Journey begins – world of patience, hopes and dreams

Today is the first day of my Pulse assignment in New Delhi-  capital city of India. Delhi is a vibrant city with 17 million people and is dotted with heritage monuments (few glimpses of the monuments added below). It is rainy season this time of the year in Delhi, I am eagerly waiting for the rain to bring down the mercury levels.

I spent the day at my home (picture below) for next 3 months – Aashirwad Special Education School for Mentally Challenged.

NGO

The NGO provides programs for the development and progress of the mentally challenged and other under-privileged children covering 8 km range in the adjacent slum areas.

I was greeted and received very well by the Aashirwad Team. Team comprises teachers, therapists and vocational trainers. It was a delight to watch them training the children with utmost patience to achieve the set goals (goals as small as washing hands, combing hairs, recognizing colours etc.)- a different world with different targets!

My journey to begin viewing the world through eyes of these children starts today, am sure would get many more insights in days to come, look forward to share more with you on my journey soon.

Thanks for reading my first ever blog!
