  • Exciting news -- we are done with recruitments, and we have a wonderful group of 20 teenagers, coming together across lines of class, religion, gender, caste, disability, and citizen/refugee boundaries. Looking forward to beginning our work together on the 1st of February, and wonderfully overwhelmed just thinking about all that we are going to learn in this process! Our blog will get a lot more interesting very soon! Big shoutout to our partners Bluebells. Manzil, ROPIO, AADI, Hope Project, and Don Bosco for facilitating this process. And to all the amazing volunteers who made these connections happen -- so grateful for each of you!
