Team from Trinity College, University of Melbourne visit Asha
It was wonderful to have a team of nine undergraduate and post graduate students from Trinity College, University of Melbourne for the first time at Asha. The team worked at Seelampur slum colony for nearly two weeks.
The team painted the Asha centre at Seelampur with some beautiful murals, including a beautiful display of the Asha values and the Asha logo. They also conducted workshops with College students and taught English and Computers to the younger children, along with some art and craft activities.
On their final day in Delhi, Dr Kiran invited the team for a farewell dinner at her residence. She thanked them for their wonderful work at Seelampur, inspiring and encouraging the students there. The team shared that they felt they received much more than they gave. The Chairman of Australian Friends of Asha, Robert Johanson and board member Caroline Chernov, both of whom are alumni of Trinity, had facilitated this visit and were fondly remembered by all. A huge thank you to Robert and Caroline for enabling this!
Thank you, Team Trinity for your incredible work. We hope the relationship grows in the years to come!
