Impactful Volunteering

Traveller to Changemaker

Experience life in Spiti as an insider while giving back meaningfully to the community

A journey where you become one with the place you visit. Live their lives, hear their stories, and in the process, understand their world – and perhaps yourself – a little better. At Ecosphere, we believe this is the path towards volunteering that truly makes a difference.

At Ecosphere we aim to transform volunteers from observers to insiders in Spitian life. Our programs create unforgettable and rewarding memories for you, while contributing to the sustainable development of Spiti.

The chance of a lifetime!
