Day 1 of CV’s Blood donation camp in aid of children being treated for Thalassemia. Great to see participation from corporates who are making blood donation a part of their working day. #everyvolunteercounts #chennaivolunteers #donatebloodsavelives
Launching “Volunteers Speak”, a series of written & spoken experiences shared by as some Chennai Volunteers. Count yourself in 👍🏻 This is what our team lead, Rakesh has to say,”My name is Rakesh Dondeti and I'm from Chennai. I have been a part of Chennai Volunteers for 6 years now. 
I've volunteered in places like Spastn School for mentally challenged, Madras Seva Sadan, Cancer Institute, Anjuman, MSSW, Mary Immaculate. I've also been the part of the volunteering team for the Chennai Wipro Marathon.

I participate in these causes because I believe that making someone happy and helping them in a way that can be beneficial to them can be a rewarding experience.

At Chennai Volunteers, everyone is so supportive and helpful. I met a lot of people who are inspiring and who have devoted their lives for the betterment of society. The atmosphere here is awesome. Working here comes naturally to me because there are so many  good hearted, thoughtful people around and satisfaction of giving joy to others and spreading knowledge is incomparable to anything else. The best part is that this experience taught me so much: patience, the value of social work and charity, and being humble. 
My advice to everyone would be to spend time with children and be a part of their lives. Each day brings new challenges and solutions, and you get to learn about yourself. Experience the joy of giving.” #chennaivolunteers #volunteermatters #everyvolunteercounts
Countries around the world celebrate June 14  as World Blood Donors Day. A day to thank their volunteer blood donors for regularly donating their safe blood to save needy lives.  It’s in this spirit that we at Chennai Volunteers hold our annual blood donation camp every June. This year, we are hosting the camp on June 21 and 22 in Chennai, in partnership with Madras Voluntary Blood Bureau, Jeevan & FLO ( FICCI Ladies Organisation). We encourage you to be blood donors with friends, family and colleagues. Because each one of us has the power to save a life.

Carl Jung said,”One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.“. As we start a new academic year of teaching, our skilled-volunteers led a workshop for teachers from our partner NGOs. The result was amazing!  Thank you #rotaryclubofmadras for seeding the idea for the #communityservice1 project & asking us to extend it to the teaching community. #everyvolunteercounts #chennaivolunteers #rotaryclubofmadras #volunteerteacher #inspiringteachers #diversityinaction

CV was proud to be present at the launch of Prem Vihar, by our NGO partner, Madras Sewa Sadan. Aptly inaugurated on the 70th birth anniversary of Mrs. Prema Kumar, it stands tall as a promise kept, a vision realised and a legacy created. It will be home to many deserving girls who study at a school on the same campus and some elderly destitute women. It will support and share space with many deserving NGOs who will work out of Prem Vihar, making it a hub for some amazing social initiatives. Kudos to this 👍🏻#chennaivolunteers #madrassevasadan
Its been an incredible summer at CV! We welcomed 8 student interns from across India and each one of them charted their own journey of impact and volunteering. They were interns on their resumes, for us they worked like Team CV, sometimes even more than us! And for all the questions being raise about millennials, we salute their commitment and compassion. #studentinterns #chennaivolunteers #volunteermatters
The end of #summercampforchamps is always The evaluation session where the students speak on a topic of their choice. Snapshots of the final session at a boys home we taught through the summer. And now it’s time for regular academic sessions to start. #chennaivolunteers #everyvolunteercounts #volunteermatters
A painting is a vision that becomes a reality with effort and a relevant message. Corporate volunteers spent an entire day painting brightness and inspiration into the lives of students who will come back to their classrooms today. Thank you Parry Nutraceuticals for volunteering your time 👍🏻#chennaivolunteers #corporatevolunteers #everyvolunteercounts

They learn as they play and chatter non stop! And we learn as we teach them everyday, making memories of their chatter. #chennaivolunteers #volunteermatters #summercampforchamps #volunteerdiaries
