What does Sewa Yatra cost me?
There is no cost for visiting Sewa Yatra projects.
I have a busy schedule in India. Can I volunteer?
Yes! Take out a few hours from your schedule to meet and serve the needy. Go with the attitude that you will learn more from the Yatra volunteering than what you will impart. We also have longer volunteering opportunities. Ask us.
What will I get out of a Sewa Yatra experience?
Your visit will help you understand the gap existing between the life of the beneficiaries, and a normal, healthy life. Many of our Yatris have had a transformational experience visiting and volunteering. Go with the attitude that you will learn more from the Yatra than what you will impart, and you may have a metamorphic experience too!
Can I take my children along?
Yes, we encourage you to take your children along! Experience the project with them and give them a life changing experience. Set an example! Volunteer with them for a few hours or days. Inspire them to learn the ‘Joy of Giving.’
Do I have to donate to the Project I visit?
No, there is no obligation. It is entirely up to you.
