We travelled to Kerala from Coimbatore on Saturday morning, getting our plan in place for the workshops that were to be held there. The topography in south India is absolutely stunning. Our Social Surfing journey through the country has given us a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience seeing India in the best way possible. Interacting with people from all states has taught us a lot.
It was Day 6 and we were at Vimala College, Thrissur. A total of 108 girls attended from the Departments of Economics and Social Work. To see a group of students engaging and participating with enthusiasm makes us happy like nothing else does.
Most of the crowd was active on Facebook and participated wholeheartedly in the activities of the workshop. A lot of the times it happens that the girls in some regions are extremely shy and timid but it was heartening to see them being energetic and willingly take part in the games.
The faculty of the college was also very enthusiastic. They were encouraging the students and participating themselves as well. Vimala College has more than 2000 students and 13 departments. Before we left, the faculty made us promise that we would come back for more workshops for their other students. We see that as a definite sign of success and are already looking forward to interacting with the girls at the college again!
