A wonderful experience

We had an absolutely remarkable time with Rainbow Voluntours. We were looking for a family volunteering opportunity and came across them in a web search. The director, Ridhi, was invariably thoughtful and responsive in our correspondence, listening to what we were looking for and matching us with a perfect situation. Our family of 6 (four kids, ages 5-13) would be teaching in a school and an after-school program, and I was worried that it would either be too much (i.e., "Here's your class for the week, best of luck!") or too little (i.e., "Sit over in the corner and watch.").
It was the perfect balance: making a contribution but not being asked to do too much, with Rainbow Voluntours staff with us every step of the way to help, support, clarify, etc. I was also impressed that they didn't feed us a line about how we were changing the world in a week; I knew going in that *we* would be the ones most changed, and the staff's perspective's was the same: we were making an impact by showing we cared and sharing experiences, which hopefully meant something to a lot of people.
The whole staff in Kerala -- Ridhi, Geeta, Midhu -- were wonderful, and it was a transformative experience for our family.

It was the best 3 days in my life and the incredible experience for the kids from 6 to 12 years.
exploring the nature, orientation, river sports and cooking on self made fire. Sleeping under the stars with tents. Geting a food from local people and wild food.
Amazing experience with Rainbow Voluntours
Submitted by Soso | June 05, 2014
I certainly experienced the best of my time in India by volunteering with Rainbow Voluntours in a local primary school during 3weeks.
It was great to experience the difference approach in term of teaching, socialising, interacting between people. The kids were very very sweet and my teacher colleagues very kind and curious. I helped them on a daily basis with their English proficiency and we had some interactive classes with a lot of fun and games. As it was Diwali time we did some paintings activities with a lot of colours on.
I really had an amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to make a difference in the local community.
Life changing volunteer opportunity in Kerala, India
Submitted by Travel Enthusiast - London | May 23, 2014
I had a wonderful experience volunteering in India with Rainbow Voluntours. I led a busy life in London and needed a break to reflect and get some perspective on things. I'm glad to say that it really worked! My volunteer arrangements with the school I was assisting were first class. The teachers I worked with were hilarious and the children were all really sweet. I would teach kindergarten in the morning and then maths, English and science to the kids in middle school later in the day. My host family were so welcoming and kind, I still get Facebook messages from them from time to time.
