About Program

Our Women Empowerment Volunteer Program in India helps you to support women in their pursuit of healthy and sustainable livelihoods. Women’s groups provide a forum for issues such as family health, women’s rights, and access to resources, income generation, and other challenges women face in their daily lives. Volunteers have the opportunity to exchange ideas, collaborate in ongoing projects. You can also provide support in many other ways, depending on your skills and interests and the needs of the local community.

Recently we have brought changes to our Women Empowerment Project. We have mixed the women empowerment program with the work with children of rural areas in Jaipur, India. So the volunteers have the opportunity to work with both women and children in 1 project.

What an amazing experience!

This is unlike anything I have ever done before. India is so vibrant and colourful. The girls I met on the project were lovely and welcomed us into the group. Some of the things I really enjoyed were the henna, yoga, teaching a women's health class (I was so surprised at what they didn't know) and the meals at the guest house. The family at the guest house were so friendly and helpful as were the project organisers. They responded to WhatsApp messages quickly and answered any questions we had. Although the accommodation was basic, there were comfortable beds, clean sheets and air conditioning in the room. I would recommend this to anyone and encourage you to take every opportunity that is offered to allow yourself a truly immersive experience where you get to see the real India!

  • Living with an Indian family
  • Sharing information with the girls at the project
  • Exploring Jaipur safely

VWI: Women Empowerment

This was such a fulfilling program and I recommend it to anyone looking to help equip disadvantaged women / children with the skills and information they need to get by in the world.

The females in the program were very eager and excited to learn from the volunteers, which makes the experience all the more fun and uplifting! The staff / program coordinators also make you feel very welcome and comfortable.

Jaipur is a wonderful city and there was so much to see during my off time - it was a great experience!

  • Work with amazing young women
  • Beautiful city
  • Great staff
  • Accommodations could be better

Empower Women

About the women's empowerment program is really a challenge in a society where the role of women is not relevant that they believe they can be more and better.  My contribution was to try to give them a little bit of my knowledge in English and I loved the experience, these girls are receptive to volunteers and want to learn from them what they can give.
About the team that made this experience possible and did all the support, I recommend them they were just incredible
they advised, they recommended, they cared
So i just have tell  us thank so much.

Great experience

Volunteering with India is a really good organization. I applied for women empowerment project and I had my best time. The organization helps you a lot before and during your stay. Sukret is very patient and answers your questions quickly. The girls are very kind and sociable and welcomed me with enthusiasm. During the project, I talked with them taking part in sewing and beautician classes, as well as giving English lessons.
I lived for two weeks with an Indian family at the Prity guest house. They are really nice people, the food was great and the room very clean.
I am really happy to have done this experience with volunteering with india, and i will surely miss the girls so much!

Women Empowerment Program

all was well organised. I had just to come make english course and enjoy.
The guest house family take care of me when I was a little sick. Sukret take me to the doctor. The rickshaw was cool like a grandparents. The girls in the center were absolutely kind with me.
Thanks to Sukret I had the opportunity to go seeing the Taj Mahal!!!
A wonderful thing to do in life and if we have the possibility to do it we must do it.
This is so intense we can only learn more about life. The cultural difference is so powerful

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Keep your mind open. Enjoy the moment and realise that we are all humans

Very nice

Came here as a solo traveler for 10 days and loved my experience. The local people are nice and the staff is always there if you need any help. Would recommend 100%! Great teaching experience for children and for older woman and great food/beverages. Even if you don’t speak the language, the staff will make sure the communication between you and the students is okay. Three hours per day, you go to the center, which is located closely to the accommodation, and teach the course of your choice. Very nice experience :)

Amazing experience

A fantastic experience: I lived 3 weeks with an Indian family sharing food and habits of the day; in the afternoon I went to school where I had to teach English to the women of the project, but it was much more ... An exchange of teachings, emotions, smiles and laughter who have made me the student and their teachers, but of life !!!
I could do trip to Agra, Delhi, Faithpursikri, Abhaneri, Sikandra, Udaipur e Pushkar, with fantastic guides, for a really Indian experience.
I loved living with all the person I meet, but mostly with the women of the program, the teachers, the family, the coordinators and the person in charge of the association. I will definitely come back, next year, to the women, the teacher and the family that hosted me, because they all became my second family.
I miss already you 😍

What would you improve about this program?
The hours at school between lesson of English, massage, dance and a lot of laughters.

Loved It!!

The arrival pick up service was wonderful; one of the program coordinator was waiting right at the exit gate of Jaipur Airport with a huge “ Volunteering With India “ sign and a smile . Accomodation has been lovely. The host family is so sweet and welcoming. Truly felt a part of the family. They were always there to help with anything. Very Kind + warm family. The transportation service was very reliable and always on time. Shekhar and Totoram the taxi men have a smile always and so kind. I love all the staff members. They instantly made me feel comfortable and go above and beyond to help. I was a bit nervous to teach but Rohit ( program coordinator ) was great in translating English to Hindi; Sukret was always a message away if I had any questions ! I decided to volunteer with VWI because I have founded this program in good prices, locations and values. Wanted to go with a local operated organization also. I would rate this program 10 out of 10. Can’t recommend this program enough. This experience will impact my life in the best way for many years to come. I wanted to give back to the women + children but I feel I have received so much from this program. Everyday I was treated with respect, kindness, compassion and generosity. Everyone I had the pleasure of working will stay in my heart forever. I am going to miss seeing their smiley faces everyday, but I will return next year and every year 100%.. Jaipur was the best city to explore with so much culture and various activities. It’s been an experience of a lifetime. Thank you VWI !!

What would you improve about this program?
Don't have any. I enjoyed the program a lot and will be coming back next year.
