41 Places to Volunteer Travel in India

  1. 1. 41 Places to Volunteer Travel Across India Compiled by: India Untravelled and The Alternative
  2. 2. Travel. Go solo. Volunteer. Talk to the locals. Go off the beaten path. Live in a village. Write about someone's story. Find a lake with no name. Climb a mountain. Try a dish you've never heard of before. Worship the earth. Share your darkest secret with a stranger. Go without a ticket. Carry a backpack. Give someone a hug. Take an impulsive trip. When was the last time you tried something new?
