Hear what the community is saying about CCS!

"CCS volunteers have, for many years, been an integral part of our organization. They help us meet our goals by teaching women skills that make a significant positive impact on their lives."

"Interacting with people from new cultures is an enriching experience for the children, and gives them a rare opportunity to be exposed to a world outside of the community."

"The volunteers help to bridge the gap between our organization and the community. They help to get the community interested in the important work that we do."

Between her first-hand knowledge of CCS India and her professional and academic background in counseling, Bela is an incredible resource for volunteers.

She brings with her over 20 years of experience in international development and social services, and is renowned for her work in the field of special education. Bela is full of surprises: she loves all kinds of music, from classical Indian to Arabian music, to Jazz, and she’s an award-winning sharpshooter!
