We four of friends joined this Holiday Excursion with Sankalp Volunteer. I strongly recommend it to everyone who looking for a short and meaning holiday trip to India to see the real side of how one person can make a big difference. The kids at school were wonderful and I can't describe well enough how much they gave me just with that one smile I was able to put on their face. I do hope I made a small difference in their life, as they sure made a huge one in mine. If you are looking for great place, great travel experience, filled with amazing children, this is the right place for you :)
