Hello Guys ,,, Namaste :) .. I want to share my experience in with Aii India .. In jan 2014 I took a desicion to volunteer in India. I searched many companies charging like hell. In thousands of Euros for 2 weeks volunteering. I was shocked to see the reality how one can charge such a big amount for serving others. Then one day I saw a post of Elephant Care in India by Aii. I made contact with them and i was wondering the amount of two weeks. It was very less in comparison with other local and International companies.
Before coming on the project I was frighten to imagine to work with the huge Elephants. You can`t believe my parents and friends were in shock from my decision. But I was firmed on my decision. The day came I came to India and as expected everything was very good. Specially the pickup from airport in a traditional style haha. I Loved that.
On Monday I went with Peeyush on the project and i did my project for 2 weeks. I loved the project and Elephants. One Elephant`s name is Sonia, I loved her so much, she was really adorable.
Peeyush was there with me all the time, and without help i couldn`t even think to come & work with Elephants. I enjoyed my stay, food & my host family. I hope to come soon after finishing my post graduation :)
