Nicola Mangan, Ireland
Hi, I'm Nicola. I'm 24 and am a Guider with the Catholic Guides of Ireland. I've been involved with guides since I was six years old and have been a leader over guides (10-14 year olds) for the past seven years. This is my second time visiting Sangam. As part of my first time visiting Sangam we took a tour of a Doorstep school, so when the opportunity to become a tare and volunteer in a doorstep school I jumped at the chance. I'm extremely excited for my adventures here in India, Sangam and the Community Partnership to begin :)
Carine Uwizeyimana, Rwanda
I am Carine, 26 years, from the heart of Africa, thousand hills country, Rwanda. I am a girl guide since 2000. Through Guiding I learned how to follow my passion, to fight for my dreams and become a great leader. Now, I am in Sangam as a Tare, going to work in community for 3 months. I will experience Indian culture, make new friends with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from around the World, learn, grow and enjoy every day that I will pass here. I know for sure this will be exciting, amazing, wonderful, Inspiring and challenging experience.
Natalia Hicks, Canada
I consider myself incredibly fortunate to the able to take part in the Community Programme here at Sangam as a twelve week Tare for the 2013 Monsoon Season. I look forward to sharing in the sisterhood of Guiding with those within Sangam and those within the greater community. Particularly, I look forward to sharing with and learning from those at the Green Tara Foundation, the partner organization which I have been placed with. Exactly what this partnership will look like is yet to be discovered, but I can say that I eagerly await sharing my quirky nerdy self with India, and having India share its quirks with me!
Nic Coyne, Ireland
Hi, my name is Nic, I'm 21 years old and I am from Ireland. I am one of the Tare living at Sangam for the next 12 weeks and I will be working with Tara Mobile Creche while I am here.
I have previous experience at a World Center having lived and worked at Our Chalet for three months as a Winter Volunteer from December '12-March '13, but this is my first time at Sangam and I am very excited to be here.
I am very much looking forward to experiencing Indian culture first hand during my time here, I'm particularly interested in trying as many different types of traditional food as I can. I'm also looking forward to experiencing an Indian festival as well as getting to celebrate Sangam Day while at the center.
If you happen to be visiting Sangam during the time that I'm here you're sure to find me wandering around, feel free to say hello or ask me questions, I'm more than happy to talk to anyone

2013 4 Week November Tare
From left to right: Peta, Sue, Jennie, Amy, Koka, Alice and Liz.
We live on an organic hill farm in then Brecon Beacons National Park, south Wales. A quiet, beautiful, rural idyll. I am now staying in the city of Pune with a population of 3,1115,431 according to the 2011 census. I must be mad, but this is the challenge of a lifetime lets just hope I'm up to it.
I have been a Brownie and Rainbow Leader for 12 years and have had some great times with them now it is time to work with older girls and help them have some of the advantages my own daughters enjoy. I'm ready, I just hope they are!
This is my second time at Sangam, and I am working with the Green Tara Foundation. I am excited to see what rewards and challenges this experience brings and am looking forward to taking home many new memories and things that I am learning here at Sangam and Green Tara Foundation.
I am extremely excited about being here in India, especially at Sangam.
Korana "Koka" Kovacevic
Gruezi, my name is Koka and I'm spending an amazing month here at Sangam as a four week Tare. I come from Slovenia where I've been involved with Guiding and Scouting for many years. My wish to live a more international side of the movement brought me to Our Chalet, WAGGGS's first World Centre in Switzerland where I've been working for the past four years.
I'm very excited about the opportunity to live at Sangam and work with the local Community Partners as well as listening and sharing stories from new friends from all over the world. As life is a patchwork of memories I look forward to each new day to collect as many as I can. India is mind-boggling and if you don't believe me, come see for yourself :)
I'm Amy from Australia. I am 25 years old and I am a Girl Guide Leader in Sydney.
I have come to India as a Tare not quite knowing what to expect but keeping a positive and open mind I hope I can meet heaps of new people, help others and learn many new things.
