international volunteering is fun"My trip to Tibet was like a gift from God. It was magical, beautiful, raw, full of journey and discovery. I experienced the people's love for life, simplicity, and their unjaded curiosities for things beyond their experience and understanding. I experienced true human kindness and everyday I strove to be a better person because of it. I am forever grateful to United Planet for this opportunity and to the Tibet in-country hosts for their love and acceptance.
