Jaipur hosts Global Village Event to connect higher education students internationally
Jaipur-based AIESEC–NGO is organising its Global Village Event on August 18 at Poornima Institute of Engineering & Technology in which young college and university students of many European and Asian countries are participating, said Youssef Vahby, 22, a student of Misr international University of Egypt who is going to participate in the event.

She added that AISEC was involved in the area of developing leadership potential of youth through experiential learning, volunteer experiences and professional internships in India and she was placed as a volunteer at Disha that works for the education of children with special needs.

Vahby added, "My friend, Lisa, 20, who is an accomplished singer, will be singing an Arabic song at the event which will be marked by showcasing of singing, dancing, food, customs, costumes, music, literary work and cultural traditions of different countries."

She along with other volunteers and interns from Egypt were in Jaipur for the last one and a half months and had visited Udaipur, Agra, Chandigarh and Shimla. They were awed by the cultural diversity and heritage of India.

"I have fallen in love with the cultural heritage of India and its unity in diversity, and would like visit it again. Though I am a student of English literature, but during my volunteer work as assistant teacher for teaching English to differently abled children, I realised the importance of visual support and rhythmic musical speaking for such children. These children require different kinds of stories and poems which are needed to be created. Unfortunately, across the world, special children's literature has been ignored and writers are needed to come to come forward for this noble work," she remarked.

AISEC holds that such events enable both employers and organisations across India to connect with a global network of talent leading to development of youth leadership by facilitating social development and professional internships.
