Jaipur, India

I had such an amazing time checking out the volunteer vacation program in Jaipur! I've been to India many times but this was my first time alone, without family and I loved it. Not only did I feel comfortable, I also enjoyed my time seeing the sights and meeting with the locals. I also enjoyed being able to interact and educate children and get to know the women in the empowerment camp. Awesome time!

The people of India - they were courteous and friendly. The children in our class - they were magical and curious as are children everywhere. Having volunteered twice before, once in Costa Rica and once in Hoi An, Vietnam, we were somewhat familiar with working in less economically advantaged areas. The orientation material provided by Globeaware was accurate, pertinent, and helpful. The shortage of water and waste disposal facilities in Jaipur and Delhi made us even more keenly aware of the outsized impact American waste has on the global environment.
