EcoDEVA is a non-profit NGO in India (175/2017/DSLA/EI-S-ED). Though EcoDEVA would mean as God of Environment Conservation in the local language, we have expanded it to an alternative acronym that stands for: EcoDEVA means – “Environment Conservation Oriented Development Alternatives”, and also, “Ethnic and Cultural Oriented Development Development Alternatives”. While working in rural-urban communities, we engage volunteers and interns to bring new ideas and energy in exchange of experiential learning and personal/professional development in a grass-roots level local and international development work. Our projects include – sustainable agriculture, natural resources management, water conservation, reforestation and wildlife conservation, animal care, environmental health, renewable energy, eco-building, micro-finance, micro-entrepreneurship, women empowerment, alternative education, etc.

Teaching Volunteer

"“Volunteering with EcoDEVA was probably one of the best experiences I have ever gained. Being able to work with under privileged children for four months is one of the luckiest things I have ever been able to do. I was lucky that I got to take off for 2 months and come to India to do such a memorable volunteer work."

Marketing and PR Intern

"I loved the experience working in a grassroots NGO. I gained valuable insights while engaging with women’s groups. Alongside I wrote blogs and marketed the NGO to a wider reach of volunteer audience. I will cherish this work for lifetime as it has helped me switch over my career to development sector."
