Indian women welcome GPM volunteers

In this picture, Indian women representatives of the Kalwa neighborhood of Mumbai (adjacent to the Kalwa slums) welcomed the new volunteers in a Hindu ceremony for luck and success, which includes giving flowers, candies and a traditional red spot in the space between the eyes. Here the volunteers work alongside local women to prepare food for children learning in slum class rooms. The volunteers are continuously grateful for the women's' warmth, kindness and camaraderie.
