Shopping for salwars

Salwar kameez is a traditional Indian outfit made up of pants, a long tunic shirt (kurta) and a scarf (dupatta). The students are required to wear these clothes in accordance with the dress code at BACAS. However, it really helps them to fit in more and shows that they are embracing the culture. Not to mention that they are so beautiful!

Yesterday the students had the chance to get in some much anticipated shopping. We traveled by bus (first time) to a market to sort through piles and piles of clothing at the different shops.Thankfully their peer mentors were along to help with sizes, bartering, and fashion advice! Next they stopped for a coffee break and a small small snack and tried parantha- definitely a winner!!!

After a little more shopping, we felt like we had succeeded and it was time to go home. Since it was getting late, we decided to just catch an auto which is always a fun and exciting way to travel!

This morning the students arrived at church dressed beautifully in their traditional salwar kameez. Batch 5 is ready for classes to begin tomorrow!
