I was very excited when I got the opportunity to join as a volunteer at UPAY, all thanks to Harsha and Rashmi Didi who considered me as a volunteer at electronic city Shikaripalya village, it is such a good chance to share your knowledge with the children of your own locality, where there is so much need to educate the younger ones. It feels great.
I am a second year student, studying diploma in electronics and communication engineering.
My first day was very good since I had no experience in teaching, I learnt how to handle the younger kids, their ideas and behaviour.
We began the first class with prayer followed by some simple physical exercises then we began with academics. First task was to write their names, then teaching them basic letters, and numbers. We even had few games which were very interesting for the kids as it helped them to enhance their listening skills, concentration power and also a physical activity.
There can be nothing better in this world more than sharing our knowledge. Because when we spread knowledge it increases our own knowledge as well. My experience was great and I hope in the coming days we progress to a very high level.
