Sangam's Community Programme gives participants a chance to volunteer in the community with Sangam Community Partners. We call Community Programme Participants "Tare", which means "Star" in Hindi. These are our current Tare!
2013 January-March 12 Week Tare
Max Gill, UK
Hi I’m Max, I’m a Tare at Sangam and I’m going to be working at the School at Anand Gram. I’m 27 and from Stoke an Trent, Staffordshire in the UK.
This is my second time at Sangam, and I am excited to be back for longer to explore Pune and India more, improve my Hindi and meet lots of great guiding friends so I can share my experiences with my Guide unit back at home.
I love India and Sangam as a culture and it has been a dream of mine to explore the wonderful regions and cultures here that so interest me.
Esther Amakyi, Ghana
Hello my name is Esther Amakyi, I am 24 years of age, I came from Ghana, Africa region. I am currently the Guides Commissioner of the Ghana Girl Guides Association. I am enrolled on the Community Programme, because I felt I had to extend my “third arm” through volunteering at a place where my services are needed. I am super excited I am at this programme. I am here to make new friends, learn about the Indian Culture and to explore. Being a Tare at Door Step School, is a great opportunity to learn new things and live with new people. My aim is to build on leadership skills and share my knowledge as well. Community Programme, here I come.
Paola Nieto, Colombia
Hola, my name is Paola, I'm 19 and I’m from Colombia!!
I'm musician and play cello, and now I'm in the middle of an amazing adventure!
I have been a girl scout for a year in Bogota, Colombia and the last November my group had its first anniversary! My family have been Girls Scouts or Scouts all their life, so I have been the valuable treasures of this movement at home all my life, and this is a really good opportunity to share, and learn about the experience of a lot of Girls Scouts around the world, using our time to work and participate in different communities of Pune, and together know more about the unique Indian culture.
Becky Thurston, UK
My name is Becky and I am 18 years old. I am currently a Guide Leader in the UK. I am on a “gap year” and after this I will study to become a Social Worker. I hope that becoming Tare will enable me to do this. I am very excited about working with Deep Griha as I believe it highlights the positive impact Guiding has on both its members and the Community it surrounds. I look forward to working with people from different cultures and international backgrounds.
Anna Swisher, USA
Hiya! My name is Anna Swisher. I am 24 years old and I have been a member of the Girls Scouts of the United States of America since I was 5. I am from Lexington, Va but I love to travel and have had the opportunity to both live and travel to many different places. In the past couple of years apart from living in the USA I have lived in Djibouti and Japan. I attend Hampshire College in Amherst, Ma where I am pursuing a degree in cultural anthropology and foreign policy. It was a combination of my studies and my time as a scout that made me interested in coming to Sangam. In 2008 I worked as a volunteer at Pax Lodge Center in London. During my time there I met many wonderful and amazing individuals that continue to have a special place and influence in my life. By applying to work in Sangam's Community Programme I have been given the opportunity to forge new friendships as well as to expand my area of study through hands on experience and volunteer work with Tara Mobile Crèche.
