Language and Culture Programs!

Today three volunteers with Aim Abroad, two from Spain and one from the US, went to Delhi to visit the Lotus Temple, Qutb Minar, Dilli Haat, Humayun's Tomb, India Gate, and Chhattarpur Temple before returning home to the host family in Delhi NCR. Some of the other volunteers will be going to the street children project, to sing, dance, and play with the children, and also to teach the children. The other volunteers will be facilitating a school for disabled children in the neighborhood as well. Last night, two of our volunteers from England arrived from a two-day trip to Jaipur, where they had a wonderful time. They described that they preferred Jaipur much more to Agra, as they felt as if they were in a metropolitan yet Indian city. Yesterday, the volunteers participated in the language and culture program, where the Hindi classes were taught and the volunteers also went to a large and beautiful temple a few blocks away from their host family home. I have attached two pictures taken two weeks ago from when other volunteers recently went to Delhi on the same trip as those three who are on the way to Delhi right now. The final picture was taken at the temple where the volunteers visited yesterday.
