I experienced some difficulties in the first two weeks, where the manager at the orphanage just took me and some other volunteers around different places, and we didn't actually get to spend any time at the orphanage - witch is the reason that we came here - to spend time with the children. After two weeks i got to change to a different orphanage with another manager, and things there were much better. I had a small problem - witch was solved through idex. Overall i look back at my stay with a big smile. Iv'e met the most amazing...Read more...

The project it self lacks a lot of support from Idex and also from the teachers who already work there. The only person who actually helped me a lot was Anita, my translator, who also helped me take care of the children. I also feel that the children are most used to memorizing things than actually learning and understanding them and that's not goodt. On another hand the children are really amazing and it was an incredible opportunity for me to be able to teach them and see the little improvements they showed day by day.Read more...

Volunteering is one of the most interesting experiences. Allows you to leave your comfort zone and learn about other realities. Has changed my way to perceiving things, I'm very happy.Read more...

The experience with the children was amazing. They are cute and very smart. Each one has a different difficulty but all have presented evolution. I am very pleased with the volunteer workRead more...

Help In Suffering is a very good project to work at if you love animals and want to help them. I wasn't sure if I wanted to study veterinarian nurse or not, which is why I choose this hands on project to maybe find my answer to this. I was surprised with the organisation and I am definitely coming back to HIS again some day. There will always be some language barrier but as soon as you've been working there for some time, it will improve a lot. I can definitely recommend HIS if you love animals and want to...Read more...

I would recommend this program to everyone. The experience is amazing. Starting with the volunteer work, but also, the cultural immersion. Daily Indian routine, workshops, adding the fact that you have the chance to explore touristic places. Is the best option for who wants to help to change the world and also get to know a new culture.Read more...

The experience was incredible and I am really grateful to be able to say that I got to have a nice time in India. I felt really immersed in the culture and all the staff made me feel very welcomed here. I am also satisfied with my program of choice Women Empowerment. My critique is that I think IDEX lacks organization on the programs, the volunteers are often unprepared due to insufficient information. Besides, I would have liked to know beforehand that the date I chose would fall on a holiday, due to that I was only able to work...Read more...

The experiences included in the program were amazing- something money can't buy and you get to really live and experience real India. The project for me wasn't what I expected. I chose the teaching project and I thought I would be helping a teacher like a teaching assistant but I was the teacher which I found really difficult as I wasn't sure how to teach them. I felt that I wasn't really prepared so a a little more preparation would help future volunteers. Overall the experience was fantastic and I would recommend it to other people.Read more...
