Handi-Care Intl. recommends that students book their flights through a travel agent or online with reputed Airlines. We highly recommend that you take travel “medical insurance ” and “Cancellation / Interruption” insurance or make payment from a credit card that offers travel protection.
Pick up will be arranged from those airports once we get your itinerary via taxi. All 3 cities are approximately 2.5-3 drive to ASSA. Cost for taxi is about $60.00 Cdn. (total). You can pay for this via the main office at Amar Seva Sangam.
All Volunteers will be given accommodations at Amar Seva Sangam’s Volunteers Quarters or in a suitable room located on the main campus near the school and rehabilitation facilities. Accommodations are modest but are clean and include hot running water, showers, and private bathroom. Up to 3 volunteers of the same gender will be placed in each room, depending on the number of volunteers serving at any one time.
Handi-Care Intl. charges a fee of $160 per week, for which tax receipt will be issued. $160 is charged for each additional week. This covers room & board and all meals which are provided in the dining hall within in the ASSA campus, as well as the cost of any project-related travel.
Flight costs to India and any outside trips within India are the responsibility of the volunteer. Sight-seeing and shopping are up to the individual. There are many local sightseeing opportunities around ASSA and transport can be arranged through ASSA’s reception via taxi or auto rickshaw.
Handi-Care Intl.’s charges are very modest compared to other organizations because no profit or overhead expenses are taken from volunteer fees and all money received goes directly towards the cost of accommodation, meals and supporting ASSA’s programs.
Fundraising can be organized by students and can be focused around their local universities and communities. Parents / relatives and friends are the best source to begin with. Their contributions can be tax deductible.
