Student Volunteer Program (SVP) is a very exciting program for student volunteers whenever they are free for 30 days to be a volunteer in a Mission situation. Here is a brief report of a participant recently finished it:
I served as a volunteer in Navajeevan ministry, Mumbai a ministry for the children of sex workers from 10 January to 9 February 2020
I really had a great time there with the lovely little Children, in spite of certain difficulties like-being scared of the snakes when I walked through the woods. I had to adjust with different foods. Our taste buds are not the same. It was so spicy and salty. I lost much weight. Climate was cold and we couldn’t get blankets like in our home. No ATM and bank around there. But all that didn’t matter, compared to the opportunity of my service to the Children and God.
I really miss the children as I love them. What matters most is that I left the place with a wealth of knowledge and experience that I will always treasure in my life. Serving here has been a great learning experience for me.
