Mini Venture and Special Mini-venture programs in South India

Join the 2 to 4 Week Special Program in South India and get a wonderful opportunity to volunteer with Children at Home care centres & NGO run or in a normal school teaching children and go on a 3 days 2 nights weekend trip organized by the local team.

Accommodation and food will be provided at the project during the weekdays / while not traveling.

- during the weekend travel, we will stop at good restaurants for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

- participants have to buy and pay for their food

- Participants will have to pay for entry and camera fee where ever applicable

 

This program is especially suitable for volunteers who do not have time to commit for more than a month to volunteer abroad and to get a feel of real India -but would like to make some contribution and also travel on the weekends to some of the most spectacular places in South India.


Taking part in this Special Program in South India is a great way to make a valuable contribution to the society / disadvantaged children in the projects and also experience firsthand some of the most fascinating and beautiful parts of India.
 

During the 2 – 4 week period, volunteers are either allocated to work in Orphanage & School projects - Teaching/ Education projects where you will be spending time with children, doing teaching activities and also contribute in development activities such as painting and beautification work.

 

All volunteers need to arrive at Bangalore. Upon arrival volunteers are given orientation and also a tour to some major tourist attractions in the city. After completing the orientation and introduction about the project, you will be dropped at your project and you can start volunteering.
