A Few Words and Love: Aiswarya, Outbound Participant – Service Civique, France

A Few Words and Love: Aiswarya, Outbound Participant – Service Civique, France

When there is no language to communicate and no prior experiences with the environment or people, how will we create healthy relationships with people? I wanted to know the answer to my question. That is why I decided to move to France without learning French. Fortunately, in the organisation where I work, only a few people understand English. So it is a perfect opportunity for the experiment for myself.

Honey Bees at FSL-India’s Centre for Experiential Living, Kundapur

Beekeeping or apiculture is one of the world’s oldest occupations and has been in existence since antiquity. It is relatively inexpensive and hugely rewarding, as the benefits are many and varied. FSL-India decided to engage in beekeeping due to the increasing global problem caused by non-organic agriculture, i.e. the loss of pollinators, which are, just as the targeted pests, killed by the pesticides used.

My experiences in India with my host family and at GHS, Heskatturu – Lennert Quandel, Germany

My experiences in India with my host family and at GHS, Heskatturu – Lennert Quandel, Germany

More than one year ago, I applied for a social service in India. After a short time, I signed the contract and on 5th August 2017, I arrived in India. I left the airport and my first thought was, “It is cold here!“ Maybe, because we arrived at 3 a.m. in the morning.
