Our Participants Speak / Testimonials

Emma - UK

"When people comment to me on how wonderful it is for me to volunteer in Chandigarh , I'm quick to point out that I always receive much more than I give. Children provide such tremendous lessons in courage, inspiration, perseverance, and positive attitudes. In my 2 years as a volunteer, when programme is over I always come home grateful for the opportunity to be around these wonderful kids"
