Get opportunity to participate in local ceremonies and communing with the culture of Garhwal.
Above all, get the satisfaction of creating the future for many people.
We will be very happy to find people who can support us by knowledge and experience in teaching, organic farming, marketing, web developing, film making and also in preparing coaching and training for villagers. We will be glad to see those who knows about clay pottery techniques, weaving, knitting, yarn making etc. This is very beginning of our work and any pair of physical working hands will be very helpful :-)

In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
