The social impact we make in our volunteers lives is equally as great. Sankalp Organization offers the opportunity for people all across the world to come together with one main goal: make a difference in this world. What a beautiful mind-set! You will get to experience a variety of cultures, coming together with one another from different countries, which can offer new perspectives on life. We find that incredible friendships and bonds can come out of these unique times spent volunteering in India together. You will take these learned experiences, new cultural understandings, and deep friendships home with you. Through volunteer programs, we are able to serve some of the great needs in our community.
Orphanage children still take up a major underserved and overlooked population in our country. The need for care, stimulation, and basic services is greatly lacking. Volunteers can benefit local orphanage children by providing them with daily care, socialization, the art of play/communicating, and lots of love that they would not receive otherwise. Your impact on their young, developing lives is something that is impossible to measure. Love and attention can make all the difference!
Street children often do not get to experience or partake in the education system of government schools, due to circumstances out of their control. When our school is brought to them locally with a free education, uniforms, and basic supplies we are able to reach and teach a population that would not have this opportunity. Volunteers from across the globe are welcomed to teach and educate young children with bright minds that are eager to learn and socialize just like any other child. We all have something incredible to offer!
Women and young girls need to be empowered to know their great worth in a society that often sees this as untrue. They can highly benefit from confidence building, learning skills, education, and any other lessons/stories our volunteers can share with them. It takes a village!
Primary school teaching assistants program provide help to a teacher with class-related duties. Our team are sometimes referred to as paraprofessionals or teacher’s aides. Most of the government schools are lacking the quality of education and we fill the gaps by teaching and assisting.

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Volunteer and Travel
I spent 4 weeks in Jaipur doing the Work & Travel program. I worked in the orphanage which was hard work but very rewarding! You grow to love the kids (the kids grow to love you) and I feel a month just wasn't enough! If I had more time, I would definitely have stayed for longer. The first week was the hardest - settling in and getting used to the culture shock. However, the orientation delivered by Amita provided valuable information and advice which made me more comfortable and allowed me to gain a clearer perspective of Jaipur. Amita and Pranay were both very efficient, organized, kind and supportive throughout the whole trip. I always felt very safe and taken care of - especially food wise - thanks to Puni the cook who provided delicious, sizeable meals twice daily. I believe this program was of exceptional value. Over all, the volunteer house was far beyond my expectations and my experiences, priceless.
