Review for Purkal Youth Development Society, Uttar Pradesh , , India

Rating: 5 stars  

My name is Merce and since I´m 18 y.o. (now I´m 35) I´ve been working as volunteer in several NGO´s, apart of developing projects, etc... In all this years of experience, I´ve never seen a NGO like PYDS. It´s amazing how a retired couple (Swamy and Chinni) has created such a great environment for children without resources. These children have the same school system as the rest and the values and acknowledgement that they are getting is even better than most of the schools that I´ve visited in Dehradun, where I´m also teacher. But Swamy and Chinni don´t stop here!!. The kids have proper food from morning till evening when they leave the school, the transport for going to school and coming back home, medical service , etc... and something that you can feel from the moment that you arrive there, it´s the strong feeling of love and caring for these children. It´s an incredible sensation seeing them going to University, achieving their aims and what it´s more important for me, seeing them becoming great human beings. All these kids have great values and they are incredibly conscious about all the world around them.... It´s a great feeling experience belonging to this huge family where every single member is loved and cared.
