Warwick in India is a small community project in Delhi, where students visit and teach a range of subjects, training local teachers too.
I think one of the biggest challenges was leaving my assumptions and preconceptions at the door when it came to trying out a new idea. A great reward from the project was witnessing first hand the improvements amongst the quality of teaching across the schools. My time in India reinforced in me how I want to work to improve children’s lives. From July, I will be working as a Children’s Social Worker.

Laksh has made me realise that the little things count. Although not a huge project, what it lacks in scale, it more than makes up for in terms of enthusiasm and commitment to its students. It’s influenced my future plans; I’m now going to study macroeconomic development in Economics and would like to pursue a career in international development. I cannot overstate how much the project has influenced my priorities and outlook on so many things in life, and I’m so grateful and thankful to everyone who’s made it possible.
