Volunteer work abroad in India

Four great religions came into being in India: Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. Twenty-three official languages are recognised. The Indian coastline stretches out over seven thousand kilometres and the country counts a billion and a half inhabitants. It is ranked second in the world listing of the most populated nations. India is a country of unclassifiable excesses - too large, too impressive, too poor, too rich, too unrecognised, too beautiful.

Home to the most ancient civilisations dating back to 9000 B.C., jewel of the British Empire for two centuries, independent republic since 1947, India is today an economic crossroads and a nation which is sure of its values. It displays its spiritual roots proudly whilst assuming its role of a great power of the 21st century, even launching, in 1997, an inhabited space capsule for a journey of twelve days in space. The Indian administration was already decentralised in the sixteenth century and the emperors of the time proved to be great patrons of the arts and enlightened property developers. The famous Taj Mahal and hundreds of other monuments bear witness to the architectural creativity which reigned back then. Nehru and Gandhi have marked the history of humanity. India has spread its philosophy and has improved minds. Visitors to contemporary India contemplate the indelible traces of the incredible destiny of this country the size of a continent. They are dazzled by the beauty of the timeless landscapes and fascinated by the wisdom of the inhabitants.
