Day 03 to 06
Teaching at a kindergarten and an orphanage. You will have great fun helping the kindergarten teachers keeping these youngsters entertained by helping to teach songs, reading, writing, telling stories, playing games and generally being active with them. In the afternoons you will be at an orphanage teaching a range of subjects from English to Maths to crafts and playing games with the children.
Day 07 to 08
Free time. Take some time to explore what Goa has to offer - beaches, temples and old Goan churches - or maybe just spend the weekend relaxing on the beach. The choice is yours!
Day 09 to 13
Volunteering. Your chance to return to the kindergarten and the orphanage and work with your new found little friends for another 5 days of volunteering.
Free time. Another day to relax after your hard work at the project or maybe use some time for watersports.
Your beach stay starts here! Today is the day that you will transfer accommodation to your new guesthouse for two weeks of total chilling!
Day 16 to 28
Your turn to chill and enjoy! Now you can spend your time as you wish, relaxing on the beach or enjoying what Goa has to offer! After your hard two weeks work you can decide to go no further than topping up your tan on the golden sands while reading your books or you can spend your time exploring further afield. You could visit the Dudhsagar waterfalls and spice plantation or take an elephant ride. Alternatively make sure you check out all of the great beaches in this beautiful area. Palolem, Candolim and Arambol are all well worth a visit but there are loads more to dicsover for yourself! Whatever you decide to do Goa has a lot to keep everyone pleased!
Depart. Today is the day that you say goodbye to the glorious Goan sands for your journey back home or carry on your travels to onward destinations.
