Overview

The WorldStamp Gap Semester Service Program allows students to engage meaningfully in 2 countries: India and Vietnam. Designed for students ages 18 to 23, it interweaves volunteer service work, cultural immersion, language courses and travel.

As you explore India on this gap semester, you will bond with a cohort of 12-15 participants who also value community service, leadership and cultural immersion. Our projects in India are focused in the northern states of Himalchal Pradesh and Rajasthan where there is strong tradition and warm, lively people, and our efforts center around education and community development. There is no shortage of need, and no lack of magic in this mystical land.

Though Vietnam is now considered a "middle income country" about 70% of the population still lives in remote, rural areas with little public infrastructure. Our service work in Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is a fantastic introduction to all of the ethnic, cultural, and economic diversity of this geographic wonder that is Vietnam. Service projects are based on community needs and vary from trip to trip.
