The organization is located at Rajasthan in India. Volunteering India educates and motivates rural population about various aspects relating to environment, social welfare, health, moral values, reformation of misled youth etc. This helps them analyze the root causes of their poverty and encourages them to work towards a sustained improvement in the quality of their lives. Further, Volunteering India promotes cultural exchange activities for enthusiastic tourists who want to have an in-depth experience of Indian culture and tradition.
