Back in 1999, I traveled to India for my brother's wedding. While there, Y2K frenzy led to my losing my flight home and any thereafter for a month. I decided to spend my spare time doing volunteer work. I went daily to the orphanage to play with the children, work on their "abc's" and make "topis" (hats). They were delighted... More

I actually visited this place in April 2007, but feel compelled to review it now. On arrival in Agra I walked around a lot before going up to the gate of the Taj. Something told me I shouldn't go in, but that I should find a charitable institution to visit instead. A very helpful auto-rickshaw driver called Gudhu (sp ?)... More

I visited here during my time in Kolkata. Mother Teresa is buried on the ground floor of the Mother House. Her tomb is a place of pilgrimage and quiet meditation. The site of the tomb is a place of silence and peace despite the noise of passing traffic outside. The nuns pray at the tomb throughout the day, and visitors... More

With much regret I thought I will put pen to paper. I did only two days of volunteer work in October 2013 at Shantii Dan in Kolkata with the children. After the two days I felt very touched and regretted that I could not have spent more days there. I can’t shake out how institutional the place feels. A peaceful... More

I added this place after reading trip advisor commentary and I kind of knew what to expect. It is basically an orphanage and a home for mentally handicapped people and the affiliation is to the organisation set up by Mother Theresa. Met sister Gloria, a nun from the state of Kerala who very kindly received us. Sister Gloria asked all... More

We saw this on tripadvisor and decided that we would donate some clothes and have a quick visit. We arrived late on Christmas Day (pure coincidence) and was lucky to be invited in by the Mother Superior even though the place was closed for the day. You'll have a lump in your throat and will want to take the kids... More

We went and met the sister , who showed us around the school. The ward for physically challenged children is kept well. Nurses serve the kids with good care and affection. It was quite an emotional experience for us as a family
