One would surely counter the idea of learning about a country in a fortnight, and rightly so. After all, it is just not possible to understand a nation, which has been established and been growing for centuries, in just a couple of weeks. But who said you cannot brush through its history, have a quick peek into the lifestyle, and live like a native for a jiffy?
Volunteering Solutions provides a unique opportunity to all the enthusiastic volunteers who face time crunch but still crave to volunteer abroad and make a difference. The 2 Weeks Special Volunteer & Travel Program offered by VolSol is a perfect mix of volunteering work and traveling to the most popular places in that particular country. In just a span of 14 days, one can do something worthy for the underprivileged folks of the land – live with them, get to know them, and help them out in whichever way possible.
