India – Bichli Haveli Project
Experience beautiful Rajasthan in the unique RWI way
For over two decades, Restoration Works International has been offering tour participants a remarkable cultural experience exploring the traditions and cultures of the world, with a special emphasis on hands-on service and meaningful relationship building in the communities in which we work.
Our capable tour leaders, small group sizes, and unattainable-experiences-on-your-own are RWI trip attributes that bring our volunteers back time and again. From your arrival to your departure, we take care of the details, so you can make the memories. Our 7- and 12-day trips allow you to travel slowly and really get to know the place and its people. And our emphasis on service means you’re no typical tourist – you’ll be giving back in a tangible way that directly benefits the Bichli Haveli community.
On our trips to the Bichli Haveli, we will work with our local partners to restore a 140-year-old haveli (nobleman’s house) into a community resources center as the focal point of a neighborhood renewal program.
The Bichli Haveli project is in one of the world’s most beautiful regions: the Indian state of Rajasthan, and the “White City” of Udaipur. Often called the “Venice of the East,” Udaipur is edged by lakes and hills and punctuated with ancient palaces. It has a rich cultural tradition of architecture, art, and craft that you can explore in depth in the ample free time you have when not volunteering at the project site and participating in the community program.
“Though we didn’t speak the same language as the local crew, we were able to build relationships and work together effectively. What a demonstration of the power of non-verbal communication! The Bichli Haveli Project volunteering experience was heartwarming and will stay with me forever.”
