Volunteer Stories

Proud to have led this fine group of 8 dedicated volunteers to Udaipur, India to work with restorationworksinternational on the restoration of a centuries old Haveli, repurposing it into a community and heritage center that supports migrant woman laborers and will provide a place to make and sell traditional Rajasthani arts and crafts made and sourced locally. Here we are on day one, along with our construction supervisor, taking a much needed break on the front stoop of the Bichli Haveli, Udaipur, India. #preservation #historicpreservation #restoration #historicpreservation #india #udaipur #restorationworksinternational #communitydevelopment #bichlihaveliproject #internationaldevelopment #globalheritage #oneworld #rwivolunteerstories #volunteer #volunteervacations #ngo #nonprofit #philanthropy #dogood #socialgood #giveback #payitforward #karma ...

Today it rained and snowed in our corner of the Nepali Himalayas, so we stayed inside, painted pictures, uncovered ancient sculptures with Lama Shashi and Chakra.

"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" -Andy Warhol. Who knew that my 15 minutes would come on the streets of Udaipur, India, speaking to indiatvnews about the work of our global NGO restorationworksinternational and our non profit mission to promote sustainable global community development, heritage preservation, and provide a platform to help migrant woman laborers find stability by teaming with the Udaipur nonprofit jandaksha . I’m happy to be fortunate enough to promote and pursue these worthy pursuits! 🙏 #indiatv #restoration #preservation #globalheritage #oneworld #crosscultural #restorationworksinternational #15minutesoffame #media #ngo #nonprofit #nonprofitorganization #giveback ...

Our nonprofit, Restoration Works International's Fall trip is October 20-31, 2014 to finish the 10 year restoration work of the 300 year old Tibetan Buddhist Monastery, Chhairo gompa, high in the Nepali Himalayas near the Tibet border.
We still have some last minutes openings. If interested in joining: info@restorationworksinternational.org. Or join me for a Spring 2015 trip, May 4-15, 2015. I'd love to share this mythical corner of the world.
