When is the rainy season and can I join the programs during that time?

The monsoon begins in early June in Kerala, mid-June in Mumbai, and early to mid-July in the Himalayan region, concluding in September. The Thar Desert in Rajasthan, specifically Setrawa, receives minimal rainfall during the monsoon, and Jodhpur and Jaipur are generally dry.

During the monsoon, heavy rain is typical for several hours each day. Consequently, city streets often experience flooding as drains struggle to absorb the substantial water volume. Despite these conditions, interning or volunteering is still feasible during the monsoon. The primary inconvenience is likely to be wet clothes and shoes, which can be challenging to dry due to the high humidity. Consider bringing a few extra pairs of shoes and a change of clothes (or purchasing them locally). You can also acquire an umbrella or raincoat locally. An advantage of traveling during the monsoon is the lower transportation costs, and off-season accommodations are typically more affordable.
