It is my first experience in India, in a NGO.What I can say is that the family which is giving all its life for children, women, villages who need help to live, do a great job, they are all very friendly.My project was to paint on the outside wall some frescoes representing Bless'actions, as a direct publicity, and to give to the children 2 hours enjoying to color mandalas, a manner to put them in attention, concentration.I spent 1 month and a half in this big family which became mine and I know that I'll miss them.I hope I'll come back in October staying 6 months! It means: I recommande!
My days at Bless are unforgettable. The Bless family is very humble and welcoming and the kids are the best, they are very energetic. One can get a glimpse of what the most rural areas of India are going through and Bless is doing great indeed an amazing job in empowering them. I already miss those kids! I think I will be going back there very soon. And about visiting nearby places Mr. Anthony who is the founder of bless will help you in whatever way he can. Thanks Anthony for the trip to Auroville.
Thanks a lot accepting me as volunteer
