Restoration Works International

We are a nonprofit that uses volunteer tourism to restore cultural heritage sites alongside communities around the world, advancing sustainable development, cross-cultural understanding and celebration of their cultures and histories.


Tour fees are a charitable donation

As a volunteer participant, you receive a charitable donation receipt for your tour fee, which is tax deductable (consult with your tax professional). We direct your contribution into the restoration effort: providing dozens of jobs and job training for local people, purchasing material, and paying for local services, such as room and board. Your travel costs, such as airfare, visas, and lodging before and after the trip, are also tax deductable (consult with your tax professional).


Many ways to volunteer:

Join a tour to an RWI project
We are currently working in Udaipur, India at the Bichli Haveli project in majestic and historic Rajasthan. The community and RWI are restoring the beauty of an ancient house and renovating it for a community and heritage resource center. Tour dates are available throughout the year, and custom dates can be arranged for groups of six or more.

Lead a tour
Are you a RWI veteran? Ready to serve more? Have a big group? Become a group leader for our upcoming trips and be responsible for heading up a trip to a project site. We’ll give you the tools for pre-trip preparations and in-country coordination and leadership. RWI covers your trip fee and in-country costs – you’re responsible for your plane fare and visas. Generally, first preference is given to volunteers who have worked on-site on an RWI program.

Help from home
You can help in so many ways – recruit volunteers to work on site, host events, fundraise, write grants, and more! We can provide promotional materials, presentations and talking points for you to use.
