(Pre)paratory Post

On July 20th, Austin and I will be flying to Kharel (town), Gujarat (state), India until the end of next May. Our time will be spent doing manual labor at a hospital ran by a fantastic organization called the Gram Seva Trust.

Austin and I will be using this blog to keep everyone up to date on our adventures 🙂 Our goal will be to post once a week after we arrive. Until then, there are a few articles below:

For those friends and family members who might be worried – this article is for you.

If instead you’d like to take a more critical / analytical view of our year abroad, this article and this article about voluntourism would be more up your ally. We are excited to start this journey but realize that the people who will most benefit from this trip will be ourselves.

 

Cheers & Smiles,
