A team of nine undergraduate and post graduate students from Trinity College, University of Melbourne volunteered with Asha during the month of Januray. Visiting the charity for the first time ever, they worked at Seelampur slum colony for nearly two weeks.
The team painted the Asha centre at Seelampur with fun and vibrant murals. They also conducted workshops with College students and taught English and Computers to the younger children, along with some art and craft activities.
On their final day in Delhi, Dr Kiran invited the team for a farewell dinner at her residence. She thanked them for their wonderful work at Seelampur, and remarked how they have inspired and encouraged the students there. The team, on their part, said they felt they had received much more than they could have ever given back.
The Chairman of Australian Friends of Asha, Robert Johanson and board member Caroline Chernov, both of whom are alumni of Trinity, had facilitated this visit and were fondly remembered by all.
Thank you, Team Trinity for your incredible work. We hope the relationship grows in the years to come!
