Precisely, this is what has happened when we as a group of people went ahead to support the poor students in the government school (Xth Standard students) helping them with supplies of all stationery material which will enable them to appear for their final exams this summer.
Through a consolidated effort from each one of us, we were able to collect the required material (writing pads, pens, pencils, geometry sets ) which catered 150 students in a government high school.
Dropping the donations in the drop box and just a thought about the entire program would have been an abrupt end to our satisfaction levels if we didn’t make a conscious effort of actually visiting the school through the distribution program on 20th Feb, 2010.
Around 30 people volunteered to this program. Most of us after a day long’s work in the night shift, it was time to go to bed….but few people made an exception to actually postpone their sleep and spend some quality time in the school interacting with the students.
It was an amazing experience getting to know their ambitions and aspirations in spite of their hardships to attend the school and just thinking…..we tried to make some difference in their lives to boost their morale and self confidence.
“Spending your personal time is the precious gift you can give anyone” – This has been the take away statement through this experience….!!!
We all shall look forward for many such instances which we will consciously turn them into unforgettable moments with a little more effort and time.
Thank you one and all for being able to support us with this initiative and also being present at the distribution program.
