For the last 10 years, FSL-India has been involved in the preservation and conservation of World Heritage Sites, i.e. Hampi, Western Ghats, Mahabalipuram and the Great Himalayan National Park. Established in 1984 and ranging more than 1000sq km, the park is the natural habitat of numerous flora and fauna, several of which are threatened by extinction. In June 2014, it was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites due to its outstanding significance in biodiversity conservation. Our volunteers will participate in activities that contribute towards the biodiversity conservation of this beautiful park. Awareness creation on waste management for international/national tourists and locals, cleanup of scenic spots and waterfalls along with the involvement of school children, a local NGO, the community, park officials, the Archaeological Society of India and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre are all part of this adventure for nature lovers.
FSL-India (Field Services and Inter-cultural Learning - India) was legally incorporated in 2001, with the support of like-minded national and international organizations with a primary purpose of bringing about global transformation, progress and growth through youth exchange programs. FSL-India has grown to become one of the largest volunteer hosting organizations in India, organising various volunteer and development projects throughout the country. Most of the projects are carried out independently, and some are undertaken in cooperation with local NGOs as they are aware of the development work that needs to be undertaken in an area and have hands on experience. We support them in their efforts to address the issues and the precise needs of the local community and help bring about the desired change in the long term. FSL-India is a leading youth development organisation of India focused towards intercultural Learning through Voluntary Services, set up to promote Global Understanding by providing opportunities to youth to work in different cultural contexts and to appreciate intercultural learning.
