This Saturday sees the arrival of Alpha 4 to Raleigh India and the excitement is mounting! Alpha 4 is one of our Bespoke Programmes and will consist of 12 students from Henry Compton Boys School.
Project Manager Sean aka Elvis and PRO Suze went to visit the community to complete the final planning for the project ahead.
The group will work alongside a rural community in the village of Telugu Massahali to build sanitation units for 16 individual families. Some preparation work has been completed in the village and the community is very excited about working alongside the group, particularly after the success of a previous project carried out by Welling School on our last expedition in Kandegala, 3km away.
As the participants will be in the village during Diwali - or locally known as Dipali they will stay in the local school.
The children of the village are very friendly - a little shy at first but I'm sure they will want to play lots of games. There will also be an opportunity for the group to participate in some of the festivities in the evening times and to really get to know the community members.
