Whatever age or background, we believe that everyone has something significant to offer the community.
We bring people together through our voluntary organisation MARWAR MEDICAL & RELIEF SOCIETY, founded and incorporated as an Non Government Organisation (NGO) in 1987/88, to share skills, creativity and learning with the aim of building a fairer world through the active involvement and collaboration between volunteers and the host community.
We believe that each of us is capable of making significant contributions to the lives of others, and collectively, our contributions make our world a better place to live.
To promote peace, justice and a greater understanding between people and nations through voluntary work.
Voluntary Service Project
India's cultural diversity is amazing to take in; her colours, sounds and smells bristle with intensity. It is crowded with people, scattered with temples and choked cities and is divided by sacred rivers like the Ganges. India is economically very poor, consequently, volunteer work is quickly absorbed and we need many more overseas volunteers. We would like to invite you to come and explore a small part of this great land on a volunteer project in Rural Rajasthan where all social and cultural life revolves around either a village well or a temple.
You will certainly find living and working in India a challenge and it will take time to come to terms with a very different culture and environment. We believe whole heartedly that we offer great learning opportunities for people of all nations. Our purpose is not to change the culture of our host country, but to embrace and better understand the differences that give equal value to each society. We believe the footprint we leave behind should be gentle, the friendships great, and the memories and understandings gained should help to change lives forever.
These short & long term volunteer projects are aimed at improving the lives of the disadvantaged people of Rajasthan as well as focusing on improving the basic infrastructure in schools with the belief that education is a critical requisite for socio-economic change. We all need energy and patience and you will receive the warmest welcome into the local community and leave with a lifetime's experience.
Rajasthan Rural Project - "Learn as you work as you travel"
Many Indians would never travel and your interaction with them would help us in encouraging them becoming apart of a global culture. We could through these interactions promote world peace and understanding and lessen the stereotypes and mutual distrust that is common place between the developing world and developed countries. We would through volunteer - doing meaningful work alongside local people help and bridge that gap. It could be you're the brilliant contribution to building a more peaceful world.
We bring people together from different regions, States, Countries, Cultural Heritage, Social and Political backgrounds to do voluntary work on practical projects of direct benefit to local communities. The goal is not for volunteers to change the host communities, but rather to help them in the needs that the host community has identified as important.
The volunteers are actively involved with and support projects that are secular and have an education-related component to them apart from health care, environment, socio-economic aspects and women's issues i.e. Women in Difficult Circumstances. It also includes activities directed toward meeting the needs of the poor and needy - distribution of food, clothing or medicine; provision of housing for handicapped animals etc. Our organization may also undertake relief activities during a natural or man-made disaster & some amazing program for kids during serving with locals.
Such projects provide an inter-cultural learning experience and the real opportunity to explore a new country and a new culture in a deeper and more respectful way than as tourists. The natural, healthy exchange of ideas and opinions does lead to a mutual understanding of colorful cultures in so short time. The experience will likely change how you see the world. You will interact with local community members, not only getting a chance to see their traditional culture but to understand it on a much deeper level.
