FSL-India and Concordia UK organised a group camp in rural Bangalore called Venkatagiri kottai in the month of August. We had 12 female teen volunteers and 5 mentors and along with our 1 team leader.
Camp focused on agricultural activities like interaction with local farmers, farming activities in the village, visit pottery to make pots, silk worm farm to know about seri-culture, wall painting, educational drawing and teaching activities with kids.
Volunteers also had a chance to get know on Indian culture and traditional aspects by visiting historical monuments, Indian family visit and interacting with community people in the village. Volunteers also visited to many Hindu temples to know about the Hindu religion and the practices.
The volunteers really enjoyed their 2 weeks stay in India!!
