India is a magnificent land of colorful traditions, rich culture, blissful landscapes, and spiritual ambiance. Millions of people travel to this amazing country, every year, from different parts of the world and get overwhelmed with the kind of lifestyle and hospitality they get to experience. However, that is just one of the ways to travel in India and all it provides is an overview of the country; not the in-depth reality. To witness the ‘real’ India, one needs to get a little bit closer to the locals and understand the way things function.
Then how to know ‘INDIA’?
Volunteering in India is one of the most effective ways to experience India, up close. When you volunteer under a project in India, you get to spend some quality time with the underprivileged and those who are trying to set their feet in the society, and also to help build the community. Not only do you get to help them in achieving their dreams, you also get to learn the hardships in life; which you otherwise would have never experienced from the comforts of your home.
And what is different in a volunteer trip?
The best part about taking a volunteer trip to India is that it gives the opportunity to travel the country to see its heritage, understand its culture, learn about its history, speak the local languages, try the home-made delicacies, and, of course, volunteer under a project. The biggest differentiating factor is being close to the natives, living amongst them, eating the way they eat, what they eat, and living a typical ‘Indian Lifestyle’ during your entire sojourn.
So what to expect from a volunteering program in India?
– Learning a lot about life’s reality and how to respect what we have.
– Immersing in different culture and traditions.
– Best of travel excursions around the destination of volunteering.
– A set of new friends, from different corners of the world.
