Why should I pay to Volunteers?
Although volunteering is a great way to give your time, it does come with a cost in order for you to live comfortably while volunteering within our program. Your fees will help cover the cost of paying our staff (driver & cook) along with accommodating you with a safe, comfortable living environment; which include daily amenities, two meals a day, and internet access. A partial sum of your fee will also help our programs continue to run and help the children we serve.

How do I choose a program options?
Make sure you look at the two different kinds of programs we offer - The "Volunteer & Travel" option has set dates throughout the year and it is the most popular option available. Under this option there are four different programs for you to choose from. If none of these options fit your schedule you can do the "Volunteer Only" program which allows you to volunteer anytime for as many weeks as you like would like.

Do I need experiences, special skills to be a volunteer at Sankalp?
No, you don't need any special skills. We are happy to welcome everyone that is enthusiastic and driven to help other people. It's necessary to speak English since it is the language we use to communicate, but it's perfectly fine if English is your second language. You'll also be able to improve your level of English here, as you'll be speaking it constantly.

How it is safe?
At Sankalp we make safety a high priority for each and every volunteer and staff member that join our program. Our program has been running for several years and we have had the great joy in welcoming hundreds of volunteers into our program, please trust that we have extensive experience in caring and protecting all of our volunteers. This includes safety within the house, transportation provided by us, safety at the program locations, and any emergencies that may arise. We do not conduct any program that could in any possible way jeopardize the safety of any volunteer or staff member. We are very proud of our ongoing commitment and provision of safety for all that join our team. In the past 8 years we have had hundreds of volunteers within the age group of 16-65 years of age, with a maximum of 30 volunteers at the house, with no miss-happening to anyone in our program. In order to continue our priority and contract with safety, our organization maintains very set rules and regulations. We ask that you join our program with adherence to the set rules and respect them appropriately for your own and others personal safety.


We really enjoyed the teaching program and I think we were able to improve the kid’s English skills a bit. However, it would have been more valuable if we had stayed longer then two weeks and may be learnt more phrases in Hindi. In general it was a nice experience especially for me as I do not have background in teaching. Accommodation and food was good. It was easy to go to the center of the city, super market was nearby. The volunteers’ house felt really like home. The staff was very helpful; we always got help and advice when needed. Thank! The overall impression of the program was very positive and I would recommend this program and organization for others. India in general was a great experience and I will definitely come back to India some day.

I participated in the teaching govt. School program and found it to be a very valuable experience. It was challenging with the language barrier between me and the children but it was not impossible. My overall experience has been great. I have made some good friends and seen some amazing places. I feel that I have gained a lot personally from this experience and hope that others have gained from having me here. I feel it is an experience I would like to repeat again soon!! I felt totally safe in the community and have really enjoyed getting to know the area. I really enjoyed the interaction with the staff. I found all to be very helpful and friendly and not at all intrusive. I did feel like part of the family here with staff & volunteers. I would definitely like to recommend it.
