To work and live in an Indian environment and make a change for the better in the chosen project and community, is a valuable experience that will last for a lifetime.
Participants get to choose between the following options:

Sabbatical and Gap Year:  3 months to 1 year

On the right there are links to a list of our current project partners and organisations for volunteering and internships in South India. However, new projects are opening up all the time, and if you don’t find your placement of choice here, please contact us for further project options in your desired field for volunteering or an internship. We will then try to find a suitable placement for you according to your wishes.

To place volunteers and interns, we set up their projects ourselves. Some places are remote, and we have to travel there to make all the arrangements. This can take a few weeks. We will get back to you with specific programme details that go on at the particular time of your placement period.

Suitable to be a volunteer/intern

Fee for Volunteering and Internships: € 520 / US$ 806 per month

1 month placement for volunteering or internship in your chosen field
1 month food and accommodation as described below

Local transportation between your accommodation and project location

Pick-up and drop-off upon arrival and departure from/to the given meeting point

Accommodation can be in the project itself, in an Indian Host Family, or in our volunteer house depending on your project location. You may have to share a room, sleep on a mattress on the floor, and use a common bathroom either Indian (bucket shower, squat toilet) or Western style; although often you will have your own private room and private bathroom with more comfort.

Food is local Indian cuisine with a mixed vegetarian and non-vegetarian diet and includes three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner). Please let us know in advance if you are vegetarian or have certain requirements regarding your diet, e.g. food allergies. We will then try to provide food according to your needs and wishes.
