India was wonderful!

I learned so much about India and its culture by doing this wonderful program. The program helps you to the fullest and I believe it was one of the best ways to see India. I would love to go through this program again and see more of the Southern part of India. One month was great but not really long enough. I loved working with the communities and feeling as part of it. They are so appreciative and love that you love to help them and their children. The food , people, facts, culture, all where amazing!

How can this program be improved?
The safety at night was a concern of mine once. But that was about it. They listened and responded the best they could. The pick up at the airport could had been more organized.
Yes, I recommend this program
