Working this summer in India with Uplift Humanity was one of the best decisions of my life. I came in not knowing anything about the summer program except for some online research I had done before, however, Uplift Humanity exceeded my expectations. Working with the children was amazing and I have learned many valuable lessons from doing so, making unforgettable connections with each child. The program also gives you the opportunity to speak Hindi, although it was not required for the Mumbai location. My Mumbai team was awesome and we all got along really well with each other. The apartment complex that we stayed at was comfortable and very conveniently located. The cook was excellent and made some of the best food Iv'e ever eaten. As for safety, our counselors took precautions, making sure we were safe throughout the whole trip. The program is a great way to explore India as well since we were given the opportunity to see some famous landmarks in Mumbai and eat at local, approved restaurants. Overall, I would recommend this program if you are interested in immersing yourself in the Indian culture while helping the orphans/ juveniles of India understand their true potential.
