The Volunteer Training is over and we celebrated with a traditional Maharashtrian dinner so I decided to dress up in Kamini's Grandmother's antique 9 yard sare! We then did a crazy photo shoot in the Jubilee Garden - it was heaps of fun!
Now the training is over the volunteers are at work and we are into the 2nd day of the three day community bizarre where we invite members of the community in to come and purchase all the things that guests have left here over the last season. It's awesome to have the community in and also to free up some space before the start of the event season.
The first event will start on the 27th of June and we have 23 participants coming from USA and Denmark plus some USA Girl Scouts who live in Japan. In the event we're going to be doing some visits to different schools as well as a village visit. It will be fun!
Here's a pic of Robyn from the USA our new Marketing and Communications intern, Gwen from Malaysia (Assistant Programme Manager) and the Volunteers! They are from USA, Mexico, UK and Nigeria.
Here's me and Gwen on the swing with the new HUGE tiffin that we use for our Sangam promotion session at the end of our events. We just created the session over the summer and delivered it for the first time to the volunteers. We need a bit more work!!!
And here's Mina accidently taking a photos of herself when she was trying to use Amina's camera!!!
