Sarah Blumberg, an LBJ School student pursuing a Master of Global Policy Studies, spent her winter break in Mumbai as a volunteer English teacher. She wrote about the experience for the LBJ School's Baines Report, a student organization website dedicated to publishing student op-eds, blogs and other media related to public policy.

She writes, "On winter break from the LBJ School, I travelled to Mumbai as a volunteer English teacher for children living in the Kalwa slums. Working with these children provided a meaningful opportunity for me to use my newly learned skills from the LBJ School and to gain hands-on experience in my policy interests of international development and food security."
