Cameroon - November 2016

Independent Placement
Nepal - March 2010

"My name is India and so for obvious reasons I have always wanted to go and visit the country. I decided to take a gap year after finishing my A-levels to travel to the country, which is my namesake and to do some volunteering. I know lots of other girls, older than me, who had taken gap years to volunteer abroad, had spent a lot of money on their project, but found it to be a complete waste of time. I didn’t want to do that, and so I spent a very long time searching the web for a legitimate and reliable charity, which took volunteers to India. I decided AidCamps would be perfect."
