The Award in Action- Bronze Award Participant, Vidhi Agarwal from Vidya Devi Jindal School, Hisar

I am Vidhi Agarwal, a Bronze Award Participant from Vidya Devi Jindal School, Hisar and I visited the Town Park, Hisar for the Voluntary Service section of The Award Programme.

I participated in different activities and did social service by indulging with unprivileged children. I helped them to learn crafting of origami butterflies, prepared cards of different shapes and also highlighted how lack of hygiene could unleash various diseases and how those could be prevented via proper and effective measures. We also did many physical enrichment activities!

These activities helped the children to acquire new skills for life. I also distributed goodies which made the tiny tots cheerful. It is actually very true that "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
I developed a sense of empathy and understanding that will make this world a better place to be!
