Prep-work for our upcoming cocktail charity party 14 Aug

On the 1st of August I took two staff members from Vidyaranya's Ujjawala shelter to Mövenpick Hotel, in order to prepare for our upcoming cocktail charity party. One of the girls (who work as a social worker at the shelter) is also a former victim of sex trafficking. We spoke with Mr. Rahul who is the Director for food and beverages at the hotel, walked the premises of the hotel and later sat down and had some drinks and snacks. Shilpa (to the right in the photo) told me how she felt blessed by god. She explained that she was very thankful to the NGO Vidyaranya for have helped her and her daughter. We also discussed cultural differences, and how it can be indecent (for westerners) to show shoulders etc. but decent for indian women to show their belly and back in saris. We laughed quite a bit discussing these, and other, cultural clashes.

In the end, it seemed as both me and Shilpa are nervous about the upcoming event. But hey, what can possibly go wrong.. All we can do is do our best!
