Embrace the opportunity to serve at Mother Teresa's Home for the Destitute and Dying; support local Tibetan refugees through language exchange with Tibetan monks; stay in a communal organic farm in the foothills of the Himalayas; help plant new crops and harvest fresh fruit from the garden to make healthy meals together in the kitchen.
