Volunteer story

My volunteering teaching at Parijat Academy



There are only a few moments in life when we actually get the time for ourselves and even fewer moments when we get to do something for others. The thought of doing something for issues not directly related to one’s own self or loved ones is itself beautiful and rare. As such, given an opportunity to serve the needy or work selflessly towards the betterment of the society should play a vital role in everyone’s lives. Only then we can be… Continue

Such is the saga of a nondescript locality and a humble youth that faith in goodness and human endeavour is established once more. Everyone visiting this place cannot help but admire the tenacity and zeal of this youth, who has changed the perception of an… Continue
