Alfa is very fortunate to have received a new intern throught the SMILE internship exchange program. Three of the community youth have traveled to New Delhi for a rural development internship and in exchange Sandra has graced our organization with her presence. Sandra is a valuable asset to our team and we are very excited to have her. She is focusing on English classes for women and children in Karawara and will soon start classes in the primary school in town. Her primary language is English, but she is fluent in Hindi which is perfect for the children who are learning basic English from her classses. Last week was very productive teaching classes everyday, working on a documentary project proposal and updating the most recent Youth Express magazine into English. Many people in town were excited to have Sandra work here for one month and Alfa was flooded with visitors all week. We love hosting people at our organization and feel that we are building a stronger reputation everyday! We should hear back from a few funding agencies soon and will update the world on our project status as soon as possible. Have a great week everyone!
