What Can I Expect?

Whether you are visiting India to work on a project as an individual, with business colleagues or your fellow students, most trips follow a similar structure.

Travel within India can be varied depending on the project and area. This can include travelling off-road via Jeep, day or night trains, trekking or, occasionally, coaches.   You will either stay in a variety of hotels or camp in beautiful locations. Whilst working on the projects, you will get the chance to meet local dignitaries, the Panchayat (village committee), children, families and other characters!

When not working on the projects, you will have the opportunity to visit cultural sites such as the Taj Mahal, Ghandi’s grave and the Lotus Temple, as well as experiencing stunning views of the Himalayas, National Parks and the varied wildlife India has to offer.

Most importantly, you will meet the communities directly affected by our work and witness lives changed forever.
