Visit our programs in India

Traveling to India is an unforgettable experience. Traveling to India with SOPAR-Bala Vikasa and visiting concrete development projects and programs is life changing!

These organized trips, which we usually offer once a year, will take you through some of India’s most remote rural villages and give you first hand experience on how an organization like SOPAR-Bala Vikasa, along with the help of individuals like you, makes a concrete difference in alleviating poverty in the lives of these poor rural communities. Experience all the beauty India has to offer while learning about our sustainable international development efforts.

“Throughout the trip, words could not express what I felt. As a group, we were immersed with the people, in small villages. We connected and celebrated with them. It would not be possible to live and see what we saw while traveling on our own. SOPAR-Bala Vikasa made me see the reality of rural life in India while giving me a lot of hope for the future. It’s so nice to see how people help each other, even when they are in financial distress. Beautiful life lessons for us who live in abundance without even appreciating it… It’s an eye-opening and life-changing journey. I am now -by default- a SOPAR-Bala Vikasa ambassador!”

“My experience in India with SOPAR-Bala Vikasa was one of the most inspiring that I have had. I went through so many emotions. I was touched by the difficult living conditions of the people we met in the villages. But I was equally touched by the impact and hope that the organization brings to these people. It is amazing to see that it takes so little money to make such a big difference in the lives of entire villages. SOPAR-Bala Vikasa does an incredible job. I say well done to the whole team and thanks a million for this immense dose of inspiration.”
