I have some down time in the village before the big match between the AIFF and Yuwa and thought that I should attempt to give you all an update of what we are experiencing here in Jharkhand. Everyday brings new challenges and learning situations.
It is hard to put into words all that transpired both on and off the field. I don’t think you can fully understand what you are walking into until you are knocking on the front door and sleeping in their beds.
There are so many things that we have encountered that we never even imagined.
Life here is so simple yet we realize how complex it can become. All players do not have electricity, running water, toilets, proper amounts of food yet they are the happiest and kindest children I have ever met.
The sense of community is so strong that it seems as if they lack nothing.
