volunteer in indiaVolunteering in India with GVI will open your eyes to a rapidly developing country, filled with a rich culture, traditions and beautiful landscapes. However, there are major community development issues and a huge gap between the rich and poor. It is estimated that 35% of India’s population are living below the poverty line and 61% of children have disease causing germs on their hands due to a lack of proper hygiene practices.

Whether on your gap year, career break or volunteering holiday, you can make a sustainable long-term difference through a variety of different project focuses:

Please note that GVI has a Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy that is implemented on each program. As part of the policy, participants will be required to complete a DPS check, Police Clearance, or a National Background Check where necessary, and to comply by the policy.

UPDATE: We’re excited to announce that we are in the progress of developing a conservation project in India! To express interest, and to stay up to date with developments, please submit your details here.

By deciding to volunteer in India you grant yourself an opportunity to experience a new way of life! Our projects take place in Kerala, one of the highlights of India and a must-see destination. Project work takes place around the city of Kochi (Cochin), a port town since the early centuries offering fascinating snippets of history and culture.
