Once you arrive at the Jaipur airport you will meet our team member with an Aii placard and your name on it. You can proceed with them to the Aii Jaipur volunteer house for two nights stay and sightseeing in Jaipur. In case you don't find anyone immediately in the airport hall, please don't panic; wait for some minutes and they will be there. In the worst case, if you don't find anyone after a time, contact the Aii Group head office number that are shared with you in the pre-departure kit. That number is available 24/7. You will be staying in the volunteer house with the volunteers. The next day would be your orientation and Jaipur sightseeing.

Drop at Jaipur Airport

On your last day in India you will have enough time to pack your bags and for writing a feedback followed by one minute video feedback session. Now you are free to roam around on the local market to shop souvenirs for your friends and family if you have enough time left for the flight. You will be dropped at the Jaipur airport at the time of your flight and from here you are on your own. Say a final goodbye to the team members and here your journey ends with a lot of memories and life lessons. Namaste!!

Free-time activities

The weekends are totally off and you can spend them as you want. Relaxing, travelling, visiting, enjoying, clubbing, washing clothes etc., the choice is yours. You can take travel excursions and information from our local coordinator and form a group with the other volunteers to go on group excursions; the cheapest and best way to wander. Our local coordinator will always be there with you for assistance, support and supervision.

We have a lot to offer on weekends due to the location of the city Jaipur. This comes under the most famous travel circuit 'Golden Triangle' that covers Delhi-Jaipur-Agra. The program is situated in a very famous city, ‘The Pink City’ Jaipur, Rajasthan. 

The city has its heritage value & has more than 20 heritage sites like Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, Albert Hall, Birla Temple, Jal Mahal, Nahargarh Fort, Jaigarh Fort, Amber Fort etc. So the volunteers can visit the nearby places & all of these places are in the maximum radius of 15 kilometers from their stay. 

The City Jaipur is also in the center of the state Rajasthan and beautiful excursion sites are also nearby and accessible from public transportation like Buses, trains & private taxies. Volunteers can visit Pushkar (The Desert Safari), the only Brahma temple in the world and also can experience a night stay in tents in the desert while having dinner & watching live folk dance. They can go to Ranthambhore for the classic ‘Tiger Safari’ on cantors. Another nearby option can be Bhangarh, the only haunted site approved by the government of Rajasthan. Udaipur ‘The Lake city’ can be another option to utilize the weekends. All the arrangements can be done by Aii Group on the volunteer’s request.
