"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. It has been really exciting to embark on this Indian adventure and to live it with amazing people I met along the way. I came as one person and I am leaving completely as someone else. They have the biggest hearts, and the biggest ambition ever to help out. There should be more people just like them." – Pamela Milena at Palampur Valley. #VolSolIndia #Volunteer #VolunteerinIndia #VolunteeringSolutions #summer #2016 #travel #travelgram #locals #indian #people #life #volunteerabroad #volunteerwork #volunteering #gapyear #thingstodo #VolSolPalampur

India is one of the most favored destinations for travelers of all ages. With the Himalayas in the north and the Indian Ocean in the south, the Thar Desert in the west and the Sundarbans in the east – India can never fail to mesmerize the visitors.

Being a volunteer, you can explore India extensively and be a part of the development that the country essentially is trying to achieve. There are numerous programs in India that Volunteering Solutions can provide you with – the Street Children Program in Delhi, the Medical Internship Program in Palampur, the Summer Volunteer Adventure Program are the most popular ones.

India has a huge number of kids dwelling in the streets and the orphanages, and it would be great if you can give some time and spread some love among them.

While your weekdays would have proper project schedules, you can make full use of your weekends to travel and our country coordinator will help you in planning your trips.

You can join the Golden Triangle Program, which will give you the chance to travel across Delhi, Jaipur, and Agra – visiting the architectural grandeur that the Rajputs and Mughals had created since the 15th Century.

If you are planning to travel to India with your partner, what can be a better place than Taj Mahal – The Epitome of Love – to express your feelings?



Once known as ‘The Venice of East’ – Thailand is one of the most popular Southeast Asian nations which had a footfall of 6 million travelers in 2015. With the vibrant nightlife in Bangkok to serene beaches at Koh Samui – Thailand has a lot to offer to everyone visiting this archipelago.

With Volunteering Solutions, traveling to Thailand would be even more exciting as you’ll get to volunteer and teach the young monks in Chiang Mai, play with the kids at an orphanage in Bangkok or feed the elephants at the camp in Surin.

VolSol would provide you accommodation (home stays) in such a way that you can be in touch with the locals, and learn about their culture and language.

Another beautiful Southeast Asian nation, located on the east of Thailand is Cambodia – the ancient land where the Khmer Dynasty once ruled.

Cambodia is one of the safest Asian countries for solo travelers and backpackers. With Volunteering Solutions, you’ll get to see Cambodia differently. The country has much more than the Angkor Wat, and our in-country coordinator will assist you in planning your trip.

If you are a lover of history and ancient architecture, then Cambodia should be the place to visit in 2019. One can never get tired of seeing those ruins which would give goosebumps, and absolutely fill your heart with content.

Due to the unstable past and immense turmoils, Cambodia is still trying to cope up with its societal drawbacks, and therefore your contribution as a volunteer would be immensely appreciated. All our programs are in the capital city of Phnom Penh, and you can choose any program that suits your skills.



The little Himalayan landlocked country is nothing less than paradise. Housing the world’s highest peak, Mt.Everest – Nepal has always been on the checklist of mountain lovers.
