Experience volunteering in India…


We are intimate & personal: 
We aren’t corporates; our local teams in each destination offer personal service and give attention to each volunteer.

Tailored experience: 
We are not a one-size-fits-all company so we’ll tailor each trip to your needs.

Quality in service:
Our local teams take pride in giving our volunteers the best experience with attention to detail and hard work. Our programme fee ensures this quality in service and continuity of projects.

Safe travel:
Our volunteering locations are carefully handpicked with safety in mind. On our projects we prioritise health and safety at all times making it ideal for females, first time or younger travellers.

Volunteer work with experts:  
Depending on what programme you choose, you can expect to volunteer abroad with leading scientists in marine conservation, top doctors, expert teachers and development leaders.

Expand your mind: 
Learn new skills for both personal and vocational growth. Our volunteer opportunities can help to enhance your career, build self-confidence, and broaden your mind.



  • “Volunteering at the schools was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Once again the friendships you create are irreplaceable. Admittedly, the first few days were scary, in the sense that my partner and I were only 18 & 20 yrs old and we were teaching women and children a language that was not their first. However the persistence and willingness of Indians is not to be tested. Each of our students put in 100% and naturally we became very personal with everyone and these women and children taught us much more. We came out of this experience with more than we had ever anticipated. It can’t be put into words just how much we learnt from volunteering. Ever aspect of our lives and mindset has changed.”

  • ‘I think it was quite an eye opening experience to kind of see how people live and enjoy their lives very differently to what we do probably in UK. Even though comparatively they didn’t have as much, the children still came to school with a smile on their face and they were really keen to learn. They were ever so happy and always had a smile on their face regardless of the circumstances that they are living in, and I think that was an amazing experience for us to take back. We have comparatively much more wealth in the UK and we have much more available at our fingertips. Yet we were quite not so happy’

  • ‘We decided to volunteer as part of our family vacation. It was the perfect balance: making a contribution but not being asked to do too much, with Volunteering Journeys staff with us every step of the way to help, support, clarify, etc. I was also impressed that they didn’t feed us a line about how we were changing the world in a week; I knew going in that *we* would be the ones most changed, and the staff’s perspective’s was the same: we were making an impact by showing we cared and sharing experiences, which hopefully meant something to a lot of people.’
