I had a great time for the past one week being a volunteer of YFS at Sarswathi Vidya Mandir, Badanagpet.
I registered myself as a volunteer on Jan 1 of this year but made my active participation only on last Saturday. Till then I was overwhelmed with negative thoughts like “Can I ever volunteer a event ?” .However after making my first attempt through plantation drive held at the school , it was proved that I was carrying wrong notions with me all these days and what all I need is a spirit to serve the society .
In the first week , I got an opportunity to take part in eye Screening as well as in teaching students of the school . Hospitality of the school children and the staff towards volunteers fascinated me . Million dollar worth smiles of the children gave me immense satisfaction that i could never get if I hadn’t joined YFS. At the end of the week , I found a very positive and encouraging atmosphere built around me which provided enthusiasm for more active participation on coming days.
Thanks to YFS for providing such a wonderful opportunity !!
