Volunteering in Goa – Teaching and Orphanage Work in Goa
In January 2014, I volunteered for two weeks in Goa, India. I had the experience of my life; I loved meeting the other volunteers, exploring the area during the introduction week, spending time at the projects and learning so much about not only Indian culture but the cultures of the volunteers around me as well. I can’t say that I have a favourite part of volunteering in Goa at the Teaching and Orphanage Work project; the whole experience was incredible and suited me down to the ground!

We left to Singburi after nearly a week in busy, noisy, and tiresome Bangkok.
The bus ride was long and frustrating, but once we got off we saw a familiar face. I recognized her from pictures on GoEco’s website and cheered up immediately. The organization came to give us food and rest before tonight’s reception. Continue reading Liran’s post…
