In the month of December 2017, FSL-India hosted 4 Long-Term Volunteers from different countries, i.e. France, Switzerland, and Italy.
For this orientation, FSL-India organized different events for the exchange of ICL (Inter-Cultural Learning). The sessions conducted were a traditional ‘Indian’ welcome, introduction to FSL-India, local language class, practical information, Indian lifestyle, safety and project information, the volunteer’s role and responsibilities. The volunteers had a chance to participate in a henna application. It was observed that the participants were interested to know about Indian culture and practices. The volunteers actively participated in the orientation.
