Volunteer India Udaipur: the capital of the former princely state of Mewar. Udaipur is referred to as the "Venice of the East” and City of the Lakes.  Located in the enchanting northern province of Rajasthan region, Udaipur astonishes travelers and volunteers alike with its matchless setting.

Rajasthan was dominated for centuries by the Rajputs, warrior clans and feudal lords who lived by ancient, violent codes of chivalry and death before dishonour.  The small, fierce kingdoms of this land supported the incredible lifestyles of the Maharajas.Today, Rajasthan is still dominated by its past, a feudal state with a largely rural population.  The land is harsh and frequent drought makes earning a living even harder.

Even with the beauty of the surroundings of the lake, mountains and fantastical palaces, there is real poverty in the city.  People are trapped by caste and gender discrimination. In Udaipur there are hundreds of thousands of impoverished, runaway and orphaned children living hand-to-mouth. These poor, forgotten children live in a different world. These children are simply overlooked in their society, left to defend and survive on their own or beg.  We work with a local organization to support these children and the social welfare programs for them. We offer placements teaching, helping in children’s day care centers and construction and renovation programs.
