Wondering what a Restoration Works trip is like?
The Bichli Haveli Project in India is off to a great start, and we’d like you to see it for yourself during our upcoming New Year’s trip.
Whether you’re a seasoned traveler or a first-time overseas volunteer, a 12-day trip to India can be a big commitment. Join us for a live webinar to see the December 29-January 9 trip come to life:
- discover what life on the project will be like
- find out where you’ll stay, what you’ll eat, and what you can expect to see and do
- meet the trip Group Leader, Gretchen Worth
- ask your pressing questions
Register below to learn all you need to know as we work with our local Indian partners to restore a 140-year-old haveli (nobleman’s house) in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, into a community resources center as the focal point of a neighborhood renewal program.
