    AOL Foundation has pedagogically adopted 2 primary schools in Leh (Ladakh). We run these programs largely through volunteers sharing their expertise from photography to language learning. Could you please add AOL Foundation (contact aolfoundation@artoflearning.in or payal@artoflearning.in) to this?

  • 41 Places to Volunteer Travel Across India Compiled by: India Untravelled and The Alternative
  • Travel. Go solo. Volunteer. Talk to the locals. Go off the beaten path. Live in a village. Write about someone's story. Find a lake with no name. Climb a mountain. Try a dish you've never heard of before. Worship the earth. Share your darkest secret with a stranger. Go without a ticket. Carry a backpack. Give someone a hug. Take an impulsive trip. When was the last time you tried something new?
