During our last three days in India, Gauri and I visited some schools. The first school we visited, was more like an after school set up for children whose families are working during the day. In fact this particular group that we visited were "The Camel People." The parents give rides on their camels to make money. The day we arrived, students were singing prayer songs in a circle. This particular set up was in an area where Swadhar was renting space under this big tent, which is used for weddings. The children lived just down the road from this tent. The families currently are squatting in the area, but nothing is really done about it.
My name is Todd Noyes. I am a Math teacher at Ithaca High School in New York, and I work for Cornell's Upward Bound Program over the summer. I was fortunate enough to travel to India during August 2012, and meet with some schools. This is a blog that takes you through my time in India, and the global relationships that I am hoping to form.
