This summer, my friend Mahir and I had decided to do something worthwhile with our time. Last summer, I had interned with another NGO, but that had been routine ‘boring’ office work. This summer, I wanted to do something that really did make a change.
Saturday, 24th November, at Nathupur Center was a great experience. I was helping Vidya (Ms. Vidya Surendran), who had organized to feed the children of the Nathupur Pahari Learning Centre.
Around 60 children from our four learning centres came together for a get together at Tagore International School, East of Kailash. They played and won a number of games and were given blankets and stationary as gifts. The children had a wonderful time the entire day.
Three Second Chance boys - Jatin Kumar , Manglu Ram and Abbas Khan have been placed in jobs at the famous French Restaurant, Chez Nini, located at Lodhi Road.
It was show time for the boys of the Second Chance School on 10th November 2012. The excited bunch of actors that included Ritinjali members and well-wishers too besides the boys took the stage after months of rehearsal to stage a musical in English called ‘A Bagful of Dreams’.
David Tirkey, who came to the Second Chance School as a 10 year old completed his class 10 and had joined the Bakery and Confectionery section as an intern at Hotel Radisson Blu in Jalandhar which is operated by the MBD Group.
