Volunteer-Institute D'Etudes Politiques Aix-en-Provence - France

Students of Institute D'Etudes Politiques Aix-en-Provence - France, Guillout Zoe volunteered with Trishul 

Guillout Zoe, the French girl with a sunshine smile charmed the children and women of Trishul NGO from day one. Just like music has no language, with her "happy to help expressions" and "Will", she easily found way to help small children with academics; activities and helping women empowerment team coordinator with some back office work. She actively participated in Women's Yoga Sessions and Women Day's celebration at NGO.  Her active volunteering was cut short due to lock down announced in Mumbai due to Global crises of Pandemic. She had to cut short her volunteering and had to fly back to her home town in France as the lock down kept extending. Children and team Trishul NGO are hoping that we meet Zoe, the volunteer with a sunshine smile after the Pandemic crises are settled if she happens to be in India.

Volunteer - Madras Christian College

Students of Madras Christian CollegeKodhai Ramalingam, K. Keerthana successfully completely their internship with Trishul.

When I met these two Tamil girls from Chennai on the day one of routine Introduction and Induction session; I though these English speaking girls would face serious language barrier if they were to teach children from Marathi Medium school and work with women from TWEP team, as they did not know even a word of Hindi and Marathi language. But Kodhai and Keerthana proved me wrong from day one as their smiles; happy body language and positive attitude helped them jell very well with both children and women. Over the period girls picked up few Marathi and Hindi vocabulary from children  and Women; Marathi medium children too started conversing with them in English which helped them improve their communication skills in that language.

Kodhai and Keerthana helped smaller children  with their academics and art craft; played games; danced with them; the children had loads of fun. These girls always took initiative and never said no to any request for any volunteering opportunity. They also helped in back office work at TWEP; volunteered for manning Exhibition Stalls for Women Empowerment Product Sales at Corporate NGO Mela.

Volunteer - Usha Pravin Gandhi College

Student of Usha Pravin Gandhi CollegeAayushi Zaveri volunteered with Trishul NGO (Trishul Learning Centre - TLC).

Aayushi volunteered to help children at Trishul NGO with their academics; children were very comfortable with her and took to her more as Didi than as a tutor. Aayushi handled her responsibilities with great maturity and left a good impression on children and team members of Trishul Learning Centre.

Hitarthi Kothari, Dhruti Patel, Shikhar Agarwal were great help as they downloaded video for the students of all the class to make studies interesting and fun.

Volunteer - Indian Institute of Crafts and Design

Students of Indian Institute of Crafts and Design (IICD), Jaipur "Asmita Das, Shrinkhla Srivastava, Anshika Jain, and Lamha Dhingra" successfully completed their internship with Trishul NGO. They worked with the Women from Trishul NGO and also helped children in their studies and activities.

It was a unique blend of Experienced Artisans from Trishul Women Empowerment Program (TWEP) and Professionally trained creativity of Girls from IICD.  Girls from IICD helped TWEP team create few new products and learn some new tricks in the trade. TWEP team benefited a lot from ideas shared by IICD Girls.

IICD Girls too lots of initiative in helping children at Trishul Learning Centre (TLC) with their studies; mentoring them; solving their day-to-day problems in lesson and also playing games and activities with them. They event helped one of the students who was appearing for SSC with English, Math and Science subjects. Children and Women of Trishul NGO will miss interns from IICD a lot. Looking forwards to see third batch of Interns from IICD.

See you again soon...
