We are so grateful for all the people who comes to serve with us here in India. We are happy to host our volunteers and provide on-going training, lodging accommodations, round-trip travel to/from the airport, and spiritual oversight & accountability to our volunteers during their stay.

We expect for our volunteers to be fully committed to the work we are doing.

By submitting this application, I acknowledge that…

I have filled out this application honestly and to the best of my ability.

Should emergency medical treatment be necessary, I authorize SCH or one of its representatives to act on my behalf and approve appropriate treatment required for my well-being. I understand that SCH genuinely cares about their volunteers and although they will work hard to help me remain healthy and safe, SCH cannot accept financial responsibility for my health or any accidents or medical related emergencies that I may encounter. i.e. that may occur during my time with SCH.

By clicking submit below, I individually and on behalf of my heirs, hereby release and hold harmless SCH, its employees, volunteers, directors, and any sponsors in the event of death, injury, accident, disease, terrorist act, weather condition, inadequate medical supplies or treatment, damage to or loss of my personal property which happens during my time with SCH, or participating in any related activities.

In the event that I refuse to adhere to the rules/policies of SCH during my trip, as outlined in the ICM (SCH's parent ministry) volunteer agreement (separate form), I understand that I may be asked to return home at my own expense.

By clicking submit below, I hereby agree to pay any fees charged to SCH due to damage caused by myself or due to me personally by not following the rules or by not using reasonable discretion.

I agree to pay, personally or through fundraising, the required ministry donation for my time of service. I understand that the amount is due in full before my arrival in India. I understand that any amounts raised through fundraising should go directly to Sarah's Covenant Homes, with an accompanying note saying they are on my behalf.
