RYS Clears Grounds and Restores Light at a School in India

Participants: 13 Local Project

Bangalore, India

Background: The RYS was looking to expand its programs into Central America and found that Honduras provided an excellent opportunity. RYS worked with strong cooperation from the National Ministry for Social Projects which introduced us to the Mendoza school project in the outskirts of the capital. The Ministry provided nearly all the materials and also technical staff for the were project. This was a very good arrangement because it kept the funding cost down and the ministry was very pleased with the project and organized the forRYS in its 1998 project.

This project developed as a result of the two Bangalore seminars held in preparation for RYSGF. Several of the RYSGF participants from Bangalore returned wanting to organize a local event and set up an RYS Club.

The RYS Alumni decided to start the year off with a service activity with the School for Spatics. Among the participants was the RYS first blind participant.

Duration: January 8 - 9, 1994

Work: The small and enthusiastic group of RYS volunteers cleared grounds and worked on light restoration at a school for Spastic Children.

Organization and staff: Local leadership: Dr. Indira Swaminathan, Mr. Hasagawa and P. Krishnaraja
