I would never have sought out the missionary if I hadn't stumbled upon the beautifully written review posted on trip advisor during Easter. That kind man wrote paragraphs which touched me to the core and inspired me to do a small something for my short stop in Agra whilst visiting Delhi for work. I tried researching online what to take... More

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 so i went there for my mental pleasure... trust me as a good human you should visit there once .

We visited the Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Theresa. We were showed around the facility by a sister who worked with Mother Theresa. The facility was spotlessly clean, and decorated with bright colors to stimulate the children. A little girl with a brace on her leg took a liking to us and stayed close the entire time. There are...

I had a very different experience this Easter. I have been contributing financially to ministries in India over the past few years and this year, I had the opportunity to travel to India for the first time to interact directly with one of the chapters of the charities founded by Mother Teresa in Agra - Missionaries of Charity (or M.C.)....

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.

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
