Homestays & Work Exchange Programs in India

Homestay Cultural exchange

Home Stay/Cultural Exchange programs are arranged in most parts of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, and Himachal Pradesh. The duration of Home stay / cultural exchange would be for two weeks or one month. During this period you as a volunteer get to stay with a rural Indian family and experience life through their eyes. You get to understand the local traditions, lifestyle and language. You also celebrate the seasonal festivals along with the family and relish authentic local cuisine.

In a typical placement volunteers stay in a family where they get Indian/local cuisine twice a day (around 9 O’ clock in the morning and 7 O’ clock in the evening). Tea is served in the morning and in the afternoon. Volunteers will have the opportunity to get together with other volunteers and share their experience. You will be able to travel to nearby towns for shopping and could travel to other areas on longer vacation. Besides project work, volunteers can utilize their spare time in organizing the youth and women’s groups of the community to do some worthwhile activities like building a smokeless stove, building a toilet by using local materials, making a soak pit, kitchen gardening, making a solar dryer, garbage management or paper recycling.

Also make friendships which may last a lifetime.
