Skills gained

Mostly, it would be really a great opportunity for the volunteers to explore about village and Tamil tradition and the ritual of our ancient culture like language, way of living and being in our Tamil natives, games, lifestyles, festival experiences, working with children.We don’t really want to force our expectation, instead if they cherish the spirit and richness of our Tamil tradition, that would be really appreciated.
