It’s been an amazing experience being around the kids and interacting with them. The kindergarten project takes on the task of educating children from the age of 4 to 13 years old. They all are children from the slums, which means they don’t have a lot of material things such as clothes, food and toys. At the project, we bring lunch For us and the kids. So we eat with them after 2 hours of class time. In addition to all of this, the green lion coordinators pick them up in the morning and take them back in the afternoon. After driving to their homes and seeing how they live, it really did a huge impact on me. This whole journey has given me a lot of knowledge about the Indian culture, and how some families live. It’s important for them to be able to speak English because of the huge diversity of Indian languages throughout the country. The project really showed me the importance of knowledge and education for these kids. I would love to come back to be able to see the growth and progress of the kids. And I recommend this to anyone that wants to make an impact on these children’s lives.
