Being a HVT Host

Himalayan Volunteer Tourism (HVT) works across the Indian Himalayan Region and engages with a range of Host Organisations to facilitate volunteer placements.  Any NGO, Not for Profit Organisation, Community or Voluntary Organisation, or Social Service Enterprise is welcome to partner with us to enlarge their footprint and create a larger impact on ground.

We also welcome Homestays in the Himalayan Region who need volunteers to establish, manage and expand their operations, to register themselves as Hosts.

HVT’s Commitment to Host Organisations

Help them prepare for volunteer involvement including policies and procedures
Identify volunteer roles
Promote opportunities through local and regional websites and social media
Assess and refer volunteers
Provide ongoing advice and support in managing and retaining volunteers
Provide support in accessing and managing any grants/ funding by individuals or Corporates.
Organise regular campaigns and engagements including host organisation and volunteer recognition and awards.

HVT’s Expectations from Host Organizations

  • Share its Volunteer Policy in writing with the Volunteer clearly stating the organization’s expectations and the rules and regulations to be followed during the course of volunteering.
  • Orient and inform the Volunteer on Do’s and Don’ts for volunteers, potential risks of the region (natural and unnatural) and means to handle the same in the event of an emergency.
  • Address the Volunteer’s queries and fears satisfactorily and provide sufficient information about the region, placement, responsibilities, support, etc. such that s/he is equipped to work fairly independently.
  • Explicitly state the support (accommodation, food, etc.) that the organization is willing to extend to the Volunteer.
  • Make every reasonable effort to ensure that the volunteer is not subjected to verbal, physical or sexual harassment.
