About Program

We offer you or your group meaningful volunteer work opportunities with local non-profit program by way of interaction with local communities through customized work experiences, cultural activities, and home like stay. Once you take part in our volunteer program in India you will have a life changing experience which will allow you the opportunity to work, help and support people from a totally different cultural environment. You will be able to utilize your life experiences and experience in a way that will benefit others less fortunate than yourself.

We also provide the unique combination of doing meaningful volunteering work and exploring the country in weekends. We have created 3 to 6 week special programs that include various travel activities, including a camel safari, tiger safari , trekking to the Himalaya, and visits to Agra, Pushkar, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Dharamshala, Ranthanbhore and more!

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.

Commitment to Transparency

I recently involved in the Street to School Project in Jaipur, volunteering with three other international volunteers through this NGO. Prior to joining, I conducted a thorough check of their legal status and found it to be in good standing. The remarkable aspect of volunteering with this NGO is that it is entirely free; volunteers only cover expenses related to accommodation, meals, local transportation, and other services provided by a volunteer travel company and I directly paid to this company, not to NGO. The organization boasts a rich history dating back to 2006, with a diverse array of volunteers hailing from different nationalities, showcasing its widespread appeal. What's truly noteworthy is their commitment to transparency – they readily provide contact information, including emails and phone numbers, for past volunteers from one's own country, enabling potential volunteers to gain insights from authentic experiences. My involvement with the Street to School Project has been deeply rewarding, and I applaud the organization's dedication to creating a positive impact through such a well-structured and transparent volunteering experience.

Remarkable six-week Volunteer Journey

Last week, I successfully completed a remarkable six-week volunteer journey in the vibrant city of Jaipur, India. My heart is brimming with gratitude as I reflect upon my transformative experience with Sankap Volunteer Society. Throughout this time, I was fortunate to participate in two distinct yet equally impactful programs, leaving an indelible mark on my heart.

The first chapter of my adventure unfolded in the embrace of an orphanage, where I dedicated three weeks to nurturing and supporting these incredible children. The profound connection I formed with these young souls defies verbal expression; it's a sentiment that can only be fully comprehended through firsthand immersion. Every moment spent in their company was a revelation, and the lessons they imparted are beyond measure.

The second phase of my journey led me to the Street to School Project, where I had the privilege of collaborating with remarkable children who are a testament to resilience and determination. These weeks were an ode to growth, learning, and the human spirit's boundless potential. The bond we shared transcended words, and the memories etched in my mind are a constant reminder of the power of compassion and education.

As I reflect on these six weeks, I am filled with a sense of purpose and fulfillment that extends beyond words. My commitment to this noble cause is unwavering, and I eagerly anticipate returning to this endeavor with Sankap Volunteer Society at least once or twice each year. The impact of this experience has forever enriched my life, and the memories created will forever be treasured in the depths of my heart.

Amazing Volunteer and Travel Experience

I joined sankalp volunteer organization (Dec 2019) for 6 weeks in Jaipur and it was perfect for me because I've never had volunteer before. So basically, I joined their 4-week Work and Travel program + 2 extra week volunteer in Jaipur. We worked half period in renovating at School for Street Children painting and drawing in some walls with the help of other volunteers! Teaching and working with these children were a very gratification job and made me realize that everyone can contribute someway, whatever it is. On late afternoon and on the weekends, we usually explore this beautiful city and around. It wasn’t just a lot of tourist attractions but a cultural immersion for real! Very interesting! On the weekends, we went to Agra, Pushkar, Jaisalmer and Jodhpur of just to chill. We spent a night under the open sky in desert, was a great experience. I wanted more! And now, I feel like it would make much more sense to do something about the world while I travel around. Thanks to Sankalp and team. I recommended to everyone Work & Travel program with extra weeks if you can !

Pros
  • Connects you to others
  • Brings fun and fulfillment to your life
  • Good for your mind and sole
Cons
  • Lunch and dinner was not included during the weekend travel :)
  • I didn't get spice food because of other volunteers
  • Daily transport to project must be by AC car instead Tuk-Tuk!!

