I would suggest that you contact the listed voluntary organizations in your area and join them on you own initiative. People are definitely looking for volunteers as listed in the AID India post. So contact them and see if you can help. It wouldnt be feasible for them to contact you. Please take the first step as we need spirited people liek you.

I suggest that please contact the organization directly with the provided information. It would be infeasible for the organization to link up with you as they would lack bandwidth.
