The virtues of donations are great because it helps the needy and at the same time it gives an opportunity to the donor to give the surplus to the people in need. It helps the needy to sustain himself. -- Sam Veda

PLEASE NOTE: Visa requirements differ slightly from country to country. Please see your individual country’s rules for the Indian Tourist Visa. In most cases a volunteer can only come into India for 3 month period of time. If you want to volunteer abroad or go abroad for a full year we suggest that you apply for a one year tourist visa for India (multiple entry) as well as a visa from a neighboring country. Then you can volunteer with Crawl for a 3 month period and then either travel or volunteer away from India for 2 months and return again for a 3 month stay volunteering with Crawl. Neighboring countries such as Bangladish, Nepal, and Sri Lanka are also poor countries that could benefit from volunteers. They are also beautiful countries to visit.
