Why Volunteer?

The present environmental crisis has thrown up a new set of challenges for India and its citizens. Like most developing countries, India needs to seize every opportunity to grow, but do so in a sustainable manner. We cannot follow the highly toxic development model of the West and need to look inward for solutions to our problems. Awareness of these issues is however sorely lacking in the country. By volunteering for the programme you can enrich yourself with a wealth of knowledge and a perspective that will enable you to contribute meaningfully to society and to your profession.
