Involvement Volunteers International

I’m truly thankful for the past two months I’ve spent in this special country. I’ve met so many beautiful and inspiring people and have been exposed to a completely different way of living and have seen a completely different appreciation for life. I will cherish the memories, the friends and all the unconditional love and smiles I received.

I loved my experience in India Jaipur. Some little culture things were frustrating and some other things were extraordinary. There is a mentality of “that’s just India”, but thing can change for the better if the adults could open their minds to the possibilities. Although there are not many resources, volunteers can do and bring so much. Every person has a talent that they can bring to the table, but that can only happen if there is organization and adults who desire to better the project one volunteer at a time with a broader view I did find this balance. The children at the program are beautiful and I wish I could give them the world, but they taught me that unconditional love is the best thing a person could ever give them.
Some tips I can give for other volunteers: Don’t have expectations. 10 minutes really means 45. Having an Indian sim card is great if you don’t have an international plan. Be patient with everyone and yourself.

International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)

I was in India for one month. During this month I was able to learn so much about the culture, customs, and people of this great country. IVHQ offers an orientation week that allowed me and a group of volunteers to learn more about this history of India. After the week was up, we were all off to our volunteer sites. I worked as slum teaching in New Delhi. It was an experience that I would gladly repeat again. The homestay that I was placed at was with Chandni and Mohit. These beautiful individuals made my Indian experience that much more meaningful. They welcomed me in and from day one I felt like family. I can't believe my month is already over, but I'm looking forward to returning in the future and I'd definitely do it with IVHQ.

International Volunteer HQ (IVHQ)

Namaste!
There's so much to say about this program. First of all: I highly recommend it to first time travelers. If you're young, want to meet people, live with an awesome homestay family, and do some volunteer work at the same time- then IVHQ is for you.
I was lucky enough to spend six months in India working in one of the slum schools of Faridabad. It was a wild and magical experience. The school itself is disorganized, loud, and overwhelming at times. But, that's what makes it volunteer work a memory to last forever. These kids need you more than a highly functioning, well funded school. Here, you really get to know the children individually. Through laughter, the best Hindi you can muster, art, and cultural exchange you see the children for the beautiful beings they are. What I highly recommend to other volunteers is to do some basic research on teaching if you've had no prior experience. That made a difference for me when I started my first week of teaching. I did a lot of projects ranging from science, to math, to writing poetry. The thing with all of those topics is that it's still teaching English- even just talking to them is teaching them something.
As for my homestay family... well, that was the best part of the program. I really lucked out with the house I was placed in, and at the end of my six months I considered them to be my family. They took such good care of me. Always seeing to my needs and cooking me delicious food. The hardest part about leaving was saying goodbye to them.
India is forever part of my heart now and I already can't wait to go back.

Global Vision International (GVI)

I volunteered to do construction work in Kerala, India during the summer of 2016. It was one of the best experiences of my life, so good that i was only home a month before i had booked another two trips with GVI again! My first week was spent renovating the outside area of a school for children with special needs, an extremely rewarding experience. In the evenings there was always an activity for us today since this was the under 18's group, such as martial arts or indian cooking classes. My second week was spent in the district of wayanad hiking through the mountains getting to see the most beautiful views and camping in the evenings. My time in India certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone but with the fantastic support from the staff and my fellow volunteers whom i am still in contact with, the thought of being so far from home wasn't so bad.

If you're looking for an under 18's trip this is definitely the one i'd go on!

On one of the days, we visited a local school to conduct a health check up. The school did not have proper walls and the coordinator told me that for some time, the school did not have a proper roof. Inside one of the classrooms, I saw 15 little children bundled up in scarves and jackets, eager to learn. It warms my heart to see the dedication and passion these children had for their education. The children were so respectful and stood up and greeted me when I entered their classroom. It was a privilege to do a health check up for these children. I checked their height, weight, and eyesight. Most of the children were underweight. It was inspiring to see how happy these children were regardless of the condition of their school or their financial backgrounds. They were determined to study and progress their careers. Despite the fact that these children were from humble backgrounds, their lunches were all homemade and healthy. During my stay in India, I often observed that middle class and upper class children ate a lot of unhealthy refined flour products like Maggi, biscuits, and namkeens for lunch. Despite the fact that these children were from humble backgrounds, their lunches were all homemade and healthy. This was also great to see. I truly enjoyed visiting the school, and I wish I had had more time to visit another one of the schools.
