Exciting News: Volunteering in Women's Empowerment Program in Kochi, India In March and April 2023, I have the opportunity to work as a volunteer contributor in a Women's Empowerment Program in Kochi, Kerala, India. As a passionate individual, I am thrilled to lend my support and contribute to a cause that aims to improve the lives of women in the community. My primary goal is to assist these women on the ground by sharing my knowledge and helping them to discover their potential. Through this experience, I expect to challenge myself and grow while contributing to the overall well-being of the community. The project focuses on providing education and resources to empower women, including vital survival skills and entrepreneurship training. My objective is to help challenged communities identify business opportunities and grow their businesses, even if it's small. This experience will also enable me to connect with African communities and relate to their struggles. To make this project successful, I am seeking funding for a two-month duration. I am grateful for any support, whether through thoughts, social media shares, or financial contributions. Your support will help make a difference in the lives of these women and contribute to the overall well-being of the community. #WomenEmpowermentProgram #VolunteerAbroad #Kochi #Kerala #India #Education #Resources #Entrepreneurship #SurvivalSkills #BusinessOpportunities #FinancialContributions #CommunityDevelopment #OverallWellBeing #SupportWomen #MakeADifference #InternationalVolunteering #CommunityService #SocialImpact #EmpowerWomen #GenderEquality #GirlPower #GlobalCitizenship #HumanitarianWork #SocialGood #EmpoweringCommunities #SustainableDevelopment #PositiveChange #VolunteerExperience #SkillsDevelopment #LeadershipDevelopment #CulturalExchange #TravelForGood #ImpactTravel #DoGoodFeelGood.


Homestays in Fort Kochi offer a fantastic opportunity for travellers seeking an authentic experience of local culture and lifestyle, combined with comfortable accommodations and warm hospitality. With its rich history, cultural heritage, and picturesque surroundings, Fort Kochi is a popular tourist destination, and homestays have become a popular choice for visitors seeking a more personal and unique experience. Many homestays are in traditional heritage buildings, such as Kerala-style houses, Portuguese mansions, and British bungalows, which have been converted into guest accommodations. Homestays provide comfortable rooms, basic amenities, and meals like bed and breakfasts or guesthouses. However, the personalised service, local knowledge, and home-cooked food that guests can enjoy is what sets homestays apart. In addition, homestays offer unique activities such as exploring plantations, village visits, picnics, herding animals, temple tours, cooking classes, cultural tours, and ayurvedic treatments, making for a truly memorable experience. One of the most significant advantages of homestays is the opportunity to interact with local families who act as hosts and share their knowledge of the area and culture. Guests can also participate in celebrating festivals, which is a fantastic way to experience the rich and diverse Indian culture.

I quickly advanced to managing aviation logistics and ground handling for all charters and expeditions across the continent.

Today, I am proud to be a co-leader and full-fledged leader for various expeditions.
