Hi, this is Camille and Hannah. We participated in FSL-India’s Work Camp at Kundapur, for 2 weeks in October.
“How is India?”, a friend from Germany asks. How is India? India is…India! Great – full of culture, fantastic, lovely, delicious, cheap, colourful, and wonderful? Is it possible to answer this question?
Our names are Vivienne and Helena and we came to India for 4 weeks because we wanted to get an insight into Indian culture. As many people might say “4 weeks, that’s not enough time to get to know a country”. We have to agree, but still, we saw and learned so much in this month that we feel like we’ve spent much more time here.
On Tuesday, 31st October, 40 MSW students and 3 lecturers from Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara College (SDM) Ujire, visited FSL-India’s CEL (Centre for Experiential Living), located at Shettrakatte, Kundapura.
At the end of October, for the second time, FSL-India’s Training Department conducted a 2-day training on Experiential Education for Head Held High-Tumkur.
Many of you might be aware of the FSL-India team’s visit to Shekar Shetty Uncle’s farm every July to do rice plantation. This plantation happens always when the monsoon starts, so the paddy fields (rice fields) are flooded with water, making rainwater their only way of irrigation. The fields will be soaked during the months of July and August.
For the second time, FSL-India’s HBP (Home Based Project) team from CEL visited a local college to conduct a session on ‘Sustainable Development Goals: an answer to Human Rights violation’. This time we visited Milagres College, Kaliampur, Udupi.
In the month of October 2017, FSL-India LTV Bangalore region organized a Mid Term Evaluation (MTE) for our Long Term volunteers at Bangalore and Kanchipuram.
