iVolunteer India Fellow Programme

Reaching out to rural India

Calling adventurous young spirits for a 6-week life changing experience in
rural India. Here's a chance to make the most of your summer vacation, do
something you've never dreamed of and discover the other side of reality.

It's 6 weeks with a twist – no parents, no friends, mostly no TV, no
flashing billboards, sometimes no electricity, no swanky skyscrapers, no
fancy food, just REAL RURAL INDIA with real people living a real Indian
life.

What is India Fellow?

iVolunteer India Fellow aims to involve talented youth and provides them
with opportunities to experience, first hand, the development challenges
that rural India faces and explore ways to make a positive impact.

Since 2005, iVolunteer has placed 102 Fellows from Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore
and Chennai with 42 rural NGOs in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan,
Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Our Fellows
have worked on diverse projects in the fields of education, self help groups
(SHG), healthcare, microfinance, watershed management, livelihoods and
tribal issues.
