SWAP's India Volunteer and Travel program combines the best of both worlds; taking in the sights and sounds of India while giving back to the local communities. This 2 week program will include both a volunteer placement in Jaipur as well as 2 weekend excursions; a trip to one of the seven wonders of the world, the Taj Mahal, and an overnight camel safari in Pushkar!
As a volunteer, you'll be participating in a community outreach program that helps the needs of women and children. Volunteering will take about 5 hours per day, with plenty of downtime and opportunities to do cultural workshops, like henna classes, yoga sessions, Bollywood dancing, and Indian cooking classes. Daily volunteer tasks include:
Get real support from the local staff during your trip! They have been hosting foreign participants for years and will make your volunteer placement as comfortable as they can.
All volunteers are placed in accommodation on location at their placement. The facilities feature all of the modern conveniences like laundry, hot water, free internet, purified water, fridge, dining room, and a recreation lounge. A maximum of 4 participants (same gender) are placed together.
