Diaspora Volunteers

The more we take the welfare of others to heart and work for their benefit, the more we derive for ourselves. This is a fact that we can see. - Dalai Lama


GoVolunteerIndia's Diaspora program is for volunteers of Indian descent who wish to return to the subcontinent. As agents of social change and reform, you will be able to investigate and explore your identity as you work to improve the lives of those around you through one of our NGO partners. You will be freer in your choice of living arrangements as you may have family or friends with whom you wish to stay. Discover your roots and give back through your service. We will work with you to design a personalized volunteer opportunity that is focused on your trip goals of self-discovery.

Volunteer SpeakSpotlight

The experience taught me a lot and really broadened my perspective. GoVolunteerIndia was very supportive the entire time and mixed with its volunteers to ensure that their placement fulfilled their expectation.
