Team from Twickenham visits Asha
Recently, a team consisting 10 of graduate students from Twickenham, London visited Asha for two weeks and worked at Mayapuri slum colony. They painted the children’s resource centre and the computer room at the Asha centre with fun and colorful murals. The rooms look extremely beautiful and the children really loved them. The team also engaged in highly interactive English conversation and craft lessons with the children of different age groups.
The team also got an opportunity to meet with the class XII students from Asha slums who have recently received acceptance at Delhi University during the event small events organised earlier this month at the Asha headquarter to congratulate them.
They expressed great joy at seeing such a large number of students from slums being able to go to university and congratulated them on their success. Few members also shared their college experiences with the students and motivated them to always look ahead in life and continue working hard.
To gain further insight into Asha’s activities the team also visited Kalkaji, another slum colony Asha works in and spent a day talking to the children and women’s groups and observing various activities at the Asha centre there. Asha is immensely thankful for the support of such enthusiastic young adults and looks forward to developing a long term relationship with them.
