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.
Although 4 months of my stay in India are still awaiting me, there is only a little time left for me to spend in the project, taking into account the long school holidays in April and May, as well as my personal travel plans. Isn’t it crazy how fast time passes by?
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.
Since 05.08.2017, I am in India. The past 5 months have been very exciting. My project is called CEAD. Corina and I are working on a farm.
Staying abroad makes time pass in a weird way. On the one hand, it feels like I arrived a month ago, just coming out of orientation. On the other hand, I can barely remember my first traveling experience in India – it must have been at least a year ago.
Once a year, FSL-India conducts a work camp for Sea Turtle Conservation (STC). So, for the last 2 weeks, from 15th-28th January, one work camp volunteer, Donghyun Han from South Korea, joined our project.
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.
My name is Theresa and I am a Weltwaerts volunteer from Germany. Totally, I will stay for 9 months here in India, so that’s a long time, but at the moment, I have the feeling that the time is running too fast and 9 months are too short.
For the last few weeks, the upcoming school trip had been the only topic at my school, Nittur Aided Higher Primary School.
Greetings from FSL-India’s Centre for Experiential Living, Kundapur!
My name is Marta, aged 28, Spanish and I came to India for a 7-month, EVS project. However, I am in tears leaving FSL-India after 2 ½ years!
From the 29th of September to the 1st of October, volunteers from all over India and I came together at Mysore to celebrate Dussehra, a Hindu festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil.
