Volunteer in Varanasi
Volunteer & Travel: Varanasi is a 2+ week travel experience where the participant volunteers in the city and travels during his/her free time and weekends. The major focus on this experience is on an intense volunteering experience.
Through this travel experience, we aim to provide a taste of the city's culture, an insight to the local traditions and lots of adventure while adding value to the society.
Varanasi, the Spiritual Capital of India, a city as old as time itself, as rightly put by Mark Twain, 'Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together'. During the Muslim rule through Middle Ages, the city continued as an important centre of Hindu devotion, pilgrimage, mysticism and poetry which further contributed to its reputation as a centre of cultural importance and religious educatio

We've kept only one location since the purpose of this experience is majorly on volunteering and experiencing a local culture. The travelling pace is slow and it's more about immersing oneself into the roots of one location.
The participants joining in for longer duration can add more locations and reach out to us for a personalized travel plan.
