A year in introspection from a cliched normal timeline of your life—that is a gap year. Taking time off after your high school to understand more about yourself while exploring various parts of the world, that is a perfect layman’s interpretation of a gap year. A gap year cannot be defined before it is experienced because for anyone who has ever taken a gap year, the experience is truly personal which is why a single definition cannot explain what a gap year is. It is a year for you to step out of your comfort zone, explore and learn about everything else but most importantly.
Giving Back Through Travel
Each and every one of our pre-packaged trips contain a community-based volunteer component, be it teaching English, working to build a school, doing a community gardening project, or a host of other things! In addition, we allocate 10% of the profit from each of our trips to the same local NGO, to help fund its other projects, which include livelihood support, sustainable agriculture efforts, clean water initiatives, and educational programs, to name a few.
