In the month of October, FSL India hosted 10 Long Term Volunteers from 5 different countries (Germany, Austria, France, Sweden, and Turkey).
Every evening we have organised different events for the exchange of Intercultural learning. First day was traditional Indian welcome , all the volunteers had chance to have Henna, Meanwhile volunteers had the opportunity to test their skills by working in a project for half day during the week. Volunteers were also presented the facts and figures of their countries to the school children during “Country Presentation” session. They had chance to saw the Cultural dance “Barathnatyam”. They cooked there country food.
