The collaborators successfully completed the 19th Happy Move camp organised at New Delhi, from 9th – 21st July, 2017.
The thematic area of the whole camp is “Save Our Heritage”. Approx. 150 volunteers participated as mentors in the camp, with 100 volunteers from South Korea, 25 Indian volunteers from the Korean Cultural Centre, 6 artists and 6 employees from Hyundai Motors Company, South Korea.

FSL-India plays a vital role by regularly organising and implementing such mass events at New Delhi. This time, we selected 4 monuments with mutual consultation and approval of the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), such as Qutab Minar, Old Fort, Red Fort and Humayun’s Tomb, as well as 5 Delhi Tamil Education Association (DTEA) schools situated at RK Puram, Laxmibai Nagar, Pusa Road, Janak Puri and Moti Bagh, with the mutual understanding and basic needs, as per the school management.
This Global Youth Volunteering Program will ensure the completion of the above mentioned manual works, as well as the inter-cultural exchange between the 2 countries.
