You can try volunteering to build the local infrastructure such as schools and the library. Or you can distribute warm clothes and books to the Children of the privileged communities. You can teach the villagers about sanitation and health. You can volunteer in their agriculture works.
Further, instead of a hotel if you stay in a homestay, you can contribute to the development of the local community. Since many homestays are lunched by women, it will also help in the empowerment of local women.
