Featured Events

1 Dec 2019 · Manoranjan Sadan, Aligarh Railway Colony

Winter Care

Indonesian students of Aligarh Muslim University and the Foreign Students Association of AMU joined forces to engage with the children and exchange cultures. Despite the language barrier, there was a beautiful exchange of culture where both children and students taught each other, shared their stories, and created something new together. The children made handmade gifts for the foreign students with their names written in Hindi, and the Indonesian students brought winter clothing for them. This India-Indonesia cultural exchange provided the children with an opportunity to learn about the differences between different nationalities in Asia. The Indonesian students stated that the street-connected children taught them lessons that couldn't be learned in a classroom.
