Facts about South Asia

The varied landscape and culture of South Asia is a draw for many couples and families who are planning a trip abroad. For international travelers, this region of the world offers many beautiful scenes, a rich cultural experience, extreme outdoor adventures, and incredible relaxation. Tourists planning an international trip to South Asia can do more than take in the amazing views and culture; travelers interested in responsible tourism can give back to the communities they visit and make a difference by packing donations for local non-profit groups and service projects.

One of the many service projects that voluntourists can help while visiting India is the Indo International School. This non-profit has been working to provide economically deprived children an education. For travelers in Nepal who are interested in preserving the wildlife, a Student-Eco-Club at a local high school is working to protect the natural habitat of the Royal Bengal Tiger, the Asiatic Elephant, and the Greater One-horned Rhinoceros; they accept donations of wildlife books and posters, school supplies, and binoculars.
