Three Surval students have been charitable in India

Posted on: 23rd May 2014 | Category: Commitment to communities

Last month, on April 6, we went to Volunteer in India. It was such an amazing experience. We learnt about Indian culture their religion and their way of  life.

The project we were volunteering in consisted in teaching slum children in the community of Faridabad in Delhi, India. We taught for 3 hours during the mornings and 3 more in the afternoons. The kids were so welcoming and always eager to learn. Since for many of them this was the only education they received we tried to teach them a little bit about everything. With the older ones we did basic geography or science such as continents or the water cycle and with the younger ones we tried to concentrate more on their English since it was very limited.

We stayed with a host family.The woman who took us in was in charge of the whole program; this meant when there are no volunteers she has to teach one class of 40 children with an age range from 3 to 12 years old.

The whole trip was an amazing experience where we met some pretty unique people and learnt to appreciate the little things that we normally take for granted. We were supposed to go teach Indian children but ended up learning much more than t we taught them and more than we ever imagined!

I would really recommend everyone to volunteer at least once in their life.

This experience will change your perspective of life and will make you be more grateful and take advantage of all the opportunities that life gives you!
