To show you how rewarding this experience can be, this is Caroline's story from volunteering in Goa, India in 2017.

"My 6-week volunteering experience was so much more amazing than I ever imagined. I fell in love with all of the children and the staff that I spent time with, and I think I actually came away learning more from them than they could ever learn from me."
