Our senses were awakened – Sara Aparicio Melquiades, Team Leader–Spain re EIL Summer Teen Camp on Women Empowerment, Bangalore & Mysore

These 3 weeks (12th July-2nd August 2017) started with many expectations, excitement and lots of energy to work, learn and help a bit in the local community. Of course, the expectations we had were totally wrong, and India had way more things to offer as we could have ever imagined.

We lived many new experiences that we will never forget, like the first tuk tuk ride, or living a common Indian life.

All our senses were awakened during this fantastic journey – tasting all the different flavors, wearing the silky sarees, eating with our hands, and listening to the rhythms of Karnataka (Kannada songs).

For many members of my team, this was the first step to a new way of thinking and sharing spaces with other people.

I personally enjoyed a lot being able to acquire so many inter-cultural tools for my personal development, while my team was immersed as well, in this wonderful learning process.
