People who volunteered with the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam

" The Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam is like no other place on Earth. The school is a warm and welcoming community of talented students and dedicated educators. .... I was able to bring my own teaching style and methods to some of the most charming and hard-working students I have ever worked with. Outside of the classroom, I was given the freedom to explore the local towns and countryside, getting a true sense of the local culture. "
