About Us

Origin
All of us have heard much about Saving Mother Earth. International summits have been taken place in the name of ‘Environment’; articles, poems and books were written; Leaders, celebrities, news channels and many other have said much over this ‘Environment’ matter. But the question is who comes forward to do something? The right answer would be “Myself”. Yes, everyone should come forward to do something for the society we are living in. We each have a responsibility to make a difference in the world.

Quite similar to the saying “The journey of thousand miles begins with one step” Every great work has made possible only by a few individuals; a few individuals who has got the burning passion to change things to better. Here is a group of a few of such beings who dedicated themselves for the common good of down trodden and neglected around them. And, of course, their very thoughts shaped out Volunteering India.
 
The Organization:
 
Volunteering India, a subsidiary of the Limra Earth Welfare Society (Regd. under Rajasthan Societies Reg. Act No.78, 1958) is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental volunteer organization which aims at all round development of rural India. The organization is based at Jaipur in Rajasthan, India.
 
The organization is actively involved in:–
 
· Protection of Environment;
· Rural and sustainable development;
· Rainwater harvesting;
· Promotion of wastelands and
· Women-child and family welfare & education.
 
The activities of Volunteering India are completely non-profitable and provide wide range of serving opportunities to enthusiastic youth and optimum utilization of human resources in rural areas.

The Team
A group of friends with similar ideology forms the core of Volunteering India. This group which consists of persons with different professional backgrounds administers all the activities of the organization. A team of dynamic and educated executives put into operation the plans proposed by the core committee. They move ahead in the direction of educating rural population about various issues relating to environmental protection and sustainable development. Apart from these, volunteering India has a competent network of skillful youth to undertake various projects of survey, social education and awareness.

Location
It is quite appropriate to mention here “Charity begins at home”. Well, Volunteering India at present concentrated its activities mainly in Rajasthan, a north western state of India. Volunteering India believes in motivating and educating individuals in a way they can put their whole hearted efforts towards the true aim of human life — serving the society that brought us up, shaping up our surroundings into a better perspective. Living for the benefit of everyone and setting oneself as an example for the future generations.

Volunteering India has been formulating schemes to bring together those who are young at heart and zealous to learn, have fun, travel and at the same time passionate to attain the priceless satisfaction by doing something for the benefit of mankind. In the perspective of this core concept Volunteering India is promoting the concepts of eco‑tourism and rural tourism for those who are eager to invite exciting and meaningful experiences.

Volunteering India arranges workshops, orientation sessions to give you an overview of the culture, historical background and the ecology of the place where you choose to work as a volunteer. This would take you to the heart of Indian rural life and on the other hand helps us in motivating the spirit inside you to make an attempt and bring about a viable change in the world we live in. This rebounds on us and gives us the inspiration to keep forging ahead on the roads of sustainable development.

"This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in."

When I first arrived in India, it felt like every little thing was so different from back home- the sights, the sounds, the smells, the people, the animals; every moment was a new adventure, and I was always excited to see what would happen next! I volunteered teaching English to rescued child laborers in a rural village near Jaipur.
