Here we are again from FSL India’s Centre for Experiential Living-Kundapur, with news about what is going on in our place. October month arrived and, with it, loads of festivals like Dussehra and Deepavali. We will celebrate them all, however, our work will not stop!
We are 2 Law students, Ujjwal and Vikas, from Delhi, pursuing BA LLB (Hons). We came to FSL-India for an internship based on some major social issues that we wanted to work on.
In the month of October 2017, FSL-India Kundapur hosted 2 Long-Term Volunteers from France, at our CEL (Centre for Experiential Living), Kundapur.
In the month of October, FSL-India hosted 5 Long-Term Volunteers from different countries, i.e. France, Germany, Belgium, Slovakia and Italy.
They are not from India, but they came with a purpose. They decided to live and work for a long time in India. Language is one of the basic barriers to communicating with local people, so I am here to teach Kannada.
Once a week, we, the participants of the Sea Turtle Conservation program (STC) of FSL-India, drive to one of the fishermen communities here, in the area of Kundapur. Meeting the fishermen is one of the most interesting tasks in our voluntary work. There, we have the opportunity to talk with the fishermen about different problems, e.g. the waste problem or overfishing that affect the fishermen, as well as the sea turtles.
On Friday, 29th September, at FSL-India’s CEL-Kundapura, the staff and volunteers, totally 20 members, participated in Ayudha Pooja.

Here we are letting you know about our hopefully fruitful wish tree!
But, what is a wish tree?
Greetings from FSL-India’s Centre for Experiential Living, Kundapur! As part of our training goal of empowering and educating all our staff and volunteers, we had a new training this month, conducted by Mr. C. Doreswamy, our Joint Director.
The first day, when I stepped into CEL I had a “WOW” impression seeing nature soo close.
The 28th International Youth Forum was a week-long program that conglomerated individuals from various backgrounds, nationalities, and ideas to address the very relevant issue of strengthening regional cooperation by youth exchange.
When I first got to Dharamshala to meet up with my FSL-India volunteer group, I had no idea what to expect. I had read about the culture and the project we would be working on, but nothing could have prepared me for the experience I would have during my stay there.
FSL-India organized a work camp from 11th-24th September 2017 at our Centre for Experiential Living- Kundapura. The theme of the work camp was Sustainable Agriculture, Yoga, Culture & Kids.
