India is an immense country.  It is the most populous democracy in the world and well known for its people, fairs and festivals, forts, palaces, architecture, temples, beaches, music, dances and arts. Indian culture is considered to be amongst the worlds oldest, richest and most diverse.

Hindi is the national language but English is commonly used. As within 2820 languages in the whole world, so many as 325 languages are spoken in India alone. It is said that dialect changes every 8-10 kilometer!

However, wide spread poverty remains a fact of life for around 40% of the population. No other country on earth has more people living in slum settlements than India.  Our volunteer projects are focused on children support, education and community building.

Reviews

This has been a very eye opening experience for me. I have done so many things that some people could only dream of. I couldn’t have had a better experience traveling to a poverty stricken country. The support was good and helped in a lot of ways.

I got exactly what I was hoping for when I booked this trip. I learned a lot about how to help injured and disable animals while also learning about a new culture. It was a whole new adventure everyday and I am already planning a second trip to India.
