“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.
Hi, my name Paul Kammer from Germany. Nearly 4 months ago I came to my project after the summer camp. I am living in a village near Karkala in a house right next to the Ajekar Church School. This is also my working place where I attend Kannada class and give English and Music classes. At the beginning I was very warmly welcomed by my contact person and the other people I am working/living with.

Project- CSI Orphanage Girl’s Home– 9 months
I liked the project and the work I did but it was quiet difficult to find my place in the project, because day is planned through all along. I had to fight to get some time to play with children.
Since January, me Miriam and Paula, have the pleasure of giving lessons to the students of a private English school in Katterikuppam, a village close to Pondicherry.
My name is Anuschka Lütje and I am a LTV from Germany. Since August 2015 I am staying at the Mariella Children´s Home in a small village near Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
I am a short-time (3 months) volunteer and now it has been my 7th week in India. I enjoy my stay here very much. It took almost four week time to me to accustom myself to new surroundings. And now the time is going by very quickly and I am very sad to think about leaving India.
