Operation Asha Reached Shalai!

Operation Asha has arrived in Shalai! The final stretch of the road was slow going as the team crawled up the canyon to Shalai. After 70 hrs of grueling travel everyone is in good health and optimistic about working with the children of Shalai. This community falls with in the top 50 poorest areas in India. All other NGOs have avoided the area because it is out of the way! Our team met their translators for the first time and enjoyed a great dinner together. The internet reception has proved difficult at this location so we are still trying to figure out how to post the kids blogs. The bags that didn't make the flight cleared customs yesterday and are on the way to meet up with the team tomorrow.
