Team from Monash University visits Jeevan Nagar slum colony
A team led by Erin Lynn from Monash University, Australia visited Asha during the month of February. The 8-member team comprising postgraduate students and faculty from the university spent a week working at Asha’s slum based centre in Jeewan Nagar slum colony.
The team painted the children’s resource centre in Jeevan Nagar with vibrant murals. The children in Jeevan Nagar simply loved the new look of the centre. The team also got engaged in a lot of value based discussions with young students which was enjoyed by all.
During their week-long stint at Jeevan Nagar, the team members were able to build a healthy rapport with the women and children from the community. As the women narrated their journey with Asha, the team members were delighted to observe the changes taking place in the lives of the community as a result of Asha’s interventions. It was an immensely enriching experience for the community as well, as they got to learn about the culture, lifestyle and history of Australia.
It was the first time that Asha hosted a visit from the Monash University and would like to thank the team for taking out the time to visit the community. We look forward to many more such visits in days to come.
