Little Abhishek, Divya, Priyanka and Shiva were very happy to get admission to a good public school to pursue their education. These children of HIV infected parents live in an orphanage in Gurgaon. However, because of starting their educational journey at a slightly later age they were finding it difficult to cope with their science and math syllabus at school. As a part of Samvedna Senior Care’s Community outreach program our club member, Mr. Chadha, a retired Government Servant, decided to volunteer his time to teach these kids mathematics. Ever since he has started teaching these kids, they are able to do their homework and they are also grasping the concepts.
Mr. Chadha has this to say about the programme – ” I am enjoying my time with the kids and find what I do very fulfilling and emotionally rewarding. I feel like I am able to utilize my time constructively.”
Samvedna Senior care’s Community Outreach program is a platform for senior citizens to do social work in a structured way, members engage in volunteering programs according to their availability. It helps senior citizens engage in meaningful, fulfilling activities with a sense of purpose and accomplishment.
