Volunteering with Prime Trust was a lifetime experience!
The staff is extremely nice and helpful. They will show you around and will always be happy to answer your questions. The volunteering stay is a nice stay and close to the shops and projects. Pondicherry is overall a nice city to stay in, it has everything you need. Also the project has made some nice day trips to give you the opportunity to see some more of the environment.
Volunteering here is a good opportunity to do something for the people and experience their culture.
I was a music and English teacher at the Janani Home for Girls, the Evening Tution and the Sabari Primary School. I doesn't matter where you come from, everybody likes music, it connects people with each other. This was something I experienced during the project.
As a formal Indian citizen, I am blessed to had this opportunity to work this close with the Indian people and their culture. Prime Trust thank you for this amazing experience!
Feel free to ask any questions.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't rush. The Indian culture is sometimes quite hectic. Take it slow and accept some things will go different than you are used to. Don't forget to enjoy your time!
