To celebrate the 10th anniversary of our association’s official founding, we conducted our long planned members trip to India in November 2018. Seven new and old members visited different places in this amazing country, with a focus on our project area in the state of Jharkhand. There, the German travel group took part in the Gossner Mission Day in Ranchi, participated in a church inauguration in Gowindpur, and visited the Martha Kindergarten in Ranchi, where currently two German volunteers of the ‘weltwaerts’ program are working. The most important part of the trip was the two day visit to Chaibasa, where most of our projects are located. Amongst other things there, we organized a meeting with the children and adolescents of the scholarship program, during which we ate and played together, but also found time to talk about individual problems with the students.
