Goodbye 1st group of volunteers!

Three summer volunteers went back home last week, but their impact is still being felt. Although college students Sara Birnbaum and Shayna Lebovic, and recent graduate Leora Chefitz returned to North America after a packed summer of activity and involvement in the slums, these volunteers lay the foundations for strong relationships between GPM volunteers and the Mumbai children. Thanks to their hard work, current volunteers are using tools created over the summer to teach English, and are further developing innovations and creative approaches to advancing literacy among the children. GPM thanks them for their dedication and commitment and wishes them great success in all their endeavors. Sara, Shayna and Leora, you will always be part of the GPM community!
