Ms.Sarah This is me.....
Anna :- Background is forestry and I now work in public land management, with a focus on encouraging sustainable tourism and recreation on public land. This involves policy development and managing more specific projects to grow tourism in rural areas to generate income for communities.
Sarah :- Background in psychology and counseling and I now work in support work for people who have many issues which prevent them from working (e.g. mental health, drug + alcohol addiction, family relationship breakdowns).
The Project Work :
Anna & Sarah : Teaching
Length of working day and variety and number of activities was perfect.
It was a fabulous and authority insight into village life, and it was great to build something and then see it in use.
We thoroughly enjoyed being part of the community for the week, and learning about their way of life and culture.

We had a wonderful week, we learned a lot about Rajasthani culture and we would highly recommend the program and the guesthouse to other travelers. Surendra’s knowledge and connections within the community ensured that we felt comfortable and welcome in the village. This is a credit to him and the work of his organization.
