Landing in a new country is exhilarating but it can also be a little unnerving; with this in mind, volunteers are collected from Delhi International airport at their time of arrival. Delhi Airport pick up is included in all programs and after meeting your iSpiice guide in the arrivals hall volunteers are transferred to the hotel in Delhi to meet with other volunteers. Volunteers can join for 2 up to 12 week duration’s year round. iSpiice Volunteer Programs make every effort to keep costs low and at the same time offer you professional, safe and comprehensive services for your volunteer abroad experience. A market place comparison of our prices and services offered will surprise. “We endeavor to take the ‘worry’ out of your volunteer placement by including all of the main arrangements within the cost of the Program Fee.
