Located in India’s southwest and one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, Goa is world renowned for its beautiful sandy beaches, spectacular sunsets and a laid-back lifestyle that comes from its strong Portuguese cultural heritage.
Indeed Goa attracts more travelers than many other locations in India, and is particularly attractive among youngsters thanks to the vast array of activities it offers as well as its reputation for all-night beach parties.
While getting hands-on experience in community work, volunteers will also be able to enjoy the best that Goa has to offer from their accommodation in the south near to Majorda Beach, a serene and peaceful area that is largely untouched by heavy tourist traffic.
Transport is provided to and from the base and accommodation is safe and comfortable. It’s usually shared and meals are provided. Free WiFi means you can easily stay in touch with friends and family back home.
If you crave a laid-back Indian adventure surrounded by languid fishing villages, beautiful rice paddies, swaying coconut groves and magnificent beaches while helping to educate underprivileged children, this is the project for you – especially if you don’t mind tackling the challenges of heat, humidity and monsoon rain.
