Make our hostel your home away from home!

The experience

Volunteer opportunities are centered on community capacity building with opportunities to help in schools, orphanages, conservation, and health-related activities. In addition, I conduct a “Mobile Clinic” catered specifically to those with a background in medical science. The purpose of this clinic is to provide basic health needs and tests to people in villages that are unable to gain access to a hospital :)
