DO SOMETHING AMAZING THIS SUMMER, WINTER OR SPRING !
“I volunteered by teaching English both at a school and at an all girls’ orphanage for two months. It has been the best experience of my life so far. I really got to know the children I was teaching and seeing the children’s English improve over my time was an incredible feeling. From being introduced to yoga to tasting delicious flavoursome Indian cuisine and living in “God’s own country”, has left me eager to return. I have made friends across the world who made my time spent in Kerala unforgettable; Kerala is beautiful and you will gain fun memories.”
