Our partners behind this vacation promote inclusivity on all their trips and across their business and we are all committed to ensuring travelers face no discrimination on any part of the trip they control.
There are challenges associated with volunteer travel, and these can make accessible travel difficult. However, we are very keen to chat with travelers with specific needs to see if we can make a trip possible.
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe put a lot of effort into being sustainable and working to be environmentally friendly within the city. Ensuring everyone is aware of this and committed to the stewardship of the surrounding area. Before interns set off we inform them of the differences in air quality, cultural information and tips to living in the country to help maintain a respect between the locals and the applicants.
We promote either walking a short 25 minute walk to the hospital from the accommodation to reduce your carbon footprint and reduce unnecessary transport use. Or, ensure groups travel together to ensure safety and help reduce the number of travel trips.
We actively encourage our interns to reuse their water-bottles and fill them up with the filtered water dispensers in their accommodation to reduce rubbish waste and have less risk of water contamination.
We have an optional week long cultural and language course before the internship begins which teaches the interns about cooking methods and good quality sourced food which is provided to them. The accommodation is well kitted out to cook properly and cut down on eating out and travel costs.
Protecting the world:
We insist that all participants bring their own water bottles when they travel with us, and clean free water is always available. We have even created a water bottle that can be purchased before departure and encourage people to use it at all stages of their journey including at the airport, on flights and whilst on their project. We are striving for all of our projects to be free of single use plastic.
We emphasise the importance of showing respect for local people and their customs in our briefing material. Participants will work alongside permanent staff, forming close bonds and getting an insight into real life in India. Our policy is to send people out in small groups or individually. This minimises the environmental and social impact that the participants have on the destination and helps them to integrate into the local community.
PeopleIn Delhi, the local doctors and nurses who work within the hospital are helped by the interns, who provide work and support to the local community. The week long cultural and language course prior to the medical internship provides the correct understanding of cultural differences and norms to get used to within the community and how to interact with locals and learn about their customs.
Information about safety and security is provided. This includes understanding road rules, appropriate dress sense and ways to address local people. Providing this knowledge helps keep a fluid and friendly dynamic with the local community and gives a local insight into life in the city and a great way to get involved with the community structure.
The medical internship, by its nature helps, interns to directly aid and impact the local community by examining and helping patients, providing a service as a representative of the hospital. By working and shadowing in the different departments, all different people in the local community will be met and treated equally. This enables an intern to get a broad scope of medical practices and understand various groups in the community and show equality and professionalism in the work-space.
The Indian staff who look after the interns on our behalf in India, only employ local Indians to assist with cooking for the interns during the weekdays and cleaning of the housing areas. This provides jobs and money solely for the local community.
