Short term group

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, itís the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead, anthropologist


GoVolunteerIndia provides two types of short-term group volunteering opportunities from 1 week to 3 months:

  • We offer groups of 4 to 20 the opportunity to volunteer together in India. Whether you are a university or community group interested in engaging in development issues, a group of professionals wanting to use your skills to support a cause, or a family looking to spend a volunteer vacation in India, we will cater to your needs. We let you choose the location where your group will be volunteering, the issue with which you will be working, and the length of time you will be staying. In short, we provide as much assistance as your group requires.
  • We also form groups for individuals (which can include individual gap year/diaspora volunteers) who would like to work with other international volunteers on a collaborative project. This opportunity allows you to meet other like-minded individuals whilst working for social change. Contact us if you are interested in being placed in a group and specify if you are interested in working with other volunteers who have similar skills or are of the same profession.

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.
