Keep tuned for the next update very soon!

This morning started with an amazing bindhi ceremony, except this was with a twist!  Today was the day of group allocations, when UK and Indian volunteers would find out who their team leaders would be for the next 10 weeks, which villages they would be going to and the projects they would be undertaking.
