SCOLA was honored to have Jitendra as a guest in June 2012 as a cultural and vocational ambassador of India. Jitendra was selected to visit SCOLA by the Rotary International district 3170 from India. Jitendra states “I liked the kind of work which SCOLA does and was very much impressed by it. I thought there is a lot which I could share with SCOLA about my country India, which has such a rich and diverse culture which is 5000 years old.” Jitendra expressed his desire to become a provider with Mr. David Decker from SCOLA and he was promptly accepted. Jitendra says “It is my pleasure to share about the culture and tradition about my country India, with SCOLA which in turn shares it with rest of the world, thus helping in getting to know about other cultures and in bringing people of world together thereby promoting world peace, understanding and brotherhood. I take a great pleasure in doing such a kind of work.”
