Project – Women Empowerment, August
I am so thankful for this opportunity! As
stressful and tiring as the volunteering
was, every bit of hardship was made up by
the joy I’ve felt from knowing that I have
made a difference however small it may seem.
Seeing the girls faces light up at learning
something new was so rewarding. I have and
will continue to recommend the program to
friends. The accommodation was good. I loved
the food! It was healthy, delicious and
authentic! No Complaints! I absolutely
recommend the program. We were so lucky to
work with the grassroots organization. We
know that the money and effort we put in
goes directly to those who need it.
Project – Women Empowerment, April 2012
I really enjoyed my five weeks here. It was even better than expected. The
women empowerment programme was great and the volunteer house in a really
good location. Jaipur particularly was a great base to explore Rajasthan and
its surrounding cities and attraction. Also I think Sankalp is good value
compare to other volunteer programmes and definitely has more of charity,
rather than a business fed to it. The Sankalp team seems to genuinely care
about the work programs and the people and children they are benefiting. Food was
delicious. All the staff was great. Amita and Pranay are great at holding
everything together. I will definitely recommend Sankalp to my friend and
family. And also I may come back next year!!
Project - Women Empowerment, March 2012
While my time on the program was very short (just 2 weeks). I really
enjoyed this opportunity to work with women and girls on women
empowerment initiatives. I enjoyed the experience to learn more about
the lives, challenges and realities of women in this region, and to help
them develop skills and confidence to set goals and achieve them. It was
a wonderful experience to live like locals do, and learn about Indian
culture. I found Jaipur an interesting location. Rich history and
beautiful sites, Speople friendly. Accommodation and food was very good.
Comfortable rooms, beds & house. The food was very good – authentic
style delicious food. I would recommend Sankalp to others.
Thank you for making this a wonderful experience!
Project – Women Empowerment, February 2012
I was happy to have the opportunity to work on the women Empowerment
program. It was nice to be allowed to create bonding experiences. For
me, I saw this as a support group for younger women (girls aged 10- 15)
and women in intensely busy period of their lives – with young children
– some with demanding Parents. Or in- laws and with jobs!!! I was very
happy to draw out the women and let them improve their English in fun
ways. I would like to say Thank you to Sankalp for this opportunity.
The food and the accommodation were fine. Amita is very caring. Amita
and Pranay clearly want these projects to be successful and do their
best to accomplish that. I would definitely recommend Sankalp to others.
