Hello! If you are planning to come to India, you should really consider Sankalp Shake Hands program as a great option.

With them, you will be able to sleep, eat and hang in a beatuful house with western facilities and Indian environment. Clean and with enough space to watch a movie, play games and even do yoga! You can wash your clothes at home...

Food is fresh and delicious, so good! It is incredible to eat typical Indian food twice a day!

The staff is wonderful, because they everyone will look after you.

I recommend!

Working with Sankalp Shake Hands has been a rewarding and wonderful experience. The programme is well run, and it is an organisation solely focused on changing the lives of the people they are working with. The children are amazing, so eager to learn, well behaved and loving. Pranay and Amita are supportive and welcoming and the volunteer house feels like a home from home. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and it really is a great organisation and a fantastic way of seeing India and working within a community. I have learned so much during my time here and I only hope I was able to make an effective impact on the children's lives. I would without a doubt recommend Sankalp as it is a brilliant organisation focused on improving the children's lives and it offers a safe working environment and the chance to live and work with other volunteers.

The Street kids Program was very interesting. I really enjoyed participating overall. This program was different than others in which I have worked with and I believe it truly was a good experience. My experience was overall great with Sankalp. I love the culture and people here in India - specially the children. I love the children and the community! The volunteer house is beautiful and very nice. The food was very good. Staff and the team were friendly and helpful. The entire volunteer at the volunteer house was very nice and fun-everyone gets along very nicely. I would recommend Sankalp to everyone.

I had a great experience working with the Women Empowerment Program. It was challenging with the language barrier but ultimately this was an incredibly positive experience & I'm glad I was able to volunteer. I loved working with young women and I enjoyed their company. It was great fun teaching them the song "Hoky Pokie".
The food was delicious & the house was beautiful. During the hot season it was nice to have Air Conditioner. The Staff was incredible friendly & welcoming. I felt comfortable asking question & expressing concerns. I would definitely recommend Sankalp to others. It was a great experience for me.

I enjoyed the program and found the experience very rewarding. Although the facilities at the school are basic, the staff and the children themselves are enthusiastic and eager. Its well run and hopefully will continue to benefit the children and the wider community over time. The children were very nice and enjoyed very time with the children. The accommodation and food was perfect. I loved the food very much. The living arrangements were safe and comfortable. I do appreciate the extra efforts of the staff during the Christmas. Thank you Amita, Pranay and other staff members, you all made my stay very comfortable. I will recommend Sankalp to others.
