My ticket's arrived!
Through this blog - and my good friend Judith - I have been put in touch with a lady called Smriti who has a charity in Jaipur called Faith which she set up in 2005. Faith looks after children aged between 3 and 16 who are HIV. I have been in touch with Smriti by email and we have spoken on the telephone. She said I will be helping with the craft classes and computer classes (!) and generally around the house. I hope to go to Goa with them for their annual holiday.
I don't actually have the visa yet - or my passport because I sent that off to get the visa - but I am assured they will be with me shortly.
There are a couple of other charities I would like to visit and I have ideas of various places I want to go - to Calcutta for one - but I am still open to suggestions.
