India is a land with a history and culture as ancient as the first stirrings of human civilization. The country is vast and stretches from the perennially ice capped summits of the Himalayas in the north to the greener, tropical mountains and beaches of Kerala to the south. India has enchanted travelers for centuries, whether it’s the lure of the exotic wealth and spices or the traditions. Our Volunteering Holidays in India are based in Kerala, Southern India.

Despite a fast growing economy owing to the Dot Com revolution in the late 90’s, a large portion of the Indian people are impoverished and in need of basic human necessities. Access to clean water, sanitation facilities and quality health facilities still remain a distant dream for many – All this coupled with issues concerning women’s rights and education offers a great Volunteer work abroad in India for you to truly make a difference in the upliftment of the country and its people.

Volunteer Opportunities in India

Volunteering Journeys Volunteer Abroad Programs in India are based in South India’s tropical gem Kerala, famously known as ‘God’s own Country’. This magical state is surrounded by palm-lined backwaters, spice, and tea hills boasting a vast coastline that is slowly gaining a reputation as a surfing paradise. Our volunteer house is in the artsy bohemian and quaint coastal town of Fort Kochi in Kochi (also known as Cochin), Kerala. Being away from the frenzy of North India, Kerala is truly exotic and laid back making it a perfect for first time travellers coming to India who want the culture but not the chaos.

What makes volunteering in India at our base in Kerala is living in Fort Kochi. This off beat town has lanes filled with influences from a very rich history that began with Kerala’s flourishing spice trade, the greenery filled streets of present day Fort Kochi are lined with colonial era mansions, churches & temples, trendy cafes, emerging art scene, and fragrant spice markets. The best part is the eclectic a mix of locals living in harmony mainly Catholics, Muslims and Hindus, giving you a true flavour of the myriad of culture, religion and life in Kerala.

In addition we also have a very special volunteer project set up in Assam, East India where you would be living and volunteering on a tea plantation. For details on this email us hello@volunteeringjourneys.com
