The volunteers from Aim Abroad went to the charitable hospital again today. After they finish at the charitable hospital, they will go back to the host family homes for lunch. This evening, two of the volunteers will prepare for a trip to Haridwar and Rishikesh in Uttarakhand! In Haridwar, alongside the Ganges river, the volunteers will observe Hindu traditions. Rishikesh, famed for its focus on yoga and spirituality, will offer the volunteers a new adventure for their interest in Indian culture!
Last night, as I mentioned in the previous blog entry, four volunteers went to the Indian Habitat Center in central Delhi to attend a function for the school for underprivileged children (I have attached a picture of Raquel, from Spain, who volunteered at this school last week). The function was very nice, and had several speakers and special guests who discussed the school for the children and a film that was created about the school (the post from April 26th has pictures of when the film was being made!). One of the volunteers, from the US, who went to the function was in the film too, and he mentioned how special it felt to be part of such an inspirational and altruistic cause. The film was screened at the function as well, and then the volunteers went back to their host family home. The volunteers described that they were very happy and content with the evening, as it was a special and memorable ceremony.
