I have found the overall experience to be generally hospitable. The house family was respectful enough, giving me my own room and calling me in when food was prepared. During my stay I helped in masonry work but was mostly teaching in the class room to 15 children age 2-10. The teacher who helped me was kind to me but occasionally used a more physical means of motivation towards the children that was, to my taste, indifferent, however most of the children were very respectful and polite. The nature in Kanda is beautiful and while I found the expense to be high, (keep in mind half of the expense goes to helping the school and construction) the 11 days I spent in Kanda were peaceful and a good escape from the rest of the world. I recommend the opportunity.

Worldwide students, volunteers ,social activists,tourists and other travelers visited Village- Sunargaon, Kanda, District- Bageshwar, state-Uttarakhand, India.

Voluntary Tourism in Kanda is a life-changing activity. When you arrive at this quaint region, you’ll be impressed by its richness in real-life treasures. Whilst its pure air and panoramic mountain scenery are visual delights, age-old Indian hospitality, vivid traditions and soldiering qualities are cultural delights. Kanda people are mainly occupied in agricultural farming, tea gardening, horticulture, forestry, handicrafts, jewelry. Their artistic skills in carpet weaving, painting, bamboo craft, carving on gold and silver are notable. But as you go on exploring the place you’ll find that more than 50% of people residing here live below poverty line and lack in basic necessities such as adequate sanitation and shelter.
Just like any other family vacations, a few days in this remote county, living with the locals as a family, knowing their culture and traditions will provide you with immense of pleasurable moments. But what’s makes voluntary tourism vacations in Kanda different and unique is that these pleasurable moments of your life will help in the growth and development of the poor villagers. Your pleasure will give them happiness of lifetime, isn’t it great?
