Sangam Volunteers and Interns
Meet our current Volunteers and Interns
Maxine (Scotland) - Sangam Volunteer
My name is Maxine, I am from Aberdeen, Scotland and I am a volunteer at Sangam for three months during the monsoon season.
Having just completed five years studying Law at university, I can't wait to be a part of the volunteer programme and to explore colourful India and its culture with new friends from all around the world.
I look forward to meeting all of participants this season!
Victoria (Argentina) - Sangam Volunteer
My name is Victoria and I am from
Argentina. I have been a guide since I was six years old and thanks to that I found my
second family and home. I studied yoga and India is the country that was always
calling me to be part of their culture. Sangam has given me the
opportunity I was looking for to enhance my leadership skills, improve my
English, live in the Indian culture with their meals, their smells, and their
everyday life. Every day in the world centre is a challenge to get the best
version of myself, create bonds with the whole Sangam family, have fun, love
life, and be the change!
Verity (UK) - Sangam Volunteer
I am Verity
from Edinburgh, United Kingdom. I have been in Girl Guiding since I
started Rainbows at the age of five. I have been a leader for the past eight years. In my spare time I like to go hill walking, running, rock climbing and spend time with my family and friends.
I have come to Sangam to experience Indian culture, learn about Indian traditions and to improve my leadership skills.
I am looking forward to helping with the programme and taking participants out and about in Pune. I am also excited to throw myself into every opportunity Sangam offers me and getting to experience things I wouldn’t normally get the chance to do.
Heninstoa (Madagascar) - Sangam Volunteer
My name is TOKINIRINA Henintsoa Cynthia, I‘m 22 years old. I belong to Fanilon’ i Madagascar Girl Guide association. I joined Guiding when I was eight years old. Being a Girl Guide has changed my life completely and has shaped my personality. It has helped me to discover myself and develop my skills.
I was one of the YESS (Youth Exchange South to South) participants in 2017 and my host country was Kenya. Through that experience, I developed my leadership skills and I learnt a lot about Guiding. I really like making new friends and working in a culturally diverse setting.
Currently, I am a long term monsoon volunteer at Sangam World Centre. I am looking forward to learning about Indian culture, the community programme and leading international event. So I will take this great opportunity to discover my potential, to develop my leadership skills and to make a difference as well.
I am so grateful to be part of Sangam family and I will enjoy my stay here, I learn new things in every single day. It’s time to grow.
