Change lives through India Volunteer Care! Located in Pondicherry, India, IVC was created to connect volunteers with local NGOs who cannot gain the attention of a worldwide audience. More specifically, we believe that all volunteers have unique services to offer, so while staying with IVC, committed interns have the freedom and support to use their skills to aid a diverse range of local organizations, strengthening the overall NGO sector in Pondicherry.
Many of our programs focus on education and societal awareness which often leads to economic independence and quality of life improvement. Some sample programs include: teaching practical foreign languages, empowering rural women, IT tutorials for all ages, capacity building, elderly care, women’s counseling, safe sex practices, environmental awareness, caring for disabled children, advocating gay rights, and much more! Visit our website for more details, and please help us improve the lives of a deserving community.
