HT Paathshala has opened doors for many first time volunteers to get over their initial hesitation and have a rewarding experience.
“I wanted to help in educating underprivileged children. It’s up to us to ensure they get access to the same resources wherever possible. So I volunteered to teach children English, writing and singing. We did a lot of fun activities together. The children and I had a great time when I read stories to them to teach them English or worked on activity books.
The children were so warm and full of enthusiasm. In just a few days we had a special connection. They looked forward to my classes and I waited with bated breath to see them again. This was my first time volunteering but I know it won’t be my last. I’ll be on the lookout for more such opportunities. I really want to thank HT Paathshala for giving everyone a way to interact with children and help them get an education.”
