From consumption to contribution!

December 18th, 2011 | No Comments

It was Khushmita’s birthday on 11.12.11. Inspired by a few of our friends Preet, Vinit and Sonal, we decided to skip the self serving consumption parties of expensive gifts, fancy food, wasteful decorations and take our celebration over to a nearby orphanage called Hope House. This orphanage takes care of 45 boys aged 5 to […]

As I entered the Smile Store today, I found two youngest volunteers, Asha (6yrs) and Shilpa (3yrs) helping clean the place.  Entire day these children had spent rag-picking and were clearly little afraid  but our other volunteers Siddhi and Dhara were talking to them and making them feel at home. They washed their hands, combed […]

Supply Chain of Service

December 12th, 2011 | No Comments

I randomly wandered intoManav Sadhna the other day and was treated to a remarkable story from Virenbhai. It had to do with the large number of boxes neatly stacked up next to where we sat, in a corner of the main MS hall. Inside the boxes was over a ton (3,200 lbs. to be exact) […]
