Hi my name is Neal O’Shea, I am currently studying Business Studies, History and R.E. and am hoping to study Building Surveying next year at university.

From the moment I heard of the Udayan charity I was inspired to give a helping hand to the children, and after listening to various assemblies lead by Mrs. Weldon, asked if I could come on the trip.

I hope to gain an insight into the culture of India, and the lives of the people in it. I think that the trip will be a fantastic experience, and hopefully one which can show me how greatful I should be with my privileged lifestyle. I hope that I can in some way touch the lives of some of the Udayan children, and that I can bring a smile to their faces. I’m also looking forward to bonding with those I am travelling with.
