So there we were, with a new set of volunteers and finally ready to take on class 4.
We were joined by our colleague from IBM Daksh and this was her 1st class teaching kids..
We are an organization born mainly out of IBM, though we strive to increase local community participation in our organization as a means of doing something meaningful with our Saturday time and also giving back to the society.
Coming back to the present, i was outside class 4 when a kid from class 7 looked @ me and said ‘wont you teach english to class 7’, for a second i was struck for words and then what seemed like the longest time i felt so touched that i had to look away..
As our volunteer based grows we are now faced with this question, should we continue teaching standard 1 to 4 or do we go up from class 5 to 10, this is a larger question which the group continues to debate and perhaps will continue to do so as we grow.
I still thinking of how to answer that question which the girl asked me and it remains to date one of the most intense rushes of emotion that i have experienced
