The Work of India Volunteer Care

Who are we?

Located in Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu, India Volunteer Care was created to make an avenue through which international volunteers can come and offer their services. We comprise of a small group of like-minded local people who aim to identify and place international volunteers where they are most needed: in emerging, small-scale and grassroots organisations that lack the necessary means to attract and accommodate international volunteers, but would benefit greatly from outside assisstance and knowledge. 

India Volunteer Care was born out of a genuine concern for the suffering that is apparent in the area where we live and work. We observed the growing popularity of travelling abroad to do volunteer work in India, and we wanted to use this trend to benefit the underprivileged population the NGOs in our region serve.

Why have we created a blog?

  • To allow the public to follow our amazing story as the organisation, as well as our partner organisations, continue to progress and evolve
  • To give the reader an insight of the work involved with NGOs in India
  • To introduce the reader to the amazing people supported by our organisation, their personalities and the joy that they bring into our lives.

Prime Trust, our sister organisation

Prime Trust focuses on programs that empower local women, enable rural and urban poor to become self-reliant, raise social awareness, and educate underprivileged children. The organisation's reach has grown every year since its inception in 2002 thanks to its support from India Volunteer Care and other NGOs, also by putting the power of change in the hands of the people who need it the most.
