Travel to India with WE – for free*. Thanks to Virgin Atlantic, 30 young people aged 12-18 travel to one of our WE Villages communities every summer in Rajasthan, India. On these trips, you can:

  • Experience the culture, history and way of life in a vibrant and dynamic country
  • Volunteer in a rural village, helping build a school or a well
  • Participate in interactive workshops to explore global issues

The Virgin Atlantic Be the Change Volunteer Trip Scholarship, generously provided by the Virgin Atlantic Foundation, is a key part of Virgin Atlantic’s commitment to investing in young people in the UK as young leaders and global citizens.

The Virgin Atlantic Be the Change Volunteer Trip Scholarship is run by ME to WE, partner of WE Charity and one of the unique organisations within the WE movement. ME to WE has been facilitating life-changing volunteer trips overseas since 2002.
