Chloe McGuire has arrived in rural India, to start her year long volunteer work to teach English to poor children to hopefully give them better life chances in their futures. Part of her latest post says: 'We eat rice and sambah for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Sambah is basically extremely watery curry with occasional veg added. We’re living on rice. Not just us, the whole campus. The food is made in bulk for 500+ people so I guess I understand the lack in variety. One of the girls insist we go to her hostel room at 7pm Indian time today, and she will teach us how to wear a sari. We’re going into the local town at 5 to get some traditional Indian dress so I’m excited for that. I’ll keep you updated on how tonight goes and my first few lessons very soon.'
Our children helped raise over £600 to help her achieve this. Chloe is a former pupil and we were so proud to be supporting her in this worthwhile, and life changing, work. Click on her photo to keep up to date with her blog since she arrived Sept 17!
