Stories of Volunteers: Nehali Sahu
“It was a great experience visiting Akshaya Patra at Pathancheruvu and serving Mid-day Meals to the children of Zilla Parishad School in Shivanagar. It gave me an insight into the great work that Akhaya Patra does as an organization by providing mid-day meals to under privileged children.
The Zilla Parishad School has three sections (lower, middle and upper primary) and provides education to around 350 students. The Giving Campaign gave me an opportunity to spend time with the children, know their world, bring smiles to their faces and play with them. Serving food to them gave me immense inner satisfaction.
After serving them meals we had an interactive session with them which helped us to understand their aspirations. Some wanted to become doctors, while others wished to be engineers, policemen or teachers. Spending time with them brought back our own childhoods to us. We left determined that it is our responsibility to give back to society and help at least a few students achieve their dreams.”
