Strike called off

The strike called at the start of the year by the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha, which blocked all traffic between Siliguri and Darjeeling and Kalimpong, was called off in mid-February. This was a relief for us, since our first volunteer of the year was unable to reach their school. We now have a volunteer in place in the Gyan Jyoti school outside Kalimpong, and we are hopeful that our programme can run without further disruption from now on.

I want to let you know that I have looked at a lot of volunteer organizations since I did your program and you have (as far as I can tell) one of the best. I really like how much you personally care about each volunteer and each school.
