During my time in Delhi I have felt a huge mix of emotions. It is like nowhere I have been before. There is a massive juxtaposition between those who have money and those who donâ€™t. My first few days in Delhi where so overwhelming, I just couldnâ€™t get used the conditions in what people seemed to live in. People begging for money and children in scruffy clothes crying as their mothers thrust them in your face in a desperate plea. It was terrible and I felt so guilty that I couldn’t help. Everything seemed so desperate, so on the verge on collapse, yet it survived.
Luckily, having the opportunity to volunteer for Project Why taught me a great deal and gave me hope. Project Why is a non-profit charitable organisation that has been running for over 10 years now. It aims to help and work with children and families from the slums, aiming to give them a brighter future with more opportunities through training and education.
During my time at the project I got to send time with each of the different centres. Although dedicated to different people each centre had something in the common. The people working there were so kind and so passionate that you really believed that the organisation was working. They were changing the lives of those who needed help.
