KRITI foundation has given me a platform to train students of 10th class with soft skills between Dec '20 to Apr '21. I was immensely proud to share my knowledge and experience with these children during the pandemic, and teaching them how to overcome adversities in life, and to stay positive.
It was a pleasure to be a part of Kriti's Project Disha, an online mentoring program for grade 10 students. I had the opportunity to mentor, interact and learn from a group of six students.
What began as responding to a social media call for volunteering, led me to a wonderful programme by the Kriti Trust. The entire programme that had so far been conducted in the offline mode had to move online owing to the restrictions imposed due to the pandemic.
Covid-19 has shaken the educational system and given a new path forward to learning and teaching methods. The most affected are the students of Government schools. At Kriti’s mentoring program, I got to interact with young aspiring students of various schools in Telangana.
I have been working as a volunteer in Kriti for 3 years now. The first thing that caught my mind was that they are mentoring students for their career building apart from just sponsoring their studies. It is completely vital because even those who can afford sometimes lack proper guidance.
