India Camp: 'It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organising team'

It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organising team - recollects a mentor from Mumbai

I was highly delighted when I was given the opportunity to mentor the youth of our community for 4 days, which eventually turned out to be the most productive days of my life!

It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organizing team, where the efforts put in by each mentor and admin was outstanding.

The fact that I learnt more from the participants and the mentors than what the kids would’ve learnt from me itself proves how amazing the course was in terms of ‘learning’. The mentees were some of the humblest kids I’ve ever met. They were all so kind, polite, and most importantly, respected the elders. These qualities signify that the parenting of the kids of our community is commendable.

 

I wish the very best for these youths!

Being on this course in Iran felt like a home away from home, I rarely missed my family as our exciting schedule kept us busy. From climbing Mount Khizr, to our early morning twilight sessions, the course always had us on our feet and moving.
