The Barli Development Institute for Rural Women (BDIRW) is a registered civil society organisation (non-governmental, non-profit NGO) based in central India (Indore, M.P state), and has been working on universal peace-building through leveraging women's empowerment and environmental conservation activities since past 26 years. (visit: www.barli.org) Since it is a women's development institute we invite only female interns/volunteers - preferably those who are currently pursuing or have completed a Masters degree in any field.
This is a Call for International Volunteer applications for the Barli Volunteers Program. Barli Institute through its Volunteers Program provides an excellent opportunity to those who care for humanity and want to contribute in some way, but are new to the field of rural and tribal development. The volunteers or interns get an insight into projects and activities undertaken with rural communities, especially rural and tribal women towards improving their quality of life. At the same time, they are often able to contribute to supporting and improving these activities to various degrees.
Volunteers or Interns are individuals from across the world who seek to gain work and life experiences before resuming studies or those on a quest to learn something new and wish to contribute to the society.
Till date, Barli Development Institute has hosted more than 500 volunteers and interns from India and from more than 30 countries.

Volunteers can eat in the dining room with the trainees free. Seated on floormats you eat with your hands although cutlery is available.

And these you can easily buy them from the nearby shopping malls / grocery stores located at a distance of 10 minutes walk from the institute.
