If you are looking to instill your travels with culture, exciting people, great food & discovery…

...then India is the destination you are looking for.

One of the reasons young people plan volunteering in India is the rare privilege of acquiring a lot of opportunities at a go because this destination is well loaded. It houses the oldest existing religion, offers diversity in language, people, climate and geography. Another aspect of the diversity comes in terms of festivals, attire, general etiquettes, religious practices, architecture and socio-economic status.

Волонтёрство в Индии подойдёт всем, кто хочет почувствовать себя по-настоящему нужным, и кто хочет приносить пользу другим людям. Ощущения просто неописуемые. Сотрудники Idex всегда рядом, очень дружелюбные и общительные ребята. Подскажут, направят, проводят, в общем никогда на произвол судьбы не бросят. Дом был всегда удобным и чистым. Еда необычная и очень вкусная. Собираюсь в скором времени повторить этот опыт, но теперь поеду в Непал или Тайланд.
