Questions & Answers About this Opportunity

I am currently working in Bangalore. So is it possible for me to provide my services online rather than travelling to Pondicherry?

Dear Vinita, Thank you for your question. Actually, we will need the volunteer to be present here at our offices, and on the field. The marketing we do is aimed at the rural women of Tamil Nadu, it is mostly below-the-line marketing. It will entail some local actions, cooking demonstrations and trials. Women here only believe in what they see (and tried)! Kind regards, Xavier
