It’s more than a year since I started volunteering here, and I can proudly say that my life’s never been better! Serving hot and healthy breakfast to these less-fortunate school children may seem like an act of giving, but in reality I have received much more from them. Their love and laughter and the satisfaction I have derived from doing the work is totally out of this world.
With this service programme entering my life things have changed a lot. Now I wake up in the morning knowing that I have certain tasks, assignments to complete. ‘Jobs’ for which I don’t get paid in money, I get paid in smiles on tiny faces.
The Annapoorna Breakfast programme has given me a fantastic opportunity to make a meaningful difference to the lives of these children.The shy but friendly smiles, tiny voices praying and singing together, and little hands delicately eating the meal, help to make the entire experience completely joyful and one that I look forward.
