"When I first started with The Learning Tea, I had never worked in the not-for-profit sector before, but always felt the urge to make a positive difference in the world. While there, I felt connected to a good cause and was able to see how a not-for-profit works within the community. I would recommend this program to anyone looking to make an impact globally or wanting experience in developing a NGO. I know that I enjoyed my time with The Learning Tea and it inspired me to get involved with other organizations." - Ryan Erwin
"The Learning Tea is an incredible organization that strives to be sustainable, efficient and most importantly- is changing the lives of young women all around India. This organization is one I am proud to have interned with and am proud to volunteer for. If you want to learn the ins and outs of event planning, social media marketing and creative writing all in the name of a good cause and improving communities, this is the place for you. Dr. Bombay's is a beautiful environment to work in and the people are even better. Do this for your resume and do this for you." - Daniella Korwek
