SOuL Initiatives – 1

Asha Kiran Charitable Trust

The Asha Kiran Charitable Trust is a NGO that runs street schools on the footpaths of Mumbai suburbs. Children living in the vicinity avail of these schools. The schools are free and run by volunteers. They cater to different age groups but primarily for primary and middle school children. As part of SOuL, we taught English to the children studying on the pavement at Versova over a period of one year. Along with teaching them english, we also taught them the basics of math and the sciences. While conversing with some of the volunteers who worked with these children we began realising how fortunate some of us had been. In our time at this school, we became great friends and mentors to the students and some of us even had the esteemed opportunity to meet their families and visit their homes. It was indeed a moulding experience.
