Applications for the Fall 2013 session of Tevel B’Tzedek are now open. And even though this year’s flyer doesn’t use any of my photography*, I’m more than happy to pass it along in case you’re interested [click to enlarge]:
The program will begin in October and last for four months. It’s a great time of year to be in that part of the world — not too rainy and not too cold — and your stint with TBT can easily be rolled into a longer trip through Southeast Asia.
That said, I know that after spending three months in Sundrawoti — and spending a considerable amount of that time just wandering around the area with my camera — there were still plenty of places in the immediate area I would have liked to get to and people I would have liked to talk to, and didn’t. What I’m trying to communicate is that even if your excursion doesn’t take you outside the borders of Nepal, or even outside the borders of your volunteer area, you are still certain to have an unforgettable experience — and hopefully do some good work in the process.
If you are at all interested in somehow thinking about considering volunteering with Tevel B’Tzedek in Nepal at any point, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me about it. I can’t recommend the experience enough. It looks like you have April 20 to apply, which is appropriate I suppose.
And if Nepal’s not your thing, or if four months sounds like a long time, or you really don’t speak Hebrew (as distinguished from kind of do speak Hebrew), or you are just looking for something else to do in addition to TBT while you are in Asia anyway, or you just want to have an awesome time, my good friend Erin is currently processing applications over at Justifi for a trip to Thailand she’s organizing this summer. It looks like it should really be a blast (even if only because she’s involved):
*Even if they didn’t use any of my pictures for recruiting, at least they still use them for fundraising:
