A day of heartfelt felicity by Parul Goyal
By Volunteer Parul Goyal, FHI Jaipur
How NGOs work and the experience of working in one had remained a mystery for too long, for me. I had been mulling for a long time to join an NGO to help people who are not so privileged. Then I heard from a friend about FHI and I decided to be a part of this initiative.
The first activity was called ‘Decoding Detective’. Some small substitution cyphers were used to replace numbers with alphabet letters. It was fun to watch them rack their brains to decipher the puzzles given to them and see them laugh at their own silly mistakes.
It was such an ecstatic experience to see so much enthusiasm and happiness filled in the children who have not even got it all. And I really hope that we were able to able to make those children as much happy as the experience was fulfilling for myself.
