In the month of November, FSL-India hosted 7 Long-Term Volunteers from different countries, i.e. France, Germany, Belgium, Mexico, Russia, and Italy.
For this orientation, FSL-India organized different events for the exchange of ICL (Inter-Cultural Learning). The sessions conducted were ‘Indian’ welcome, introduction to FSL-India, local language class, practical information, Indian lifestyle, safety and project information, volunteer’s role and responsibilities.
The volunteers had a chance to participate in Henna application. It was observed that the participants were interested to know about Indian culture and practices. The volunteers actively participated in the orientation.
