'I took a short sabbatical from work in November 2013 and decided to come to India. I was helping at a small school in Fort Kochi, teaching English, Maths, Science and the odd nursery rhyme. The school where I volunteered had amazing teachers and the kids were great. Ridhi and the team organised everything brilliantly - from cycling tours to the backwaters, to hosting me with a family that made my stay feel like home. If you're going to volunteer in India then I highly recommend Volunteering Journeys'
