2-Day Rice Giving Experience
Now, YOU can make an impact as our guest working side-by-side with the Rice Love Giving Team!
You will begin your experience with a brief orientation on the amazing opportunity ahead of you the evening before in Hyderabad, India. The next morning you will leave the hustle of Hyderabad, making a 3-hour drive out to a peaceful village. Shortly after you arrive in the village, you will walk door-to-door meeting humble families that live on very few dollars per day. Your guide will interview these families and interpret the local language so that you can write down their responses, which will be uploaded as Stories on our website. The following day, you will help take photos of the families and distribute 25 kg bags of rice to each family. You’ll be back in Hyderabad by 5pm.
Transportation, accommodations, and meals are all included. You should wear closed toed shoes and comfortable clothes. The experience includes a free Rice Love polo shirt and a hat that you will wear during the giving. This will be an experience that you will never forget. Read this first-hand experience.
