In the 1st week, we will work at the bag making place as our main activity. We have to help them to do their daily work. Making bags is time consuming work and they need human resources to achieve their targets. In the 2nd week, we will visit around and do 1. Cultural exchange with villagers and youth, 2. Activities with children and 3. Work and assist to the self-help group members' activities.
