M&R Episode 016: How to design a life around helping others and surfing in third world countries.
In Episode 016 I spoke with Adam Monaghan cofounder of Project Wave of Optimism (Project WOO) in southern Nicaragua. Project Woo is a NGO that helps costal villages anticipate and prepare for the impending influx of tourism due to surf-able waves in the region. After the Peace Corp. Adam designed a life of public service and surfing in a magical little Nicaraguan fishing village called Gigante. He gives great insight into how he made his life choices and some actionable tips for anyone who wants to get started down a similar path of volunteering for Project Woo, the Peace Corp. or starting your own NGO. Enjoy!
