Will I be working in a group or individually?
ALWAYS in groups of around 10-15 people consisting of activists from the local affiliated centre and student volunteers. Wherever possible you will work, travel and reside together. Sometimes, the team may be split e.g. between host houses, but you will always come back together.
There will be a balance of gender, language abilities, experience etc. and we will NOT be able to take any requests to be assigned to a particular team. Each team will have a team leader and all volunteers are expected to follow guidelines, cooperate and act in the best interest of the team at all times.

An experience of a lifetime, a real sense of how people that give us food, live.
A CERTIFICATE in your name, signed by people respected for their commitment to the ordinary Indian.
Will I get paid?/ Do I have to pay?