Real volunteering experience

I spent 4 weeks with Sankalp in the summer of 2018 and it was honestly one of THE BEST, THE MOST REWSRDING, THE MOST UNFORGETTABLY INCREDIBLE experience I have ever had ❤
I've done a lot of volunteering and travel in the past but would never have dreamed of how easy it could be to combined the 2!
I did the travel and volunteer package with Sankalp in Jaipur (the Pink city) and got to hike parts of the gorgeous Himalayas (involving a quite a few unforgettably funny stories), visit the hometown of the Dalai Lama and his temple, visit Delhi and Pushkar (city of colour), see one of the 7 wonders of the world - the Taj Mahal, and the best part was THE PEOPLE!
The people you end up volunteering with are so like minded, you come from all around the world for the same purpose, you get on so well and make friends for life! Oh my gosh and then there were the kids 😍 I dont even know where to begin, they were the most beautiful, kind hearted, innocent, loving, talented, smart children I've ever had the pleasure to work with! They've not had the easiest of upbringings in an orphanage but my God they are still so full of love and just like every normal child they LOVE TO PLAY!
YOU get one of the most incredible chances to impact their lives by playing with them, showing them love and affection and attention where they otherwise wouldnt know what that felt like! It's unbelievably rewarding and I'm definitely planning on returning again in the future!! 💕🎉
Any questions about this place feel free to message me!
India is nowhere near as dangerous as the media make it out to seem, the people are so friendly, the food is AMAZING, I was fortunate enough to not experience any "delly belly" 😂 despite having dodgy streetfood! And everyday you finish at midday so you have all afternoon to explore the lovely city of Jaipur, all the scenery, forts, palaces and bazaars it has to offer!
I COULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE HIGHLY ENOUGH, PLEASE GO AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THESE WONDERFUL CHILDREN'S LIVES AND YOUR OWN ❤❤❤❤❤

Jaipur Travel & Volunteer Program

I joined the Volunteer and Travel Program in Jaipur, India for four weeks and found it to be the experience of a lifetime!

The volunteer work, caring for orphans at a government-run children’s home in Jaipur was an incredibly humbling and life-changing experience that I will be eternally thankful for.

My volunteer hosts offered me as well as the rest of the volunteers unbelievable support during our stay. Every concern or query we raised was dealt with immediately and they went out of their way to make sure all our needs were met and we were comfortable and happy on all levels - offering physical and emotional support whenever needed.

Our “house mother” was fantastic! She made the most amazing meals, served us tea, took care of us when we were ill and was there for us all day every day and night with a smile on her face. No task ever a problem!

The travel program was fantastic! Very well organized, fantastic hotels, safe transport and wonderful sight seeing.

Overall this is one of the best volunteer programs available and offers amazing value for money when including the travel aspect into the volunteer program! Highly recommended!

What would you improve about this program?
More evening group activities for volunteers would be fun like going to cafes and restaurants in the evenings for dinner or going to the cinema. Have more fun in the house!

Street children project Jaipur Sankalp

Work with your child's dream and do voluntary work. It's the second time I'm working on the street children's project. It says a lot when you go for a second time. It's just amazing, something you'll never forget! Anyone who is interested in volunteering or responsible, wants to visit one of India's addresses: "Sankalp Jaipur". You can choose between several projects: street children, orphanage, women's empowerment. If you want a mix between work, travel, relax then you need to be here. You still have plenty of free time to explore India. They are happy to assist you in organizing. They also have an organized trip that I have done this time. It is definitely worth it. The second time in Sankalp was another great experience! It's a safe organization, it's fun to be with other volunteers, they're happy to help you, give you enough information. I'm very glad I've been able to do this.

Student Internship in North India

The course that I did in my internship was pretty enjoyable and would help me to carry ahead in my professional career. I got to know how to implement my gathered skills practically and see the real outcomes from them. It gave me the courage to be bold enough and confident so that I can converse with professionals with full confidence. It was a real boost and stimulated my intellect to the next level.

I can surely recommend their services to anyone. Amazing services guys! I went to the student internship in North India and trust me, and really learnt a lot about the country too. It’s an awesome country with diverse cultures yet unity in all.

What would you improve about this program?
I found them brilliant in giving support to the students coming from overseas.

Best thing I have ever done!

The overall layout and design of the Gap Year Expedition program is good to be a responsible tourist in India, I had a great time. I joined their 6 week Gap Year India Expedition and get opportunity to work with street kids for 4 weeks. This experience definantly ranks as one of my all time greatest. The kids have touched my heart in such an incredible way.
Pranay & Amita (Organizers) are compassionate, caring people who have inspired me to live my life in a way completely dedicated to the kids. I am so impressed by this project. I have learned so much that I know I will never forget. It was an honor to be a Sankalp Volunteer !!
The two weeks of travel has been one of the best ever as this has been an experience of a lifetime.
Thanks to Sankalp team, for all that you do for the kids here and for us !
