Life Changed forever

The TTW program in Delhi was just amazing! The staff was really helpful and sweet! The orientation was very interesting and informative. I really ended up using the tips and guidelines they told me about there. I made so many friends from all over the world whom I will never forget. My only regret is that I could only come for two weeks. I was almost in tears when I left India because I had to say bye to my amazing host, new friends and the sweet little angels I was teaching in the school. I’m happy I choose TTW and India for my travel abroad. I will definitely come back to them again very very soon.
I would recommend this project to anyone who want to travel to India but has a very low budget but does not want to compromise on safety and quality. The amount they charged was really very less as compared to some of the other programs that I had looked up while looking for a project in India.

How can this program be improved?
It was an amazing project. Obviously everything can be improved but personally I did not face any issue which I feel can be improved.

First International Trip

Initially before coming to India, I was very scared. I had never been out of my country and on a spontaneous decision decided to go on a solo trip to another country. When I arrived in India, it was a totally different case. After a tiring flight, I was received by Aman who was my coordinator. He treated me to a yummy Indian meal and then dropped me at my homestay. I was staying with one of the teachers in the school I was volunteering in. She was an amazing host and showed me around the entire city. Even in the school I was met with a very friendly environment with very cute children always coming up to me asking questions about my country. Overall, I feel India is a part of me now and I have a family with ttw and my host Miss Dipti whenever I go back to India again.

How can this program be improved?
They should try to make larger groups of volunteers. I was volunteering in a group of 3 and maybe it would be more fun in larger groups.

Best experience ever

My two week in Delhi were really amazing. I met so many people and made so many friends. We went on a weekend trip to Kasol which was amazing. It was such an adventure. Would definitely recommend everyone who visits Delhi to go Kasol.
Also when you are in Delhi, don't forget to try Butter Chicken. Delhi is famous for this dish and it is literally the best thing that you can have.
There is so much to do and so many things to see. Travelling to India is a must!

Changing lives

When I decided to travel abroad and volunteer, I never could've imagined the kind of impact I would create. We don't realize how much potential we have to influence those around us.
I came to Delhi through TTW for a Volunteer project with the responsibility to teach children. Apart from teaching English, I also took music sessions since I had informed my coordinator before coming to India that I could sing and play the guitar. I was surprised by how talented these children were. Most of them could sing and they would often use empty boxes and tables to make music while singing. Most of the children came from slums and could not really afford to take proper classes or instruments. Some of the other staff told me that these students are pushed to take up such extracurricular things so that they don't get influenced by the bad things around them such as drugs and alcohol.
Throughout my project, I tried my best to be a role model for these kids, motivating them to study and work hard.

I had never thought I would impact no many lives by my impromptu decision to travel, but the respect I saw in their eyes and how they used to came me Bhaiya (Elder brother) really changed my perspective about so many things.

My travel to India

I volunteered abroad for the first time this summer in India. India is such a beautiful country with so many people, so many things to see and so much to do. My four weeks of stay in Delhi were not enough to do everything around me. My job was to teach English to children and it was such a beautiful experience. I also helped make an Instagram page for the NGO I worked for and they really appreciated it. Overall my visit to India was amazing and I will remember these memories all my life.

The Tarzan Way was also awesome. They supported me with everything and never made me feel alone. I would definitely recommend coming to India through them.

Visit to India

I visited India in Feb 2018 through TTW and it was definitely one of my best experiences ever. I met with so many people here and made friends from different countries. I would definitely recommend coming to India through The Tarzan Way. They really take care of each participant and make sure we are comfortable. Having a support like this in a new country really made me feel safe.
I would love to come and see India again through them :D

How can this program be improved?
They took really good care of me and the other volunteers. So I have no complaints.

Delhi meri jaan

Delhi is such a beautiful city with the best of everything. I went to the grandest of monuments to learn more about India's history and the craziest of clubs with lots of dance and music. During my stay in India, I was lucky to accompany one of my coordinator from The Tarzan Way to an Indian wedding. What a crazy experience with loud music, grand ceremony, unlimited buffets of food and so many people. I really understood what it meant by a big fat Indian wedding.
I would really recommend everyone to travel to India and experience things like these at least once.

How can this program be improved?
They were perfect!

Impactful!

I was a volunteer in Delhi in August 2017. I was hosted by The Tarzan Way in their volunteer house with almost 10 other volunteers from different countries around the world. I ended up becoming friends with all of them and we still stay in touch. Aryen, my project manager used to stay with us and he was really helpful.
He was there to pick me up at the airport when I landed. He then helped me get an Indian SIM Card and my money exchanged. Everyone from The Tarzan Way team was young and energetic. They would organize events like movie night or Photography walks for the volunteers to take part in. We even called in a Yoga teacher for some sessions on the basics.
Overall my program was really memorable and I ended up doing a lot of new things. This experience is something I'll never forget.

How can this program be improved?
They plan some amazing activities for the volunteers, they should continue doing this and keep increase the number of activities they have
Yes, I recommend this program
