One of Sarvahitey’s members, who stays in Sector 52, Gurugram, Haryana, had a keen eye for opportunities that could be availed in the social service sector, and therefore, on identifying a slum settlement near Sector 52, Gurugram, wherein he found numerous homes of refugees from Bangladesh, he sought to avail that opportunity and extend his generous hand towards them.
Thereafter, the core team of Sarvahitey took cognizance of the slum and went there to ascertain the opportunities that lay in front of it, for progressing the settlement in the manner that the rest of the slums and underprivileged (that we cater to) were being helped. The members spoke to the residents of the slum settlement and found that they were overly eager to send their kids to any place that could afford the children an opportunity for growing intellectually.
Sarvahitey, thereafter, gave a shoutout to the residents of Gurugram and neighbouring areas, to ascertain whether there were enough volunteers to go ahead with the project. As expected, friends and acquaintances grabbed the opportunity to serve and several new members were added to its already steadily growing team.
Since then, our members, both, existing, and new, have been teaching the children of the Bangladeshi refugees each Saturday and Sunday, and much to their delight, and ours, the project has been spearheaded with great success. The most surprising part is that the language gap between the teachers and the taught hasn’t hindered the effectiveness of the classes and batches at this particular slum settlement at Gurugram.
