A Perfect Saturday!!
It was a well spent Saturday with our loving Paryavaran Mitra women. Due to extreme temperatures and vacation time, Saturday Special was organized after a month. We were accompanied by a wonderful soul Hendrik. Event started with a peaceful prayer followed by lot of sharing and updates from both the stakeholders. Then, it was a turn of an exercise session planned by Hendrik, a very humble volunteer at Manav Sadhna. They really enjoyed the way he connected with them, taught them the moves with purity and humility.
Then, at night we went for rag-picking with Maheshbhai and Lalitaben along with Hendrik, Ben and Chandler. Ben and Chandler are the new volunteers from US for 6months came to serve in Paryavaran Mitra. It was really an eye-opening experience for them. They were completed moved by self- respect and determination carried by these amazing souls who work day and night not only feeding their family but also serving the city keeping it clean and green.
After 3hrs and 5kms of walk in the middle of night, we all were exhausted but it was totally worth it. Hope to have these experiences on a continuous basis.
