In the month of January 2017, FSL India Bangalore has hosted 2 Long Term Volunteers (LTV) from Germany & France. Volunteer has gone through different sessions to be well prepared for their successful journey in India.
Regarding the orientation, we had developed the activities which we usually carry out during the orientation week covered the following sessions: Indian welcome, Expectation and Fears, Conflict in communication, Safety, Understand Cultural Indicator, Introduction about FSL India, Indian lifestyle, and Social concerns of India, project information and Indian pedagogy, volunteer’s role and responsibility.
Feedback from Volunteers:
*The orientation is really important. We can understand many things about culture, what we can and cannot to do… we need one orientation week before our stay in India. Thank you for this week!
*Yes, definitely! I learned a lot about India, got a lot of information.
*During this orientation I came to know what challenges I am going face are.
