If you are interested in volunteering in South India and helping out with the environment, we’d love to see you. The clip above was made during the stay of a few volunteers from France & Australia last year. It gives an idea of what they were up to. The song is a cover I LOVE BIRDS by THE EELS. We have no copyright… just a love for the music. Thank you Clement Gaumon for the video, David & Sarah for the music.

We are located at Sri Narayani Peedam in the village of Thirumalaikodi – near the city of Vellore in Tamil Nadu. We are 150km west of Chennai and equidistant from two other very well known pilgrimage towns of Thirupathi and Thiruvanamalai.

As a volunteer you can get involved in either

  • planting trees,
  • helping with the Green Sakthi Club- the awareness programme for local schools,
  • working in the tree-nursery or
  • giving a hand at the zero-waste management plant.

Comfortable accommodation in our guest houses is available on our campus. As we are in temple grounds, all volunteers are expected to wear traditional Indian clothing and eat vegetarian meals.

Do something good for Mother Earth, set off your carbon footprint, experience life in rural India and expand your expertise.
