Northeast is the richest part of India with its natural resources. It is the matter of great agony that the people of this land have no scope to utilize their own resources to reduce their poverty. No initiatives are taken in awakening the people to the key issues of sustainable development, to look over the linkage between ecology and human development and good management of their land, water and forest. Unless and until the young generation is educated to come forward and root out these evils, the future of the land is bleak.
To do something for the underprivileged, it is significant to enter deep into the people and know them in real. Let us be a true change agent for building the future of those in need and work not only for them but with them. This will bring far-reaching change in our actual practice of development; it is the only yardstick and a new beginning of a new horizon.
In this program, 'Traveler's Mission' welcomes you to the Northeast India – a land of indigenous people with unique cultures and breathtaking natural beauty and one of the selected and virgin destinations of the world with tremendous scope for responsive Eco-tourism.
In the Northeastern part of India most of the unemployed youths are frustrated and leading an uncertain life. Many of them are misguided, wrong directed and misused by the opportunist leaders. Some of them are suffering from psychological distress. In fact they have lost their faith in life due to no way of survival. Unless and until the young generation is educated to come forward and root out these evils, the future of the land is bleak.
Rural people here, like many other small traditional and balanced societies around the world, are particularly vulnerable to propaganda aimed at making them feel inferior and ashamed of their traditional ways of life. Old traditional masters are now passing away without transmitting their knowledge and skills. Unfortunately, today's youth are generally influenced by western cultures and do not realize the value of their own cultural heritage. These traditions may be lost forever unless something is done at the grass-root level to preserve and teach their values and benefits along with the general education.
Shrouded by mighty Himalayan hills, the entire North-East region is believed to be one of the most beautiful region in South Asia in terms of fetching immense opportunities of ecotourism. The dense forests lying in foothills of Himalayan hills are stunning in their natural beauty, and are home to many of wildlife parks including Manas National Park and Kaziranga National Park, which are natural World Heritage Site. Besides, numerous of lovely waterfalls and caves are another beautiful attraction of the wonderful land of North-East India.
North-East India lie deep in the lap of easternmost Himalayan hills in north-eastern part of India. Connected to rest of India by merely 20 km of wide land (at Siliguri, West Bengal), the North-East India shares over 2,000 km of border with Bhutan, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh.
Guwahati 'The Light of the East' is the gateway to the North East region. The Nine Planet Temple on Chitrachal Hill in the heart of the capital city on the southern bank of river Brahmaputra is an important centre for the study of Astronomy and Astrology. This is the main station for the Mission from where you will enter different villages of Assam, Nagaland and Meghalaya by different transports like steam boat, ferry, bus, train, small vehicles and bicycle. It is a popular destination for tourists and visitors from India and Abroad round the year. The program may be extended to other states of the region subject to the term of volunteering and other conditions.
This community oriented actions and participatory research program is to experience the environmental resource, ecological factors in relation to human resource development, democracy, human rights and social, political and cultural differences within the country.
'Traveler's Mission' provides you the unique opportunity to get into the natives, be a part of them and learn about their land, culture, way of living, the prospects for their sustainable development etc. Staying with the locals you will find the relation between human values and tradition and the linkage between cultural beliefs, environment and socioeconomic stability.

ISSWAR has a house in the heart of the Guwahati city of Assam, which provides accommodation for the Missionaries. And also the family members of the Mission from the different villages arranges for the volunteer's stay with them. These arrangements provide only simple accommodations and local food with the people without any extra facilities, which give the Missionaries all the privilege to get into the people and be one with them. If you have an understanding mind, a mentality to trust others, love for the human family and this small planet Earth, willingness to take initiatives and work independently and collaboratively in a multicultural context, and the capacity to adjust with the living style of the poor people, you get the real value of human life in this Mission.
