We are delighted to share a blog written by student Sri Harshini from DRS International School, who is part of a team delivering a Global Goals project for the 2019-20 Global Goals Competition.
Their project is among over 957 social action projects currently running as part of the GSL movement and we are excited to be supporting them to design and lead positive social change in their community.
My inspiration was from an initiative called Teach India. I thought this can be great so I met with people of similar and we kick-started our project These girls were timid and hesitant to talk at the very first meeting. I spoke with them and later after several interactions, they became my friends. After this, we saw a great change in these girls. Every week we teach the girls performing arts and tutor them. The girls are confident and improve their scores in academics.
I have developed patience and perseverance. I learned I can teach because I was always afraid about teaching. The biggest lesson I had to overcome is to teaching the kids in their native language and catering to different paces of learning.
I sought guidance from my teacher and I applied different techniques that was helpful to much extent.
The Next Chapter
I would recommend this to all the teens to do any service to contribute to the community. The satisfactory feeling you get after the humane act is inexpressible. The feeling I each time meeting these girls for classes is the greatest moment of my life which I will cherish down the lane after many years.
There are minute and greatest ways we can contribute towards these goals.
