Why volunteer in India?
India is undoubtedly a land of stark contrasts and few countries on the earth can compete with the enormous variety that this country has to offer.
North to south and east to west, the culture, language and people are remarkably different. India represents an ideal travel destination with its unique mix of cultures, exotic landscapes and vast collection of natural and historical wonders found nowhere else in the world.
In less than 20 years, India has become the second fastest growing economy in the world, making significant progress particularly in the fields of information technology and industrialization. However, while India’s metropolitan cities can compete with the best in the world, millions of people are still living below the poverty-line, eagerly awaiting a helping hand.
