Craigslist: Volunteer in Hampi

While volunteer programs with a fee make me slightly uncomfortable, this looks interesting…

As seen on craigslist:

August 17 – August 30, 2009
September 14 – September 27, 2009
October 12 – October 25, 2009

Located in the central part of the state of Karnataka, in the southern part of India, Hampi is definitely one of the most interesting travel destinations on the map of India. It is famous for its ruins belonging to the erstwhile medieval Hindu kingdom of Vijayanagar, now declared a World Heritage site. The temples of Hampi, its monolithic sculptures and monuments are breathtaking. The Hindu style of architecture found at Hampi speaks of the splendor of the Vijayanagar Empire.

The volunteer projects in Hampi will concentrate on the protection of the cultural heritage site and on creating awareness among the locals and the tourists. The volunteers will be involved in planting trees and plants, thereby converting dry areas into beautiful spots for an eye to rest on. The project activities will include physical work and will require a lot of creativity and motivation from the volunteers to convey the message through drama, plays, etc.

Volunteers should be 18 years old and over

How to be a warrior

Be like Sean Casey. Sean Casey believes in something. He believes that gay people around the world should be safe. Since in many countries gay people are in danger of being killed or arrested for their sexual preference, Sean Casey goes to countries such as Rwanda, Pakistan, Lebanon, and coming soon, Afghanistan to help those people who live in constant fear. Sean Casey doesn’t sit around in his pajamas watching TV and thinking about what he could be doing but what a pain it would be to actually do it. He just does it. I want to be like Sean Casey.  read more
