Volunteer's Story

Terra Wright, USA
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.

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!!

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!

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.
