Host Family

Your host family will be like a home away from home. Having a warm, caring family to come home to each day is an ideal way to adjust to living in a different country. A supportive home environment gives you the confidence to focus on contributing at your placement and exploring the country.

In Delhi and Jaipur, we have beenworking with our amazing host families since 2006. Our host families are well educated, socially respected, responsible, mature, and experienced with international volunteers. They are carefully chosen for security, comfort, cultural exchange, and friendliness. Many of our hosts are associated with our programs. And they have hosted hundreds of international volunteers, so they understand the need, comfort, and wellbeing of our volunteers.

Staying with a host family during your India volunteering work is a great way to experience typical Indian culture, learn local language, and understand local way of life and many more.

When you live with host family you will get either single or shared room depending up on the availability. Rooms/beds are clean, comfortable, safe, and secured. Our local team has checked and approved the accommodation.

Facilities in Jaipur and Delhi’s host families: Single or Shared rooms (same gender), shared bathroom, comfortable beds, electricity, western toilet, regular supply of water (No hot water), safe and sound living environment, quality home-cooked meals.


Orphanage Hostel Accommodation

In India, orphans and staff who manage the orphanage live inside the orphanage. And a few orphanages in Delhi and Jaipur have also set aside special rooms to host international volunteers. These rooms, which are especially developed to host volunteers, are well furnished, comfortable, safe and secure.

When you live in a project hostel as avolunteer in our orphanage program, you will get either a single or shared room depending on the availability.
