SAGE journey to India – making a difference

Voluntourism at its most rewarding.

washingwomen-300x211It’s not often you get an opportunity to step up and make a real difference while experiencing travel and adventure in a land of paradox. This is exactly what we are inviting you to do when you join us on this incredible journey to India.

This 12 day journey to Mumbai and the villages beyond will embed you deeply into Indian culture and give you an experience of India from the grassroots up. It is ‘voluntourism’ at its very best and this ‘tour’ is a chance for you to give of your time to help save lives and to give people hope – a combination of social responsibility and the real India.

We will be working with the Shiksham Gram Shelter for Homeless Children. and will be teamed up with the Sage Foundation. You will have the chance to contribute in varied ways – you may be teaching the children English, helping plant trees and establish the organic garden or assisting with construction of a prefabricated eco house for a training centre.And it will certainly not all be work! We have a wonderful itinerary planned taking in places which are steeped in the historical and spiritual depth of India. This will include the opportunity to visit the huge and fascinating Dharavi slum in Mumbai as well as sip cocktails in the Harbour Bar of the opulent Taj Mahal Palace Hotel.

We will have the time to wander through ancient Buddhist temple caves over 2,200 years old, and take a visit to the meditation retreat to light an incense stick for the Gods. And our favorite massage lady will pamper you with a rejuvenating Ayurvedic massage! Oh and don’t let’s forget the wonderful food we enjoy! India is a culinary experience that will awaken your taste buds and delight you with flavours.

Simply by coming on the trip, you will have made a very personal contribution both from your volunteer work and a part of your travel costs will be donated to help the children lead a better life.

Here is what Paul Eglinton said after his journey in February 2011:

“The Sage Journey brought a new dimension to my life. It was magic, I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. The volunteer role is immensely rewarding. We worked with locals and got insights into the culture that you wouldn’t normally notice as a tourist. We visited unique places, had wonderful food – and if you are looking for travel with a purpose this is how you do it. Shazar – Wow! You have definitely sparked something.” Paul Eglinton NZ.
