Happy 4th Of July! Remembering and Honoring Our Volunteers From the US

The fourth of July mark for the American Independence, its an official holiday in the USA commemorating the Declaration of Independence. This day marks as the day of freedom of American people from British rule and formation of United States of America as an independent country.

On this day Volunteer FDIP would also like to express our gratitude and thanks to all the volunteers we had over the last 9 years. We have experienced the sense of freedom and independence in every American volunteer we hosted so far. The confidence and enthusiasm they expressed in each and every program are really commendable.

Here are the names of our volunteers from the United States we would like to give an honorable mention on this day:

Ben Borchard

A psychology student from St. Olaf College, Ben has been really helpful and supportive to our program. During his stay in the Buddhist Monastery, he actively participated in the different activities and apart from that he helped the FDIP to create a psychology awareness related story by contributing his knowledge and voice over.
