Ameetha madam guides volunteers with the Teaching process/ methodologies

Sunday 23rd May 2010


Though I had started shooting the Email and SMS reminders 7 days before the meeting, I was somehow bit skeptical about the actual number of volunteers that would turn up on the D-day. I reached the centre at 9.50am, thinking at least one of them would have reached by then. However, was shocked, though not much, to find myself alone. Anyways, opened up the shutter and started doing some arrangements, keeping the fingers crossed. The clock struck 10 and was relieved to see our ever-smiling new volunteer Kuheli followed by Akshay, then Amruta and then soon the numbers started rising up.

2 year old boy expires due to severe undernutrition (negligence)


Shreya, a Law student from Noida, joins us for the month-long internship during her vacations.


7 pm:
Impressed by her day-long dedication, skills and past experiences, I call her up to assign the specific (& challenging) task of streamlining our 5 girls of Airoli-gaav community- Madhuri, Sheinki, Durpata, Einnetti and Laxmi. One by one, we visit all the houses and finally land up at Einnetti’s door. Her mother stuns us by saying,” Doctor has given his words. There are hardly any chances for the survival of my son now (2 yr old Ganesh)” Further shocked by the highly mal-nutritious state of the child, we ring up our well-wisher pediatrician Dr.Gitanjali immediately for her availability in Airoli Municipal Hospital & then instruct Einnetti’s (i.e. the child’s) mother to be ready on Friday at 10am to go to the hospital for the child’s proper check-up, this time under our supervision.

Origami and Craft Sessions

Greetings to all LEAD’ers.

The Art/Origami workshop for the kids was planned well ahead and all the required materials that were requested by the concerned person were all kept ready. Only thing that was left was the kids to lay their hands in making paper crafts.
