Development Education opportunity with ROSE Kanda, India

My name is Alice Metcalf and I have visited R.O.S.E for one week as part of a 3-month tour around Asia with my boyfriend, Harry. Last year I graduated with an MA in Global Urban Justice and I have been doing research for a charity in London since then. I found R.O.S.E on the internet and was keen to put some of my skills into practice on the field whilst learning about Hindi culture in rural India.

On arrival, we were both blown away by the scenery and the fresh air! Kanda is an absolutely stunning place – I could never get bored of these views.

My boyfriend is a digital marketing executive so our primary function here has been developing marketing tools and networking with various universities and volunteering coordination organizations. I think that we have made good progress in just one week, but it’s important that someone follows up the leads that we have started. We have also spent some time identifying potential donors who are interested in funding agricultural programs in rural India. Again, it is important that our work is followed up on to ensure that the time we have spent on this has been worthwhile for R.O.S.E. I genuinely believe that Jeevan’s dream of expanding his goat breeding program will be realized – and he deserves every success!

The accommodation is fantastic – we have both been very happy in our room. My only suggestion on how to improve guests’ stay here is to perhaps give them more of an opportunity to get involved in day-to-day life here with the family. We have asked the family if they would like help with any job a number of times, but our offer has rarely been taken up, leaving us feeling pretty guilty when so much hard work is going on around us. That said, today we were taken down to the fields and shown how the land is prepared for a new season of rice growing which was fascinating and excellent fun.

Jeevan has been a fantastic host, really made us feel part of his family and he seems so grateful for the little help that we have given him. We have set up some more crowdfunding pages and will certainly continue to try and fundraise for this fantastic project when we are back in the UK.

Thanks so much for having us, we have both learned

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
