Jump right into the sights, sounds, smells, and smiles of India on this volunteer and educational program. Volunteers will work with a privately funded school for deaf and blind children. The team will spend its first few days warming up to the beautiful city of Patiala, rich both in its color and royal heritage. Here volunteers will be introduced to their host families near the school with whom they will be staying. Participants can visit any area of the school they are interested in: English with the older kids, coloring with the younger kids, gym class, or spending time in the kitchen. For our second week, we will also have an opportunity to plan and organize specialized classes – English, math, computer science, etc. One of the highlights of our time in Patiala is a field trip with the school to visit the amazing Taj Mahal in Agra.
Heading north into the foothills of the Himalayas, participants will move to Dharamasala where the group has the opportunity to work with Tibetan refugees, volunteer in drop-in English conversation classes, check out rafting in the area, and simply wander the streets of this amazing city.

As we always work on community-requested projects, our work is subject to change depending on the community's needs at the time we are there.
OG combines meaningful volunteer experiences with cultural exchange and off-the-beaten path adventure, which means you'll also get to explore Indian cuisine, culture, history, and geography of the country.
