For the month of February we had a wonderful volunteer Spela from Slovenia. And like she always says that sLOVEnia has love “in it”, she also carried it all the way with her for Vrindavan and FFLV kids. In a month long service, Spela showed great enthusiasm in giving group coaching classes to the school girls. She also taught the girls some lessons on ” GO GREEN AND CLEAN” and ”PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT”. The girls learned public speaking, and english conversational skills. Another important topic that Spela taught the girls was “SWOT ANALYSIS”. After the training, the girls also gave a presentation about what they have learned and surprised everyone with their confidence and lovely presentations. We are very grateful to Spela for her time and dedication towards teaching the girls. We hope that you can come back again to FFLV next year.
We would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to Pooja Khanna who has set up a medical emergency fund for the poor at Food for Life Vrindavan. Pooja has given $2500 for any medical emergencies that may come our way, so that we are able to help people immediately, without waiting for the funds to be raised. Pooja has been a long time supporter of FFLV. She has a heart of gold and many times she has gone out of her way to help the people, especially the children of Vrindavan. No matter how busy she may be, or what corner of the world she may be, she always finds time to come to Vrindavan to meet the children personally. We really appreciate her help and send her best wishes. Regards Team FFLV.
