Most people are not aware yet about the plethora of opportunities India presents. The country has emerged as one of the cultural and economic hotspots of the 21st century, and has developed into a major competence centre in fields as varied as IT, media, engineering, and the entertainment industry. At the same time, the manifold environmental and social challenges create a pressing need for intervention.

With this guide Knowledge Must offers a complete resource for everybody who is interested in India's challenging volunteer environment.

"I have been wanting to volunteer in the health sector in India for several years now," says French university graduate Pierre Massaut. "To be honest, I was scared quite a bit - but with the assistance of Knowledge Must I finally made up my mind and came to India. Having a guidebook now on hand will make it so much easier for other people facing the same questions that I did. Once you make the extra effort to engage the Indian culture your personal experience will improve tremendously!"

In addition to answering the most pressing questions regarding volunteering in India, the guide features valuable insights ranging from logistics such as visa procedures and accommodation arrangements to cultural backgrounds and inspiration for how to spend one's leisure time.
