It is indeed heartening to see young professionals take time out of their hectic schedule to make a difference among deserving and needy people. 
Dr. Shwetha Ravi leads by example as she holds an interactive and informative session on personal health and menstrual hygiene for the young women of YWCA. Thank you Dr. Shweta for such an informative session.. the girls felt they were more aware at the end of your chat.

When a volunteer invited others to join her in spreading cheer and festivity among children! Volunteering is what you make of it... even skilled volunteers sometimes like to engage in recreational volunteering.
The impact of focused employee engagement is often undervalued by some. But there are some organisations that lead by example - teach students by volunteering their time along with contributing to the institution. Case in point, our corporate volunteers from Paypal who painted the walls of a suburban school with relevant messages and involved the students as well. They also contributed library books for these kids to read and promised to come back 😊. Yet another inspiring association, a meaningful connection. Thank you Paypal, on behalf of Bhoomika Trust and CV.

Percussion is a rhythmic relaxation and developmental tool for children with special needs. Who would know this better than Maestro Muralikrishnan as he took a large group of young children at SPASTN on a drumming trail of calming energy and complete immersion. Snapshots of this special session by CV S.Murali Krishnan. Thank you Murali for this and everything else you transform as a volunteer 👍🏻

Kindness Unlimited  The past month has been fulfilment unlimited for all CVs. We started with the idea of spreading lessons on KINDNESS and sharing goodies ( snacks, sweets, stationery, etc.) with them. the following 13 days saw CV reach out to 6000+ children in the schools we work and encourage them to understand and demonstrate kindness.. through a story about "Kutty Shanthi". What ensued was an amazing cascade of storytelling a& interpretation by the students in the form of role play, skits and team games!  And all of us were left speechless by how the children shared their ideas of kindness, giving us hope & confidence in future adult Indians. 
A big shout out to our very own, Sonali Shah who carried this concept through and pushed us all to serve smiles among all the children.
