Future Hope, India
Over the summer, 10 Paulinas spent two weeks volunteering at Future Hope school, a charity which works with street children in Kolkata, India. We worked with the children for a few hours a day, teaching them various poems and dramatic techniques, and finished the trip by inviting their parents and teachers to watch them perform.
It was truly rewarding to watch the children gain confidence and I can safely say that by the second day we had all already fallen in love with the children. Though the work was hard and the culture difference was startling, these were two weeks that were made unforgettable.
