Letโ€™s Take A Look Back At Some Amazing Volunteering Experiences in India in 2017

2017 has been good to us and our volunteering efforts in India have had a great run in this past year. While major events swept through the Globe and the Earth kept on warming, we witnessed thousands of genuine hearted do-gooders, from millennials to retirees flocking to India; Not just to take in the magnificence of this exotic nation but also to help build community impact as volunteers.

Our voluntary workers touched lives, brought ear to ear smiles to some little bundle of joys, bathed with elephants and in return, India gave them a travel experience of a lifetime.
Donโ€™t believe us? See for yourself the amazeballs experience and the fantastic ride that our volunteers have had in India in 2017!
