Global Citizens: Think Global Act Local

VEDIKE runs the Global Citizens Programs to provide volunteer/service learning, study abroad, internship, CSR and both urban and rural field trip/excursion opportunities in India.  Our programs can be specifically designed to meet individual/group needs. Please write to us at volunteer@vedike.org.in


Development and Immersion Programs

VEDIKE can design short-term volunteer/service learning/study-abroad programs for youth/university and school students. Participants are involved in working on community development programs in rural Bangalore, such as teaching and assisting local teachers at Vedike Global School and working alongside local masons and labourers to build homes and toilets in the villages surrounding VEDIKE. They can also take part in activities such as classes on Indian culture and development and traveling to different parts of India.


Urban-Rural Bridge and CAS Programs

We run rural immersion programs for high schools in urban Bangalore to bridge the gap between urban and rural youth, focusing on the importance of sharing urban and rural knowledge.  

We also run CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) Programs for IB students, involving activities such as creative workshops, hikes, rural immersion experiences, construction projects and interacting with the children at Vedike Global School.


Corporate Social Responsibility Programs

VEDIKE facilitates CSR opportunities for corporate employees in rural Bangalore. CSR participants can be involved in activities related to education, sanitation, health and hygiene, housing, adult literacy and capacity building and sports and development.
