Teach India- Day 1

I reached the centre allotted to me well before time for the orientation that was supposed to begin at 10.30. I was welcomed by a Akanksha student who handed me a form and a pen.

I filled up the form and then they showed us a presentation-cum-video about their NGO. Then had a group talk to one of the coordinators, Evangeline who showed us around the centre and shared the objectives of Akanksha. This  was followed by a one-on-one session to check our profiles and ascertain where we fit the best and in what role as a volunteer.

Evangeline came about as a warm lady who listened to me and my ideas intently and gave me my options. I chose a center close to my place but the timings are what i am worried about…i have never woken up at 8’o clock in the morning here considering i work in a noon-night shift 😉 but i can always jump out of my crib a bit early for such a novel cause. 

Afterthought:

I got to know that the student, Janardhan, who welcomed me was at the centre for the past 10 years and has done a diploma in automobile repair. He hopes to start his own garage someday.

More on the NGO and student conditions in coming posts. Please comment.
