In the month of October, FSL-India hosted 5 Long-Term Volunteers from different countries, i.e. France, Germany, Belgium, Slovakia and Italy.
They are not from India, but they came with a purpose. They decided to live and work for a long time in India. Language is one of the basic barriers to communicating with local people, so I am here to teach Kannada.
Once a week, we, the participants of the Sea Turtle Conservation program (STC) of FSL-India, drive to one of the fishermen communities here, in the area of Kundapur. Meeting the fishermen is one of the most interesting tasks in our voluntary work. There, we have the opportunity to talk with the fishermen about different problems, e.g. the waste problem or overfishing that affect the fishermen, as well as the sea turtles.
On Friday, 29th September, at FSL-India’s CEL-Kundapura, the staff and volunteers, totally 20 members, participated in Ayudha Pooja.
