Review for Indicorps, Ahmedabad, --, India

Rating: 5 stars  

I completed the Indicorps Fellowship by volunteering with a small, grassroots NGO in a remote, mountain-top, tribal village in Tamil Nadu. I assisted the NGO with implementing their first nutrition interventions in the community including introducing a new, locally sustainable technology wherein 2 clay pots, some sand, and water could be used to create a rural refrigerator. As much as I worked to create a sustainable impact on the lives of the villagers, the greatest impact was on me and how I learned to be a better leader and person. This is why I continue to be involved with mentoring current fellows.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The ongoing life lessons that can be applied no matter what I do next.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

passionate, inspired, inspiring, humble, and talented.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the nature of service in India and the world. Perhaps inspire a generation to be the change they want to see in the world.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
