A brief account of the Dirty Wall Projects efforts in India. My frustrations with bureauocracy, paperwork and religious bias while trying to volunteer in India and other developing countries drove me to be a one person charitable organization. I employ locals to inspire me and with the support of generous donors, we work together tirelessly in orphanages, slums, and have held one day health camps. Read this book, check out the Dirty Wall Project blog, and be inspired to do your own volunteering or become a donor.
The “Dirty Wall Project” is an effort to fill immediate, small needs in the developing countries that I travel in. I have travelled extensively for 8 years and during that time I have sought out volunteering opportunities or ways to contribute to the local economies of the countries I visit. Through the frustration of trying to volunteer with agencies or groups, I have developed the Dirty Wall Project as a way to fill needs without paperwork, grand gestures, religious bias, or bureaucracy.
