Ethical Volunteering with HMWS
"No Program Fees... just a magical experience!"
Here at HMWS we don’t require you to have any formal qualifications as we believe everybody can bring something positive to our organisation. Desirable qualities are spoken English, teaching experience, but more importantly a kind heart and the willingness to make a positive difference in our deprived area.
Unlike many volunteering organisations around the world WE DO NOT TAKE ANY CHARGES, FEES OR COMMISSION to be a part of our team. We believe the life experiences, education and most of all love that our volunteers bring is the most valuable asset to the children and communities of Gorubathan (Darjeeling) India. Our programs are desirable and needy and will try and accommodate our volunteers as best as possible to make your stay with us efficient and rewarding.
SHOULD YOU NEED A PLACE TO STAY:
We can accommodate up to 4 - 6 people or Group at any time, although arrangement for further persons (Group Volunteers) could be arranged upon request. All our previous volunteers have opted to utilise the homestay we can offer, please contact us for your booking of accommodation and food. Using Homestays ensures you have great value for money and puts all proceeds back into the local community. If you choose to stay within a homestay you will have all local facilities and internet access also and we can also arrange local pick-up and drop-off if you let us know your arrangements. Any further questions please get in touch to discuss this option.
The costs are US $ 98 a week per person - This money gives you three home cooked meals as well as Tea every day and accommodation.
Airport pick up and drop off is $ 100 only.
