UPLIFTING TRAVEL EXPERIENCES
“I have loved my time teaching girls 6-8yrs old very much. They attended school each day full of comitment and enthusiasm. It was a joy to both encourage and observe them discovering new concepts. I advise all volunteers to go with no expectations as the programme can teach you a lot more than you can imagine.
The local team were very supportive and they were with us from start to finish. Fort Kochi and Kerala is filled with so much culture that we all enjoyed especially the markets and language classes.I have made life long friends here and memories I will treasure forever.”
