A Broader View Volunteers Corp

I recently returned after spending two months in India as part of the ABV program in Jaipur. I was challenged every day by new ways of doing things (in a good way). Sushila, the director of the Care Center, found lots of ways to put my skills to use including an organized event to showcase students exhibiting safe childhood performances of dance and skits. The support provided by ABV staff was truly amazing. So much more than I could imagine. I have seen others in different programs with different support and I can tell you ABV staff does a terrific job. They guided and helped me throughout my stay. I was extremely happy during my stay in Jaipur. The ABV staff and their pre-trip information were spot on.

Sankalp Volunteer Society India

I was at Sankalp Volunteer last summer, I was 16 so quiet young to go on my own, but Sankalp Volunteer gave me such a safe feeling. At the school I had an amazing 2 weeks with a lot of learning about the kids and the environment they live in. It gave me an other perspective and a more clear vision about their lives. Above all of that I had a lot of fun and I recommand this to everyone.

Sankalp Volunteer Society India

I had an absolutely amazing experience in India with the Sankalp Volunteer Society. This experience truly made me a better person, taught me new things and has allowed me to see the world differently. I was able to discover a completely new culture and community, which was very nerve racking at first but they welcomed me with open arms and made me feel comfortable with in seconds. I was able to meet new people which have now become friends I cannot do without. I took part in the school program where it was amazing to see the things you were able to teach them and see how they progressed so much over such little time, due to their want to be there. They have received an opportunity they wouldn't have been able to have if it weren't for Sankalp and by taking part in this opportunity; it will be beneficial for you and the kids.

Kaya Responsible Travel

I had an awful experience while volunteering in India with a project organised by Kaya Responsible Travel.

I was not picked up from the airport in India as was previously arranged with the company (which meant that I was left in a dangerous and scary situation as a lone traveller). Many of the other volunteers that I subsequently met who had also booked with Kaya had similar issues.

Additionally due to poor organisation and communication between the UK team and the team on the ground, I was only able to do my volunteering project for 5 days out of the 2 weeks that I had paid for (which was a substantial amount of money). I was promised that there would be English speaking members of staff once I was in India, however there were none. this meant that I was unable to understand anything that was said, which made the volunteering project pointless. When these issues were raised with the team (both in India and the UK), these concerns and complaints were dismissed with no apologies.

Very disappointing for a company that charge a substantial amount of money to arrange volunteering opportunities for those that want to help and provide for others. I had initially picked this company as they had promised to provide certain unique experiences for volunteers abroad, however they did not deliver on these promises. There are many other similar companies out there that provide a similar service to Kaya, and I would definitely suggest searching these out if you want to get more out of your money (rather than being let down and feeling quite helpless while in a foreign country on your own).

A Broader View Volunteers Corp

I loved my experience in India Jaipur. Some little culture things were frustrating and some other things were extraordinary. There is a mentality of “that’s just India”, but thing can change for the better if the adults could open their minds to the possibilities. Although there are not many resources, volunteers can do and bring so much. Every person has a talent that they can bring to the table, but that can only happen if there is organization and adults who desire to better the project one volunteer at a time with a broader view I did find this balance. The children at the program are beautiful and I wish I could give them the world, but they taught me that unconditional love is the best thing a person could ever give them.
Some tips I can give for other volunteers: Don’t have expectations. 10 minutes really means 45. Having an Indian sim card is great if you don’t have an international plan. Be patient with everyone and yourself.
