Organization Description
We are located at Kotgarh (Shimla Hills) Mountain region of Himachal Pradesh in the Himalayas, a passionate effort to help the local people of the region to basic amenities like Medical camps, Children center, Eco farming, Agriculture support and improving the lives of children through continuous efforts by providing safe and conducive learning environments, providing learning and teaching materials.

We mobilize community members as our local volunteers to engage them through out the project.

We are seeking volunteers of any age to assist us in conducting these programs and improving the local lives. Youth workers or anyone with a passion to support and help local community .

Our projects are aimed to better the society and provide basic help to under privileged and who is in need.

The costs mentioned are from the time the Volunteer reaches India- Pickup by cab from Delhi International Airport, followed by transfer to the Hotel for a days rest and exploring the city, following day drop to the nearest State Bus Terminal to Shimla (overnight bus) where you will be picked up again by a cab and brought to our village, the drive itself is very scenic and good Himalayan mountain roads.

Your stay will be at our Homestay, which is located in the middle of our Apple Orchard (apple Blossom is from may - July, fruiting starts August - Sept) its a very comfortable cottage equipped with modern amenities, and proper heating and warm water facilities. The food served would be made by our help and cook, Breakfast Lunch And Dinner (meals would be Non Vegetarian and Vegetarian).

The Program currently is Teaching English or other subjects to a nearby Rural Mountain school which are walking distance from the cottage where the volunteer would be staying.

The volunteer can devote 2-3 hrs for volunteering time after breakfast, and then can have lunch at the cottage and be free to explore the beautiful valley of Kotgarh. There are many local sights to explore, a Trek to a peak at 13000 ft, a village walk, a world heritage Church and many other village attractions.

In case the volunteer wants to explore other far beautiful valleys and peaks in the higher ranges of Himalayan areas we can organise the same at an extra cost keeping in mind the time on hand of the volunteer, after the volunteer program.

Please feel free to reach out if you would like to know more about this program and travel we would love to make this volunteer and travel experience in India a memorable one.
