Journey to India

17 December 2012

Note: Our Toronto Volunteer Officer, Xilo, recently left for India as part of Paper Kite’s team this year.

As soon as I joined Paper Kite a year ago I knew I wanted to be a part of the team going to India this year.  I’m at the airport waiting to board my plane and it still doesn’t seem real.  I’m sure the realization that I’m not in Canada anymore will hit me like a ton of bricks when I step off the plane in New Delhi.

From New Delhi I will get on another plane and travel to Bodhgaya, where the two orphanages that Paper Kite supports are located.  I’m looking forward to meeting the children who are at the centre of what we do at Paper Kite.  My goal for this trip is to document the world that these children are growing up in, get to know what they dream of growing up to be, and see what a day in their life looks like.

Now it’s boarding time and it looks like my journey is about to begin.
