Namaskara! My name is Stina and I am here in India for 4 months of volunteering. My project is located in Bangalore at a
care home and school for children living with HIV. As a volunteer I assist with what is needed, everything from administrative work, to teaching English or to just spend time with the children. Although I experience a great time here, it is sometimes emotionally difficult to work with children living with HIV. Sadly, many of the children comes from a social background exposed to a lot of discrimination and stigmatization of HIV. Although HIV awareness is increasing in India, there are still many people that lack knowledge about what HIV is, how it is spread and how to prevent transmission. Luckily I get all the support I need from the staff and other volunteers at my project.
Actually I wanted to spend the night of my birthday with other volunteers, who are living nearby. I planned to go to a nice restaurant and to have dinner there, chats and everything else you’re looking for on your birthday.
