AVI offers the volunteers opportunities to experience India's rich culture

A member of the family on the camp
AVI offers the volunteers unique opportunities to experience India’s rich culture by working and living with the community in a little village six kilometres from the town of Sikar – section Accomodation and Food.

Here the volunteers are integrated in a genuine Indian family in their farm in the rural area. You are one of them, in the middle of their daily life – not a tourist observing from a distance.  The volunteers are working and living with the local community not as a traveler but as their fellow resident.

Markets, local fairs, festivals and celebrations
To experience the Indian traditions, customs and the Indian life style the volunteers get plenty of opportunities to visit the fascinating textile- and jewelry markets for shopping, local fairs and festivals. The volunteers may probably get the opportunity to participate in social celebrations like – a wedding, birthday party etc if such events occur during the volunteer weeks. The villagers are very proud and happy to have international guests during their celebrations!

Cultural workshops
AVI volunteers are offered a variety of professionally organized cultural workshops that include theory and practical activities relating to Yoga, meditation, language lessons, Indian cooking, Indian dressing and henna painting.

Orientation sessions
Good and careful information about the different projects, safety, accommodation, transports and other relevant issues is naturally delivered during the first days in the camp – section Support and Information.
Informative and interactive sessions are organized and scheduled for AVI’s participants to learn about India - in general, its economy, life of the people, geography, history, culture, caste system and the languages, including some Hindi lessons.

The volunteers may decide on the contents – section Support and Information.
