  • Description


    Hello everybody!
    My name is Om. I am a lover of nature and my village located near Khirsu, Uttarakhand, India.
    I am in my mid 30s, and want to make a difference in my local area.
    So we started with my family and the help of friends a project which link eco-tourism including eco-construction as accommodation, natural place for relaxing and big park to have a meditative walk for exemple.
    In this project I would like to involve volunteers on purpose to bring international ideas and show to my local friends new way of doing.
    Many people have migrated out of the countryside and now we are left with a lack of workers to tend our traditional lands.
    Welcoming volunteers would help to get our dream done and show to the people that the dream life is in the countryside not in the city

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will have the chance to see the beautiful hills around Khirsu, join in with touristic activities I organize myself and the opportunity to get introduced to the local culture and history.

  • Help


    Help with the project would be primarily creating a (meditation) garden, planting, help with guiding adventure activities for tourists, interacting with locals and tourists, exchanging ideas and cultural background....
    Help would be mostly 5 hours per day and 5 days per weeks. I am looking for volunteers who could stay one week minimum but it will be much benefit to stay longer up to one month and more.
    In exchange for your help I offer basic accommodation and tasty, traditional Indian food.
    So, if you would be interested or want more information please contact me and hopefully we will see each other soon!
