Snapshot

Many of Goa’s communities are still in need of education and social services to rise out of poverty. Publicly sponsored education, child care and health services suffer from a lack of funding and effective management. Poverty and illiteracy is often the result. Volunteering within this community helps these families living in disheartening surroundings, cut off from mainstream social development of any kind.
