Hi! Welcome to my site dedicated to providing a resource for those considering doing service abroad, specifically in Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta), India.
There are many facets that go into volunteering in a developing country, and I created this web site in order to minimize the complications and questions that come up. This was the brilliant idea of a college professor of mine; rather than have us take a final exam, this was an ongoing project we worked on throughout the semester. It was his hope that others could use the information we learned in order to learn for themselves.
Throughout this web site, one will find information about my experiences volunteering as well as resources and information regarding the country of India and the Missionaries of Charity. Look around, and I hope you find valuable resources that will further your process towards discerning whether volunteering in Kolkata, India is right for you.
