There was a lot of inspiration and different ideas, from which we chose the topic of the 3 R’s -Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. The communities are not well aware of the 3 R’s method so, we chose this. The team painted murals on the school wall to create awareness among the children and the local community.

It is so important to bring about a good change in the environment and this is a small step to protect the earth from becoming clogged with garbage!

Awareness was created in the community and subsequently, they were inspired and motivated by the 3R’s method. The school community and children agreed that henceforth, they would follow the 3R’s method in their daily life. They would also inform others about this method and encourage them to follow the same.

Volunteering experience in India – Joelle Leureux, AFS/BMZ-Germany

My name is Joelle and since 10 ½  months, I’m living and doing my voluntary work in India (Chennai), so my time here is almost over. I’m working in a shelter for street animals. This is my personal dream project, because I really love to be and to work with animals and furthermore, I already have some experiences in it.

Christmas Eve in India – Annelie Tschemmer, Germany (Sparsha Trust, Regular Teaching Project)

It’s cold outside, the snow has been falling for weeks and I can hear my father walking to our garden to get wood in order to set up the fireplace in our living room. I’m wrapped in my warmest blanket, watching the snow fall outside my window.
