Our School Teams and Student Teams

We have three Teams travelling to Dehli, India this summer to journey with Saphara and our partner schools in India.

We are delighted to have hosted our last preparation events together with our two School Teams, where we met with parents and carers and discussed more about what our Teams would engage in and encounter.

It was wonderful to witness the friendships being developed by students from different schools here in NI.  You could feel the excitement and delight at the prospect of what these students are going to experience.

We have our Student Team residential coming up at the beginning of June, where our University Students will plan and prepare for their time in India. 

The purpose of their trip is to teach English to very disadvantaged children in Dehradun, a city 200 miles north of Delhi.  They’ll be teaching at SNEHA School – a wonderful Christian school where children from the poorest backgrounds get to feel valued and loved – often for the first time in their lives. Helping us to ‘change the world one child at a time’.
