Press Release Body: Leeds, UK, October 10, 2008 -- Despite India's great natural wealth and a recent economic upturn, more than 250 million people live below the poverty line and evidence of this can be seen on every street corner. This is why people are needed to volunteer vacation in India and help the people that the global economy all too often leaves behind.
Volunteer vacationers can prepare for a truly unique experience in the second largest nation on the planet. From Kashmir and the Himalayan plateau in the far North West, to the Kolkata and the Brahmaputra Delta in the West and on down to Kanyakumari and the holy confluence of the oceans at the Southern Cape; India is a country of startling contrasts and exquisite variations.
