I had a good experience volunteering with Sahaara and I did something like this for the first time. I was excited about teaching the basics to the children at Sahaara’s Education Centres in Turbhe and Ghatkopar. The children were so fun loving and intelligent. They were eager to know more about the world outside.

It was agreat experience sharing my knowledge and skills to those highly-talented and eager-to-learn children. They were all so cooperative and I hope they will use the knowledge we shared with them in the future.
