Supporting Orphans And Nurturing Their Talents

Posted September 1, 2019 from India

"Just wondering how you can change so many lives just by doing small things. Wanna know how? There are so many orphanages or underdeveloped schools where students don't get books to study. Just imagine if you donate your old books to only one child and help him/her with the studies, then s/he may become something someday. At least s/he may reach a position where s/he can help other children in the orphanage so that they won't face problem in studying. S/he can improve the condition of the place. At least can convert the place into a proper place to live. S/he can make her future generations brighter and can improve others future too. Further the chain will continue until everyone becomes educated or self sufficient. What did you do? Just DONATED your old books to just one person and there you help in creating a better civilisation.

Do give it a thought."-Trideep Barik.

Every person is bestowed with a talent, no matter where s/he come from how much resources s/he have, there is at least one skill that s/he can be good at. These  talents are most likely to go waste if they don't get a platform.

Not many people get opportunities to display their talents. Orphans are one of them.

Recently, two of my friends celebrated their birthday in an orphanage named Asha Kiran Orphanage. What could be better than spending time with the kids in orphanage? They organised a one-time special meal and brought some gifts and necessities .

I bet you have never seen such smiles in their faces when they see a visitor. Something that touched their heart is their behaviour towards a visitor. Curious about contemporary world ,they question so many things. They play, they chat, they love to take selfies and show their talents to you.

When my friends interacted with the kids they were astonished to know about their zeal for painting. Some were even really good at it.  But the stage for their talent was just limited to the walls of the orphanage only. They need an opportunity to show or develop their gifted skills. Just by some little efforts ,help of donation ,things can change.

Hope one day they could get what they actually deserve.

Splendid dear, it's a great initiatives. And I like when you said the book does not have to be new. Our old unused books can be donated. God bless you and have a great weekend.

Yes they are.

Hello, Anisha,

I love it when people decide to celebrate their birthdays by visiting an orphanage or by giving to those in need. This is love.

Dear Anisha,
Thank you for this beautiful story. Thank you too for calling on us all to "Give it a thought". There is much we can do to support others, and as you show here, even one day, or sharing some resources can make a difference. What a great photo, so much love and happiness. I too hope "one day they could get what they actually deserve".
