As part of FSL-India’s Outbound program, I am here in Pau, France for a period of 6 months. I came here in the beginning of May 2018, and it has been a breathtaking experience ever since.
My name is Prashanth. I am an Outbound participant of FSL-India and my project is at Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (German Red Cross). I never thought that dreams come true. 2017-18 is a wonderful year in my life. Why? Because FSL-India gave me everything what I expected in my life. So now, I am going to share my German experience and beautiful life that I am living here.
My name is Gitanjali Srinivas and I came to Germany as a participant of FSL-India’s Outbound program. I am working with the German Red Cross and having the time of my life. I have done quite a bit of traveling since I came to Germany in November, last year.
I arrived in Paris on the 30th of March and I reached my project on the 1st of April. From Paris to the project, it’s quite far. During the travel to my project, it was really a wonderful experience. I experienced a bit of difficulty due to the language, but I managed to cope. Finally, I reached my place – it was Friday, also it was a weekend with Saturday and Sunday off.
This is Sahana J from Bangalore, India and I have been selected by FSL-India to volunteer at Pistes Solidaires, France for a project with 6 months’ duration.
My name is Gitanjali Srinivas and I am a volunteer with the German Red Cross through FSL-India’s Outbound program.
It has always been a pleasure for me to work with FSL-India. 1 ½ years ago, the first meeting with the FSL-India team happened. I was selected by them as an outbound participant to participate in the Weltwaerts program, which was happening in Germany. From that time on, whenever I get an opportunity to work with them, I hold it tightly.
Dreaming about living in a new and different country is always a dream for many. When I got such an opportunity from FSL-India it was a dream come true. The programs they offer are really amazing and worthwhile.
The world is magical and if you look properly, there is magic happening everywhere around you. The Land of the West has always seemed mystical and untouchable to me. It is this mystical element that drew me towards it.
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.
Solidarité Jeunesse France organized a work camp at La Fai, Veynes in the Alps Region in South France from 25th September-15th October 2017. The theme of the work camp was ‘Save Buëch river through environmental sustainability’.
