Volunteer and Travel in Himachal Pradesh

Volunteering with a local NGO is a very unique experience for travellers. Nothing can be more rewarding than making a difference in the lives of the locals. Today, there are a number of NGOs operating in various districts of Himachal Pradesh that work in fields of cleanup to education.

One of the NGOs in Himachal Pradesh is Waste Warriors. They are based in Dharamshala and Dehradun and are run by a group of enthusiastic millenials. They invite travellers to come volunteer with them in order to make a difference in the local ecology.

 

Tourism boom has created a number of problems for this fragile hilly settlement. One of the issues is the collection of single use plastic so that they are eliminated from the ecosystem once and forever.

As a traveller, you can also volunteer with them and help them find extra manpower for their causes. You can join them on their cleanup drives, attend and share ideas during interactive sessions and if you are an artists then you can also create art installtions around the town.

Volunteering is an important aspects of responsible travel in India. Through your contribution you can make a big difference.

  1. Great to see there are still people in this world who care about our planet. To be honest, I don’t think the NGO’S around the world are doing enough. The government from each country should put more resources into it. Thx for thi article.

  2. What a fantastic thing to be able to do and combine travel and doing something positive for the environment. Great stuff!

  3. This sounds like an amazing cause, those who volunteer for work like this and other impactful work are truly amazing. It is always a shame to see how much people litter, my husband and I are looking to get one of those trash sticks and a bag so next time we are hiking we can clean up a bit for a “take more out than you took in” mentality. Thanks for sharing this.

  4. It feels good to help others and volunteer in India. Maybe one day I will do it and be part of the community.

  5. Volunteering for a better cause is something close to my heart as I think it makes a big difference. Could this program accept people around the world? What would the visa situation look like?
