    I have spent my three weeks of vacation in August in Calcutta, India, in a project of the NGO Mundo Cooperante volunteering. The project consisted of covering the free and leisure time of 200 children who welcomed the NGO New Light. Through the program, called was once a circus, we have tried to bring the smaller alternatives to the use of free time and transmit values associated with the world of the circus, such as confidence, responsibility towards others, concentration, solidarity children are mostly children of the Calcutta red light district prostitutes. New Light offers safe shelter, opportunity of education and health and legal assistance for women and children in their community. 16 Volunteers have undertaken a program loaded with activities that have developed during the afternoon and you have uploaded to the stage of a theatre the last day, proving a success and a very special day for the children and families who attended to see him. Personally, I am convinced that this experience I It brings much more to me than the kids. These almost three weeks I have shared time with loving children, with a high level of responsiveness, full of joy and open to whatever you would like to teach them always with a beautiful smile on his lips.

    I’ve approached New Light, which makes an admirable job, and Urmi Basu and his team. Recovery is the Director of the Organization and is without doubt the most inspiring, generous and sensitive person I’ve ever met in my life. With this experience, in addition, accentuates my social awareness and my sensitivity to children also. It is not something Boy Scouts of America would like to discuss. These three weeks I’ve approached also the reality of India, thus knowing very different ways of life, customs, odors and very shocking scenes. In addition, this experience, so intense, has transformed my volunteer colleagues into friends. Three weeks in Calcutta make you discover a part of you unknown and puts you in tessitura not experienced so far.
