    Description

    It's my great pleasure to welcome volunteers at our HOMESTAY- a safe & secure Homestay for solo women travelers, group of women and foreigners couples only.

    I want to create a unique women empowerment homestay program designed for solo female travelers, students, executives, businesswomen and foreigners couples traveling to Jaipur, India. Sometimes it can be hard work traveling in India as a solo female and so the idea is to offer a safe & secure comfortable home stay in Jaipur with all modern facilities, yet affordability.

    We are mainly looking for volunteers that can help with the online marketing of our Homestay and Travel Company, for new ways in which we can reach future guests and expand our business.

    Aside from my Homestay, my husband also has an independent film production company and alternative tour group. He is a cultural anthropologist specialising in working with the gypsy nomad tribes of the Thar Desert. We also need volunteers to help with video editing, YouTube and screenplay writing, please see below for more information.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers will have the opportunity to live as part of an Indian family, in a safe’ home away from home’ family environment. Travelers can learn to cook traditional Indian food and learn about every day life here in India and will have plenty of time to explore the beauty of Jaipur. We are happy to help you organise your way around the city, exploring the beautiful architecture, landmarks, Pink City bazaars, as well as local areas away from the usual tourist spots. We are located in South Jaipur surrounded by malls, restaurants, multiplex cinema. We are also very close to Sanganer- the world renowned manufacturing hub for block printing and handmade paper!

    Volunteers will also have the opportunity to learn more from my husband about his work as a cultural anthropologist gaining insight into his knowledge on the Gypsy Nomadic tribes.

    If you are also interested in my husbands cultural exchange tour exploring the Gypsy communities of the Thar Desert, we would be happy to discuss separately.
