Hi,I am a simple and self motivated person.I am running a small hostely of BnB and a backpacker hostel,along with my family,In the city of kolkata,India.Meeting new people,making friends and giving them the real picture of our culture are all we wanted to do.And it has been a wonderful journey so far,as we have been able to successfully do,what we had wanted to.Our BnB is 3yrs old,where we have hosted people from different countries and started hostel very recently in 2020.
The best reason for you to consider our place would be not one but few. One of which is,our family is one of the OLDEST in the society,hence very well known and that gives you an immidiate recognition and attention by the neighbours. Second would be, our family is very simple and accommodating,you could be rest assured of having a gala time with us,feel secured,loved and accepted.And the best part is,this gives you the real knowledge of an Indian family,we don't have any secrets,neither put on any false masks.
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You would be having a life changing experience. Very few of the paid travellers or volunteers even get a chance to,experience both the rural and urban diversity to the core, in a country such as India.Where each aspect in life is a spiritual lesson.
Perhaps,you will also learn to develop or find out your own skills little better while doing social work.And could be the part of the change,you wanted to see in the society.
Please don't contact us,if volunteering is all about a free trip for you. As we really welcome our volunteers as our family members,expect mutual respect towards each others growth.
This is an unique volunteering project,we are going to start to develop our semi urban and rural areas. The project includes,general maintainance,lot of interactions,teaching and staying at a remote place. Please read the details below and connect only if it is relevant.
