Our CL trip to Provision Asia was an amazing experience and a huge eye opener to all the types and difficulties that people face today. We started off with the tour of the school and we discussed the multiple problems that they are raising awareness about and helping the poor get over. We discussed their initiative on how to bring awareness and giving the right tools to the poor people of Bangalore so they can overcome diabetes and other major problems that the rural people of Bangalore face.
But all that information wasn't important and who would remember it, but that's where the real hands on experience came in. We were able to really be with the children and saw what they could do and how they are trying to overcome the terrible things that had happened to them. That was the most influential and most breath taking part of the entire experience.

I learned that I am very lucky that I can swim, read, write, etc. I found the trip very eye opening.
I often forget how lucky I am with the experience of traveling abroad, when some of those kids have not even traveled out of their village. - Allison
I learned how to get around in a wheelchair. I liked talking with people that don’t see the same way as I normally do. - Manon
I learned about disabilities and how hard it is to be in a wheel chair.I really liked it and many people in my class weren’t scared of going because the people there are still humans. I liked the song they made. - Zain
I learnt there are people with disabilities, but they can still be successful and happy. - Waka
I learned that riding in a wheelchair is very difficult, and that people with disabilities should be treated like normal people, and not as outcasts. I really enjoyed the day, and figured out how hard it is to ride in a wheel chair. I also realised that there are many people that are unfortunate to have these disabilities, and that we should not take anything for granted. - Aman
I learned that just because people have disabilities, doesn’t mean that we should just help them, we should understand them and treat them as we would treat a normal friend. I started to try understanding people with disabilities. - Sooahn
I had a very good experience as I got to learn how hard a life of a disabled person is and I also got to ride in a wheel chair outside and help the kids colour. - Peher
