As the name suggests, the Community Development Projects essentially focus on the sustainable growth of the underprivileged communities in Third World countries. Make your gap year journey more meaningful by volunteering abroad and help someone smile. You can lend your helping hand in building houses, renovating schools, planting trees etc. You can also volunteer with kids at a daycare center or be a sports coach for those who have a zeal to learn a game. Your aim should be to improve the day-to-day lives of the locals as well as help them to have a better future. No matter how small your step might seem, you'll definitely be able to make an impact in their lives during your gap year abroad.
