I have been a volunteer since Jan 2016 and have helped Saksham expand by taking up the task of starting a new school, Prabha, in Sector-45 Faridabad. I actively engage with the community and the children and take care of organizing day-to-day requirements of the school in addition to interacting with children during weekends in the classroom. I have learnt more than what I have taught in the last one year and I know this is just a beginning.
