This is the best experience ever for me in India! Travel may not give you a real chance to close to the local life, but being a volunteer can definitely not only make you closer to their life, also change your life! During the days being with these kids, sometimes I'm not sure if I'm the one who taught them something, because I learned to satisfy everything easily from them, and now I'm still keeping this faith in my mind! Thanks for PLAN foundation to give this chances to be with these children in Shimla and really get lots of unique memories from this time.
