Manav Sadhna has really become a family and home I will continue to come back to whenever I visit India. I came as a volunteer 3 years ago and sent 6 amazing weeks with the organization. I got involved with 3 different projects – Bal Sanskar, Savings Project, and Vinay Mandir. This time I worked with the Anganwadis and family planning

 I leave India this time with rejuvenated energy. The same energy I left with 3 years ago. That energy that is infectious here at MS. To be happy and content with everyday and to make every day matter. To do something each day that can bring a smile to someone’s face. The impact that MS has is truly global and unmeasurable. The lessons and energy I received here I will take back with me and hope to spread to the people I come in contact with.

I know when it comes to family, there are no thank yous, but thank you MS for reminding me everyday is a blessing and an opportunity to do something to change someone’s day.

See you soon (because I will definitely be back!)

Love and warm wishes,
