Climate Activists with Homeless Support in Delhi and Green Action project in Behror, India!

 

 

Our journey started on March 29st, at 7:30, we left CICD for our next chapter of programme in India. After a long day travelling in public transports, finally we arrived at Heathrow Airport in London at for the flight to Delhi at 21:00. Next day, we arrived in Delhi at 11:00. The impact was very strong because we left UK with 7 or 8º C but here was around 39º C! Our bodies started to react immediately, breathing became more difficult and our senses became more sensitive to feel this new world! Our first goal was to reach Humana People to People India. Though we were tired, all of us were enthusiastic to know the place and the people who we would come to work with in the next days. Our first important meeting was on March 31st with Pashu Mahato who is a project manager. He made a presetation about HPPI and all the projects which this organization is envolved. Then he aproached two projects in specifically, the Homeless Project in Delhi and the Green Action Project in Behror, Neemrana as a solutions for our future places to work.

    We could get a little piece of African reality as we went to our project. We could taste the bitterness of poverty and we were able to do our part making the world a better place to live.

    In CICD I had grown and changed a lot. I had to adapt, be tolerant, respect others and most importantly, be humble.
