“I chose PMGY as the company to travel with over the summer after my AS year for a number of reasons – they were one of the very few offering a 17+ age range which made it more accessible for me. My time in India – from working with the kids both at the girls orphanage and the slum school to doing the Golden Triangle trip, to exploring numerous temples in Delhi – was an eye-opening, unforgettable experience, and I would urge anyone (particularly younger travellers) to get out there and see the world while helping others.” – HANNAH BELOK | UNITED KINGDOM
