The Bodhgaya Hotel School
Namaste! The summer 2018 saw the start of our six-month volunteering period for one of IFPD’s projects in north-east India: The Bodhgaya Hotel School. Together, we supported the local team in reviewing and improving the school’s academic program, and then in implementing it with the second batch of students. We also contributed to various Human Resources, Marketing and Management aspects. We would like to share here how grateful we are for this opportunity we were given to immerse ourselves into the Indian culture and daily life. Needless to state that our experience would not have been half as fulfilling without the warm welcome and the constant support of the local team from Agragami India. We laughed, we cried, we struggled, we fought, we met incredible people and made friends for life. Now back home in peaceful Switzerland, we feel grown up; our stay has brought us closer to each other and indeed, closer to our own selves. This six-month experience at The Bodhgaya Hotel School was certainly not easy, but it was for sure one of the most transformative and enriching experience of our lives!
