Educational sessions for flyover/slum kids/women with usual enthusiasm

Friends, last weekend, volunteers of Blue Pen conducted educational sessions for flyover/slum kids/women with usual enthusiasm.

Saurabh, Volunteer Coordinator (Munirka-Nizamuddin) shares, “We started our educational session from munirka shelter home, where Dr. Manorama Khanna (Chairman of our Blue Pen NGO) taught counting and alphabets to kids.
At Munirka slum, I took test of mathematics. Later, I gathered my students and taught hindi to them. Then i taught essay writing. In the end, as per established protocol of Blue Pen, our educational session ended with national anthem with kids. ”

Saurabh adds,”After that, we moved to our next center at nizamuddin, where no classes could be conducted due to some administrative. After lunch we moved to our last parallel centre tughlaqabad and okhla phase-1. Where regular classes were conducted.”

Saurabh adds,”Since winters are getting colder by each day, we thought to distribute free sweaters to all munirka and okhla Slum Children. On 1st december 2019, we have gifted sweaters all 10 munirka slum children sweaters after their regular educational classes.On receiving the sweaters, the children had smile on their face and feeling of gratitude in their hearts for Blue Pen NGO.”

Ms Kavita Chaudhary, Volunteer Coordinator (IIT-Safdarjung-Sangam Vihar) shares “We conducted blue pen session at IIT FLYOVER, This time,due to end sem exams, no. of volunteers were less so I and Shama managed the classes. Shama taught maya and sonu. Its heartening to see that now they both have learnt all alphabets and can easily recognize the words. It’s good to see they have started like us. They don’t want us to end the session as they always wanted to do more and more work.”

Kavita adds,”At Safdarjung Center, routine sessions were conducted. Riya, Rimmi and Purshotum read english book and translated it into hindi in case of few difficult words, I helped.
At the end of the sessions at Safdarjung, Preeti ma’am along with her husband and daughter gave samosas and chocolates to kids. Children really enjoyed.I would really like to thank Preeti Ma’am for this benevolent gesture.”
