The Atheist Centre, India and Humanist Freethinker Association Havelland, Germany
The Atheist Centre based in Vijayawada, India, recently hosted around a dozen German youth sponsored by the Humanist Freethinker Association Havelland, Germany.
The exchange program included workshops, community service activities, team building exercises and meetings with community leaders. Importantly the activities were catered to suit the skills of the volunteers; Antonia and Claudia, students of Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering were given the opportunity to interact with students of a local engineering college.
The volunteers brought new skills, energy, creativity, enthusiasm and fresh perspectives to the local community in Vijayawada. Conversely, this was the first opportunity for most of the volunteers to visit India, and experience its mind-blowing diversity of culture, religion and delicious food.
