FSL-India, (Field Services and Inter-cultural Learning - India) is a youth development organisation focused towards Inter-cultural Learning through Voluntary Services set up to promote Global Understanding by providing opportunities to the youth to work in different cultural contexts to appreciate Inter-cultural learning. Thereby, reducing boundaries and bringing people to work together in harmony by understanding the Inter-cultural aspects focusing towards development of people and society through youth mobility and volunteerism. Founded in the year 2000 and legally incorporated in 2001, FSL-India is a Trust under Indian Trust Act 1882. It was formed with the support of like-minded National and International Organizations with a primary purpose to bring about global transformation, progress and growth through youth exchange programs. FSL-India has been running work camps all over India since 2001. Over the years, FSL-India has developed a strong network of local partners and local volunteers in the regions where we conduct our camps. The Volunteer camp will be run to provide an opportunity for volunteers to do a community service clubbed with Cultural exchange which will give a greater learning experience. The camp activities will focus on understanding the social and cultural aspects of the community they work. The volunteers will be given experience through interactions, workshops, and meetings with University students and Government officials to understand the development issues. We believe that the experience will give the volunteers a global perspective of the community and the possibility to be change-makers in their own community.
