In the month of December 2017, FSL-India Kundapur hosted 4 Long-Term Volunteers from France and Finland at our CEL (Centre for Experiential Living), Kundapur.
The volunteers underwent different practical, theoretical and outdoor sessions for their successful journey in India. The volunteers actively participated in each session.
The FSL-India facilitators took extra care in organizing this orientation in which some sessions included conflict management, roles, and responsibilities, Hindu philosophy, culture and Indian lifestyle, project introduction and preparation with the coordinator.
Every evening we organized different events for the exchange of ICL (intercultural learning). FSL-India also organized some cultural activities in the free time like a tour to Kundapur.
All the staff of FSL-India, consider this orientation to be a success. The volunteers’ feedback that we received was very positive. Everything worked well and we are really satisfied with our work and the results.
