ConnectBharat made me realize the power of individual agency through making me actually witness the practical work taken by social change agents many years ago. I saw the positivity on the rural ground work, in each rural person because of few men who believed in not in just talking of the problem but in taking actions and trusting the potential of these people. This trip of course restores faith in humanity and motivated me to work in rural setting.
Connect Bharat was a great experience to learn about different organizations that are doing amazing work in remote regions. What I really liked about the 5 days trip was that change-makers from different walks of life were participating, yet felt the connection in 1 common belief - to learn and nurture self and others. View of Himalayas is something that I will cherish for a long time and am truly thankful to Connect Bharat for such memories. Overall, I would highly recommend to be a part of connect Bharat experience for the people involved and the places you will visit and learn
