India Camp: 'It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organising team'

It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organising team - recollects a mentor from Mumbai

I was highly delighted when I was given the opportunity to mentor the youth of our community for 4 days, which eventually turned out to be the most productive days of my life!

It was indeed an honour to be a part of such an incredible organizing team, where the efforts put in by each mentor and admin was outstanding.

The fact that I learnt more from the participants and the mentors than what the kids would’ve learnt from me itself proves how amazing the course was in terms of ‘learning’. The mentees were some of the humblest kids I’ve ever met. They were all so kind, polite, and most importantly, respected the elders. These qualities signify that the parenting of the kids of our community is commendable.

 

I wish the very best for these youths!

Day Seven:

Its 11am here now and the temperature is at 40°. I have had a 5 hour sleep which should be good enough to get me going for what is my D Day today.

I come out of the tent and see people all dressed in white, some performing their wudhoo whilst some praying despite the intense heat. The Adhaan is then heard and everyone rushes to their tents to perform their prayers. Thereafter the whole place goes quiet.
