Short term volunteering

We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give. -Winston Churchill

GoVolunteerIndia provides short-term and mid-term opportunities for individuals who are interested in volunteering in India from 1 week to 3 months.  Challenge and define yourself in a broader context as you work for social change. Choose your cause and choose your activity.  Then, based on your skills and interests we will arrange an opportunity for you in which you will be most effective.  We will provide the groundwork for an optimal volunteering experience with either a local NGO or community group.

If you are an individual interested in group volunteering, we can arrange for you to be placed within a group.  This opportunity gives you the chance to interact with other international volunteers while working together to make a difference.

Use our Browse Opportunities feature to find an opportunity that is right for you.

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.
