It is true as the saying goes, “Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer”. Indeed when one thinks of Volunteerism, they usually envision something which requires a lot of sweat and hard work. But at the same time one cannot deny the indescribable, irrevocable feeling of satisfaction and contentment that is bound to come along with it. We in Audacious Dreams strongly believe in the fact that No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another. Kindness is indeed a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. We at Audacious Dreams aspire to do just that. To bring the spirit of volunteerism alive in people and in doing so providing them a obvious opportunity to do their bit to the society. Here our main focus is to bring volunteers from abroad and have them dwell into the incredible nation that is India.

United Kingdom “What’s most special about the ADF study-abroad program is the unique opportunity it presents to learn the powerful lessons of living and making a lasting impact as global citizens today. I ended up learning far more from the locals than I ever imagined. The true gift is how this learning helped me cultivate a far deeper, first hand understanding of the world beyond the borders of my home, that on so many levels the world shares the same needs and gifts of understanding.”
– Katy Robinson, The Duke of Edinburgh’s award Association, UK Srilanka
“Living and volunteering in the village has been one of the most rewarding experiences that I have ever had. After just a few short weeks, the place had truly become my home, and the people my family.”
