Reviews & Multimedia
This has been a very eye opening experience for me. I have done so many things that some people could only dream of. I couldn’t have had a better experience traveling to a poverty stricken country. The support was good and helped in a lot of ways.
It was an amazing experience. I come back to my home very happy and grateful. I want to come back to continue this great program very soon. It was excellent. I felt like I was at home all the time.
I got exactly what I was hoping for when I booked this trip. I learned a lot about how to help injured and disable animals while also learning about a new culture. It was a whole new adventure everyday and I am already planning a second trip to India.
