Henry Compton School are now Alpha Four in Raleigh India. Eleven students, three staff members and two Project Managers now make up the team.
After an early morning airport pickup the group arrived at Raleigh India's Field Base in Mysore, welcomed by an excited and enthusiastic Field Base team ready to kick the orientation into action.
Comms training, safety, first aid and health and hygiene were topped off with a visit from Snake Shayam who gave the group environmental and wildlife safety training.
Eager and raring to go the boys hardly slept a wink and were up early Sunday morning to continue with training and pack kit ready to deploy to their project site.
William DeSousa of MYRADA - our Project Partner came to Field Base to meet the team and to tell them how enthused the village was about the impending project.
Later that afternoon they were packed up onto the bus and travelled onto Telugu Massahalli. They have begun the work alongside the families in the village and are experiencing Diwali delights.
