How have past volunteers spent their time during and after the placement?
The evenings are an important time to share the day’s experiences with others in the group. They can also afford an opportunity to learn more about overseas development and Judaism. As last year, volunteers will complete a short Torah L’Am course during orientation, with weekly sessions taking place whilst in Ghana/India. But the evenings are not all about work and study! They can be shared with your hosts and group members, enjoying the local culture, cuisine and recreational activities. Past groups have also invited host organisations to share in making havdalah. After the working weeks, take as much time as you want to travel around the country, as there is much to see in both countries.
