On this adventure of a lifetime, you will witness and experience firsthand, the incredible diversity of India. This road trip takes you through several different regions; from the foothills of the Himalayas, to the vibrant cities of Delhi, Dharamsala and Rajasthan, and the beautiful and relaxing beaches of Goa. On this trip you will get to see everything that India is best known for – colorful and bustling streets, awe-inspiring temples and delicious food – as well as see what lies off the beaten path.
Aside from the must-see tourist destinations, you will also visit local communities where you will have the chance to volunteer while learning about their lives and culture.
Slums Outreach Project: Many of the children living in the slums around Goa cannot afford to go to school. This project aims to organize fun, educational activities for these children in order to inspire them to learn and give them some much needed attention. You’ll play games and sports, sing songs and do some arts-and-crafts, all aimed at teaching English to the children while giving them the attention and love they need and deserve.
Schools Renovation: Volunteers will help to ensure a positive learning environment through renovation and beautification of local schools. Tasks vary depending on the need of the school in which you are placed, and may include painting, decoration, construction and groundskeeping activities.
Internet: All hotels are equipped with WiFi, as is the volunteer center in Goa. Remote locations such as home stays and camping will not have Internet access.
Laundry: Laundromats are available in each city.
Accommodations: Varies depending on the location. All locations provide shared, single-gender rooms. All hotels will have access to hot showers. Private rooms can be provided on nights where the group stays in hotels for an additional fee. A homestay will also be included in the Himalayas, and there will be a desert camping experience on the desert safari. During the volunteer week in Goa, participants will stay in shared rooms in a volunteer center which is fully equipped with computers, a kitchen, hot showers and a garden. Please note: Because of the nature of the Road Trip program, please expect to find some degree of variation between the locations’ amenities. Please note that example accommodation photos are displayed below.
Food: In most locations you will be provided with 3 full meals per day. Please note that in Udaipur and Goa, 3 meals per day are provided during the week and 2 meals (brunch and dinner) on the weekends.
