I have a gaggle of new girls who I started training Friday at Prerana (http://www. preranaantitrafficking. . org/programs/homes. . htm). . Prerana is located in Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, a dry, dusty area 40 minutes south of where I’m currently staying. . Trees are rare, so any walking is done in the full unabated heat of the midday sun which bakes my North American brain.
Green Tara Project will be returning to India in 2015. We are confirmed to be expanding our work with two organizations, and looking to add new organizations with which to outreach.
Mumbai and other to be determined.

The swelling in my feet and the heat of Mumbai hit me almost as soon as plane hit the tarmack at Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport. Driving through the streets at 1:30 in the morning, Mumbai was lively as ever, this being the weekend of one of India’s largest festivals – Diwali. . Fireworks erupted randomly along the taxi’s route to my new digs in Chembur. . After a few mishaps, I fell into bed at 5:30 in the morning. . Thus began GTP’s Trip Four. .
Because of Diwali, I have had a few days to catch up on sleep, start reclaiming the bits of Hindi I’ve learned on past trips, make some new friends and enjoy the celebrations over here.
