We are a group of people with one goal; doing good work. We believe in "alleviating physical pain" as an objective net good. So for us, good work is helping alleviate suffering of those who can't help themselves.
Our farm is the home we have built in Himalayan Foothills to accommodate recovering injured stray animals, people who want to do good work, and an organic garden to provide a little bit for for all of us. The farm also supplies our product line which in turn supports our recovering animals. This is a karma yoga center, meaning "The Yoga of Work". Our focus is on the work we do.
We believe that every action for survival has a suffering footprint, especially any consumption. So, we believe in mindful consumption and making our survival purposeful by alleviating suffering.

Volunteers get to live in a small rural Indian village and work closely with locals. They have the opportunity to attend local functions (weddings and birthdays) and practice their Hindi.
We are a stray animal rescue, organic farm, and social enterprise. We are looking for people who will help care for animals at our stray animal rescue center. There is also an opportunity to participate in the farm and help make products. The work is very physical and involves a lot of manual labor.
We require a minimum of 2 weeks for volunteering, and are looking for people with specific skills to do projects here.
These skills include:
- Animal Welfare and Enrichment (veterinary experience preferred but not required)
Please allow up to one week for us to reply to messages.
We are friendly and open people. We love to have discussions and learn from others. However, if you refuse to respect the work, the space, the people on the farm, our rules, or our intentions for the farm, you will be asked to leave.
We are not a guesthouse. We do not guarantee access to all our facilities, continuous wifi, or any other services. We expect you to act like a guest in our house.
We are a karma yoga center. We do not demand silence but we expect you to respect the intention of the place and keep your focus on why we are here. This means loud, frivolous discussions or "noise for the sake of noise" are not welcome. This is especially true at meal times. We expect you to respect this you and if you cannot, you should rethink your decision to apply.
We live in rural India. This means that you will not be able to dress in whichever clothes you wish. If you feel entitled to wear tank tops, tight clothing, see-through clothing, shorts above the knee, or low-cut tops despite local custom then please do not apply.
We have rules. We have the responsibility for many lives on the farm, and we also live here full time. The rules all have a reason, but if you are the type of person that does not like to follow rules then please do not apply.
What you can expect from us:
Respect and open-mindedness.
An opportunity to help animals.
Thoughtful discussion and insight.
Clear instruction and direction.
If it isn't working out for you, you are free to leave. If it isn't working out for us, we are free to ask you to leave!
We have homestays around the village for volunteers. You would be expected to share your room with one more person. Meals are provided. Plan on arriving between 9:30 am - 12:30 pm on your first day.
Our village, Dhanotu, is a typical rural Indian village. There are two small shops and a handful of houses surrounded by fields with stunning views of the Himalayan mountains! Life here is simple and quiet.

Pourquoi workaway.info autorise-t-il certains hôtes à faire payer des frais ?
Dans les pays en voie de développement (où la plupart des hôtes sont engagés dans des associations caritatives ou des programmes de développement au service de la communauté locale), certains de nos hôtes peuvent demander aux workawayers de faire un petit don pour aider la famille d'accueil ou l’association (souvent moins de 5 dollars par jour). Workaway n'autorise cette demande de don que si le don va directement à la famille ou à l'association et s'il ne sert qu’à couvrir les frais de séjour des volontaires. (Les annonces où l’hôte demande des frais seront clairement identifiées dans la liste d'annonces).
Nous n'autorisons en aucun cas les annonces d'agences, d’intermédiaires ou de projets qui nous semblent vouloir profiter des volontaires.
