My English is not very good.

I write for all to know that this organisation is very good for volunteer.

I volunteer in December 2014 in Jaipur and I enjoy a lot.

Made many good friends and worked at Special School. I am a trainee physiotherapist and I I work with kids with Autism.

Loved my exprience.

I miss the food and all my dear friends in India.

Active Internationals will always remain on top of all the lists of organisations I ever recommend. I am really happy that I participate in their program.

I booked for an 8 week animal rescue program in Jaipur, where I was aligned to an amazing place for working with animals.
I got hands on experience in animal care, and animal rescue. I was also the store-keeper for the medicines.

By he time I was in my 5th week of volunteering all the animals, specially the small rabbits became great friends.

At the volunteer house I made many international friends, who were from many different countries and backgrounds. The whole experience of living in such an international environment was great.

We went through a lot of workshops and activities. The staff was also very helpful. I will miss them all.

Not to forget - I am bowled over by the Indian food. Even after coming back home I try some recipes.

Love,
Malsyhka

I am naturally not so liberal in giving away any ratings.

But I am really indebted to Active Internationals for making me a part of such a wonderful program.

I volunteered in Jaipur (India) in a center for Physically and Mentally challenged kids.

This was a touching experience and made my realize the worth of volunteering in developing countries.

Once I am back home, I will promote this program among friends and family.

Cheers,

Colin Jr.

Great experience and satisfying efforts.

I found Active Internationals through their website by a casual google search. After getting a prompt reply of my inquiry, I was assured of the professionalism.

I booked for a 6 week volunteer program based out of Jaipur for three weeks and followed by Pushkar for 3 weeks.

I also booked for some short excursions in between.
It was great experience of understanding the value of volunteering in a country like India, which seems to be a fast developing nation and is yet missing out on small details of life.

In Jaipur, I worked alongside a group of 20 ladies who were mostly housewives and were getting trained to be beauticians. The skills they were acquiring would surely allow them to work in a decent salon or start their own venture.
My job was to ensure that they learn more out of it. How to start a business, customer care, female health, budget making were some topics that I touched upon. This made them transform into more confident women in a mere three weeks.

I then proceeded to Pushkar to work alongside the Snake Charmers - Kalbelia. These are amazing people who are nomadic. But they have been in Pushkar for around two years because of their livelihood. We touched various topics like - Water Conservation, Child education, family planning, women health, rights available to tribes etc.

Overall it was a well planned activity with great support from Active Internationals.

Trips to Jodhpur and Udaiour were so awesome.

One thing I still miss from India is the food and Chai.

More people must join Active Internationals and make their efforts a success.

This is my 2nd review of the day on my visit to India this February and I am going to make it long as it has to be special!

24 effective days in India where I chose to volunteer at Elephant Village with Active Internationals (They are working there even before it existed). After a week of volunteer work, I realized that the volunteers from different organization were keen to see what was I doing out there & after discussion, we got to know that they were told that they would volunteer at the village but no one provided them any information on what to be done, whom to meet, what to talk and things like that and eventually they became a part of my group. That is when I realized how important it is to come to India through a credible organization and Active Internationals made me proud enough that I have now left my job and planning to move to India for a Job (Again through Active Internationals)

It is important that the intention of the host organization is to facilitate you and not just earn money out of you.
