Shishya Community Volunteer Opportunities



The hostel at Shishya can accomodate 50 boys, parents & staff, located 25 kilometers outside the city of Dehra Dun in the state of Uttaranchal. With the Himalayas rising in the north as its backdrop, the lower Shivalik Mountains encircling it in the south, the Community is lovingly nestled in the "Doon Valley."


It's in one of the few places in India where winter temperatures force the people into coats and gloves while the summer days, though hot, find relief at night as temperatures drop to bearable warmth.
