Kailash International Retreat Centre is a volunteer-run charity and there are many ways you can support the activities of the Centre. Volunteering is a fun way to meet like-minded people, learn new skills and get more involved. Volunteering can be undertaken by anyone without training, or with minimal training, and can take as little or as much time as you wish. Every little help will be greatly appreciated!
