Mandore Guest House in India: Homestay and Volunteer Work
We believe that tourism should be about interacting with other cultures, not exploiting them. This could mean more working and travelling with local people on public buses rather than looking at them through the window of a private tour bus. We bring people together from different regions, states, countries, cultural heritage, social and political backgrounds. We do have a priority and positive role in preserving and protecting our cultural and natural resources which also meets the need for ecologically sensitive travel.

WWOOF International (Willing Workers on Organic Farms)
Many countries in Asia participate in this unique worldwide exchange organization. In return for volunteer help, WWOOF hosts offer food, accommodation and opportunities to learn about organic lifestyles. WWOOF organizations link people who want to volunteer on organic farms with people who are seeking volunteer help. Each country works slightly differently, but generally a very small membership fee is charged in exchange for a listing of available opportunities.
