I wanted to write to say that I had an extremely positive experience volunteering in Jaipur with Sankalp. Amita and Pranay were lovely hosts. I learned a lot from them about Indian culture which helped me immensely on the rest of my 3 month trip throughout the country. The accommodations were good, the food was amazing and the other volunteers were all great. I think sometimes volunteers go into the experience with very high expectations that they will come and teach for a month and somehow that will change people's circumstances. The children going to this school will gain a positive experience from it because they are there surrounded by other children, playing games and enjoying themselves. The smiles on their faces everyday were beautiful and deeply joyful and that is a direct result of the work Amita and Pranay have put into this program. I understand some people may have been frustrated at the lack for formality or structure but I found the experience very reflective of the sort of chaotic harmony I saw throughout India. If you are looking for a good cultural experience and you want the chance to bring happiness to children, this is a good organization to choose.

I volunteered for 4 months in 2008/2009. The experience was life-changing. I did real, meaningful work at an orphanage and bonded with Amita, Pranay, the children, and my fellow volunteers. Three very important reasons to select this program 1) affordability 2) safety 3) the caring and professionalism of Amita and Pranay. Don't pay more to a middle man to volunteer somewhere, this is the real deal.

I would recommend this program to everyone who is interested in volunteering in India. I wish that I was able to stay longer and hope to contribute my time in future. The food was delicious and accommodation was in a safe and central location. The living space is comfortable and in a quite and peaceful area. This is important as the city of Jaipur is quite busy. Teaching English was generous experience at a local school. Thank you Pranay, Amita and Sankalp Volunteer organization for a wonderful experience.

First off, I want to give Pranay and Amita a huge shout out and thank you two for giving me the opportunity to volunteer in this program.
I had the most amazing experience I have ever had while teaching at the school and working at the orphanage. I made some really good friends with the volunteers who stayed at the house and thought the living arrangement was terrific; better than I expected! I will never forget the undeniably giving people who I worked with.
Finally, I believe that this trip changed my life. I will never be able to go through a day without thinking about the kids I met. I became attached to many of them and built relationships I never thought I'd be able to have. Being able to love someone more than myself has made me a better person and I hope to come back to see the kids again.
I would recommend this trip to anyone looking to build relationships and make changes in a positive way!

Thank you,
Gabrielle

Really very very frustrated with the chil teaching program. Pranay and Amita, really they are not volunteer. They start the business only to earn money in illegal way. Real volunteer help to the Poor Child for their health, education and economic. Its shop to earn the MONEY ONLY. These couple income is not big but they purchase the Big Property in Jaipur and make big Black Money.

I am come here before one week. really not feel happy with the program. I can't ask anything from Pranay.. because he don't know english and Amita can't understand proper english. Surprise!!!!

They are not volunteer... they Just Open the Shop to earn BIG MONEY or TAX FREE money.
