Volunteer Opportunity in India (Hyderabad/Secunderabad)
Location: Hyderabad/Secunderabad, India;
Description of Hyderabad, India:
Steeped in history, thronged with people and buzzing with commerce, the Old City of Hyderabad is one of India’s most evocative ancient quarters. Exploring the lanes of this district, with its chai shops and spice merchants, you’ll encounter a teeming urban masala of colour and commerce. Looming over the Old City is some of Islamic India’s most impressive architecture.
Hyderabad’s other pole is far younger and west of the centre – its Hi-Tech City, or ‘Cyberabad’, and other districts like Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills are replete with glittery malls, multiplexes, clubs, pubs and sleek restaurants.
Description of Secunderabad:
Secunderabad is the twin city of Hyderabad located in the Indian state of Telangana. Secunderabad was established in 1806 as a British cantonment. Although both the cities are together referred to as the twin cities, Hyderabad and Secunderabad have different histories and cultures, with Secunderabad having developed directly under British rule until 1948, and Hyderabad as the capital of the Nizams’ princely state of Hyderabad.
Geographically divided from Hyderabad by the Hussain Sagar lake, Secunderabad is no longer a separate municipal unit and has become part of Hyderabad’s Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC). Both cities are collectively known as Hyderabad and together form the fifth-largest metropolis in India.
