Volunteer in India

We are raising money to spend next summer volunteering in India. We will spend the first few weeks at Parijat Academy, a school for underprivileged children in remote tribal villages. Working alongside their amazing staff we will teach english, design after-school opportunities for the children, and work to rebuild part of the school which was devastated by recent flooding. After Parijat closes for the summer at the end of June we will travel to another part of India for more volunteering. Although this part of our plan is more vague, we hope to work with victims of sex trafficking for the remainder of the summer.

As amazing as this opportunity will be, what will be truly unique is that we will be able to share this adventure with our grandmother. Our grandma is 80 years old and the most amazing woman we know. The hardship she has faced and overcome in her life is inspiring, and the wisdom she can share with us as well as the children at Parijat will be irreplaceable. Sure, we could wait a few years before we go to India until we graduate from college and get our finances under control, but this trip isn’t just about our personal goals, its about sharing those goals and experiences with the woman who inspired us to leave this world a little better than we found it.
