Roof or rasta, sail or struggle our volunteers stand by us at all times! We are where we are because of their unstinting support. Although many hands (and pockets!) contribute to our school, we must acknowledge a special few.
Deepak Dudhane :
Deepak is a retired software engineer who teaches the children computers. He is a perfectionist and takes great pains to see that every concept is clear to each child. To teach computers effectively, Deepak blends English, Maths and logic! The children adore him not least because he gives them a toffee after every class!
“The atmosphere at the school located in the heart of Dharavi is one of immense peace and calm. I look forward to being there week after week.”
-- Hema Ankolkar, Volunteer and Architect
Das Babu :
Skilled as an electrician, Das Babu is our man Friday! His presence lights up the school! Ever ready to serve, we know we can count on him for just about anything.
Aditya Nair :
Aditya is a delight to have around. He teaches music to the children and is totally child like when he does so! He also helps wholeheartedly in all school events such as the annual day, open day and sports day.
Our Saturday one-on-one tutorials are all thanks to Ramji. He spends an incredible amount of time and energy to carefully assign a volunteer to each student based on his special needs.
Lisha Menon :
We mention Lisa last so we can keep adding on to the list of her endless contributions! She helped us find staff, volunteers, organise a Christmas celebration, conduct training for teachers, organise dance classes and more! Lisha is dynamic and resourceful, our walking yellow pages who gets things done!
