Sharanya’s endeavour

Sharing a beautiful story of Sharanya, a 15 year old student from Frankfurt, who raised funds for the children of Sandipani Muni School. Initially Sharanya had thought of simply asking for money from relatives and neighbours in Jaipur during her stay in winter break. But when encouraged by her parents to be creative to raise the funds she decided to raise the money instead. Since she likes to work in the kitchen , she came up with this unique idea of making pizzas.

She wrote about her experience with us and we are sharing it with you all here: Over the three days volunteering as a dentist, I must have seen over 500 children. I was very warmly welcomed every morning by your students and staff and really enjoyed participating in morning assemblies for Arti and Tulsi puja before class. I could see that the children were very enthusiastic and very organised because of the special guidance and dedication offered by the staff.  The children were very eager to learn and responded very positively to any advice and questions when they had concerns. Towards the end of the morning, I found it very entertaining that Rupesh had fully grasped the diseases and their causes and proceeded to give advice to the […]
