    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Ahmedabad, a World Heritage City recognised by the UN is the biggest city in the state of Gujarat, the western most state of India. The cost of living in this city is low, and yet it delivers a vast cultural experience. The street food scene here is diverse and if you were to rent or buy a used scooter, there's no better and cheaper way to commute within the city.

  • Help


    Our volunteer would be helping us do some nice artwork on the cafe walls, and they would be making a playlist for the kind of music played at the cafe. If the volunteer is a musician himself/herself, it would be great to have them perform and help us organize gigs at our venue.

    We require someone who enjoys music, preferably plays a few instruments, loves to meet new people , and one who loves to read and write ( For participating at Open Mic Nights) . At our cafe we have a large loyal customer base who we know by names, often remember their orders. We would love to introduce our volunteers to all these beautiful souls.
