About Program

India is a country of great contrast and fascinating traditions. You can find this nowhere more so than in Delhi and Jaipur, the two cities in Northern India famed for captivating architecture and history. These cities also have their fair shares of problems, among them homeless children, gender discrimination and rampant poverty. There are many organizations that are tackling these problems and successfully empowering the disadvantaged. RCDP has been working with these organizations to make their programs more meaningful and effective. The programs were all started by the grassroots communities and solely for their own benefit. When you join any of the programs, you will help them achieve their project goals while also exploring the country that is colorfully, noisy and full of history and astonishing diversity. India is after all like no other country.

Our programs in India include Orphanage, Street Children, Teaching, Healthcare, HIV Awareness and Women Empowerment.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

Mini Adventure Program in India- A Complete Package

I decided to join the RCDP Mini-Adventure Program and went through their web profile and found myself very much addressed with their program and enrolled myself to one of their program.

The project started with an introduction about Indian culture and language, which was really interesting. Throughout this program, I learned a lot about Indian culture. We went to visit the orphanage and it was a great experience during my volunteering period, I was involved in different activities like teaching computers and games for kids which was very challenging and rewarding for me. They made me part of their family and I learnt a lot about Indian culture from them. In the evening, we went to visit different places in the city and watched different traditional shows that are very common in streets which were very interesting.

After finishing my 8 days in the volunteering program, I was so intrigue that I joined for further 4 days mini-adventure tour. With that program we went to Agra where we spent 1 night-2 day stay where we participated in a Festival. In the same day we visited many historical places like Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, Taj Festival, etc. which were splendid. The food and accommodation was excellent.

After Agra, we went to Jaipur where we spent 2 nights-three days and a wonderful time. We visited all the historical places in the town and we even were invited for dinning with an Indian family. They hosted us and gave us an unforgettable evening giving us the taste of Rajasthan and its culture. Next day we went to visit many different places such as Habba Mahal, Jantarmantar, Zoo, Museum, etc. Everything was perfect. We had fun dancing and looking at different shows that were presented specially for us which gave me a fantastic impression.

My coordinator in India was really helpful. He organized everything nicely for me. The staffs were very nice and helpful at all times. The overall experience was wonderful learning about Indian culture, their customs and life style. It has really created a good impression of RCDP and its Management skills. In future I am planning to do this program in Nepal.

What would you improve about this program?
I would totally recommend this program, and I don’t think there needs to be any changes in the program or host family.
