Pictures often speak better than words so here a a few highlights of Emilie's recent 2-day visit to innocent foundation project with Find Your Feet in Uttar Pradesh, India.
The first day started with a warm and colourful welcome.
Travelling to the second village involved a little adventure.
But it was all worth it - I was told all about the vegetable programme that Find Your Feet is running with the innocent foundation. The aim is to help the farmers diversify their crops and it's cleraly working - I got given more vegetables than I could carry.
And then the best bit: the village photo.
We ended the first day around the vegetable tree of luck - a beautiful use of my gifts.
On day 2, I thought I needed more than face paint to blend in, so Savitri helped me put on a sari -not an easy task.
We followed this by a weaving class and general chat about setting up a business.
And last but not least - delicious Indian treats were passed round constantly. Here we have a mix of peas, biscuits, strange fruits and lumps of sugar (a rare delicacy)
