I have recently received this e-mail from Devender Singh the head master at Chitardai.
Respected madam Sallie
I’m very glad to admire Sallie. It is really great gracious service by your teachers for school going children in Chitardai. This work of charity done you. We are very very grateful to you for this work
with best regards
yours faithfully Devender Singh
Devender wrote this after the first 6 volunteers had been to work with him – they all did such a special job. Building trust with local people is perhaps one of the most important roles for the first volunteers. Thanks Nick, Lorraine, Jenny, Dianne, Penny and Bob.
