Description

Jaipur, the fascinating capital of the desert state of Rajasthan, is one of the best planned cities of its time. The graceful architecture of the city all in the colour pink has earned Jaipur the title of "The Pink City". It is predominantly known for its musicians, artisans and craftsmen. Today, tourists flock to the city attracted by its fine jewelry, varied textiles and sumptuous cuisine. The purpose of the camp "Pink Shehar - Paris of India" is to create awareness on environmental issues affecting this city, to create better learning facilities for the children in schools, provide community service to the slum dwellers and poor children. The local NGOs, municipal councilor, and School Management Committee will be the partners of the camp.

FSL-India (Field Services and Inter-cultural Learning - India) was legally incorporated in 2001, with the support of like-minded national and international organizations with a primary purpose of bringing about global transformation, progress and growth through youth exchange programs. FSL-India has grown to become one of the largest volunteer hosting organizations in India, organising various volunteer and development projects throughout the country. Most of the projects are carried out independently, and some are undertaken in cooperation with local NGOs as they are aware of the development work that needs to be undertaken in an area and have hands on experience.

Our objectives are: - To promote global understanding and cultural exchange - To encourage voluntary service as a means to foster peace, equality and mutual respect - To spark new ideas for socio-economic development for the rural youth - To stress the importance of natural resource management - To support community development and bring an inter-cultural dimension to community projects - To protect and conserve nature - To bring global issues to local communities - To create self-awareness and personal development among the youth in particular - To facilitate global education through experiential learning
