Anandwan


The reason I haven't been posting as much from here is because we've actually been doing different projects and volunteering at the leprosy colony we visit with Project RISHI, called Anandwan. They're a completely self-sustained community, at the forefront of environmental sustainability (for such a rural and underfunded location), and probably have some of the nicest people you will ever meet living here.


Pictures when I get a chance to transfer them ALL, but we just completed a series of health education camps (focused on nutrition, first aid, and personal hygiene) for all the kids at the deaf and blind schools. The kids were brilliant! And sooo cute! Now, our second project is to get some high-quality footage and photos of the performance group of the able and disabled here, Swaranandwan. Hopefully, we'll be able to produce some decent marketing materials and a YouTube channel and get their name and their message of acceptance out to a larger audience.
