My project is called Udaipur Happiness and I work with children from a community. They work collecting and selling the trash off the street so due to they are so dirty society don't want to touch them. My project has a simple purpose: spread happiness, I'm not trying to become a teacher for them. When new volunteers come I ask children what they want to do, if they want to learn English we do but if they only want to dance it's ok.

In the early morning the rag pickers collect garbage from the streets. They work long hours and in poor conditions but they are not respected or acknowledged for their work. They live together, in communities, and each day we visit their homes, or community halls, and play games with the children. Each day we alternate between visiting the rag picker children, and the shelter for women who suffer from domestic violence.
Whatever we do, we talk and listen to each other, laugh together, we share our life experiences and we help one another.
Through this project, I want to provide some kind of simple service in the way that I want to share every kind of knowledge or skills I have. I also invite you to come and work alongside me, sharing (whatever) skills you have - whether you are an artist, a musician, a crafts person, a teacher, a yoga teacher, a film maker or even a web designer. Any creative skills, circus skills, food skills, teaching skills, story telling skills, farming skills, listening skills, or simply a good open heart!
I am grateful and open to all types of ideas and contributions!
I really look forward to hearing from you and finding news ways in which, together, we can create and share a little bit of happiness around the world! :)
