episode 22: How to NOT Lose Your Mind as an NGO/Aid Worker

by Invisible India Podcast

You are one person. In our digital influencer world, there is something sacred about impacting people one by one, face to face.

-Jessica on surviving as an NGO worker

This episode is for the people who are long term NGO employees, aid workers or those volunteering in an under-privileged environment. Maybe you are burnt out from seeing hard stuff on a day in and day out basis and from being confronted daily with human pain and suffering.

Even if you’re not in an extreme situation, maybe you are a person whose soul is simply exhausted from serving others.


In the episode, Jessica dives into tips of how to dig in and stay physically, emotionally and mentally healthy in everything from a mildly challenging environment to hostile living situation. This is a conversation beyond how wash your fruits and vegetables or what bug spray to use in a developing country. This is about surviving and adjusting to the hard stuff that wears on you over time.
(We apologize for background noise in parts of the episode. Our office was having an AC installed, so it had to be recorded at home.)

The Invisible India Podcast’s opening and closing music is performed by Christopher Hale on Sitar and Ed Hanley on Tabla on Raag Bhimpalasi.
