GoVolunteer GoIndia

ABOUT INDIA

3

India is simply a kaleidoscope of ethnic, cultural and demographic diversity, offering a natural environment of freedom of choice and voice to all who reside in its democracy. Its unique combination of vibrance and spice is part of it’s extraordinary spectrum for travelers, leaving the ability to inspire, thrill and frustrate. India’s ancient culture, rivers, mountains and vegetation make it a wonderful place to stay, a seemingly distant land from the busy streets of Mumbai. Such variety in one country, from electric Delhi to butter-chicken rich Chandigarh, enables so much to explore. You can imagine the range of experiences, love them or loathe them, they are all part of the Indian experience.

GoVolunteer GoColombia 7

ABOUT COLOMBIA Colombia is a surprising fusion from modern cites with skyscrapers and nightclubs, to beautiful Caribbean beaches, not to mention the possibility of Amazon safaris. With such a dreamlike quality to Colombia, with endless sun at the equator and the warmth of locals, the only problem is you won’t want to leave! The culture, as well as the weather, varies by altitude, across the vast Colombian landscape, with geographical isolation keeping aspects natural. Such is also the case with the easy to understand Spanish. This leaves the Colombian paradise to enjoy and the perfect place to fall in love with, and ultimately explore.
