Capital of India, Delhi is the seat of administration and the monuments which tell the saga of a bygone era stand there. These icons are testimony to the grandeur of the past and also an attraction for the tourists. With an area of 1483 sq. Kms, Delhi is all set to acquire full statehood. The charm of Delhi has attracted Emperors and Conquerors. It is correctly said that Delhi is a land of 'Dilwalas' or for people with heart. This phrase acquires a true color when one goes around the lanes of Delhi.
Delhi's has an extreme climate. It is very hot in summer (April - August) and cold in winter (December - February). The average temperature can vary from 40 to 45 degree during the summer and 20 to 5 degree during the winters.
The best time to visit Delhi is from October to March but unfortunately, this national capital dip in pollution in this time every year and become one of the most polluted city in India.
Being a volunteer in Delhi can be an enriching experience. You can contribute to the society while also getting the chance to explore this historically important city but due bad pollution situation, currently we are not open to providing volunteer programs in New Delhi.
Here, we offer a lot to the traveller in terms of history, culture, food, hospitality and welcoming people and variety of projects such as Orphanage Volunteer Work and Program for Street Children, Women Empowerment, Teaching English and Internship Programs for students with non-profit organization. Thousands of abroad volunteer choose to take part in a volunteer programs in Jaipur every year.

Volutneer in Jaipur
I really enjoyed myself and volunteer program in Jaipur! Was very nervous about what the programme would involve before starting but had very good introduction from the sankalp coordinators which helped me and relax. The program for street children in Jaipur seemed to be well run and really making a difference and the lives of street children - hopefully they will enjoy the first brush with education and want to take it further as they get older. I would definitely recommend Sankalp Voluntary Organization to anyone. Really feel like it is run for the right reasons and not just to make a profit!
