You all might have come across a moment where you have wanted to run away from everything and settle down in the mountains or a city far away or a beach side from everyday monotony. The only issue lies here is not knowing what you might do once you reach there.
Even after making up the mind and solidifying intent to escape, the thought of not having enough money will bother you. You can do a lot of things like joining a call center or find odd ball jobs or can even do volunteer work and indulge in the concept of volunteer travel. You can teach in health care, educate, form policies, etc.
Here we bring you the list of few such organizations which can let you be a volunteer and do some good karmas:
