IDF student Volunteer- Tithi Kulkarni volunteered at the Old age Home

Tithi Kulkarni, student social ambassador  of Indian Development Foundation volunteered at Assisi Bhavan Oldage Home,  Goregaon (East), Mumbai.

The class 10 student, Tithi from St. Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Perth, Australia  visited IDF office and expressed her desire to volunteer for a cause during her stay in Mumbai.
Tithi spent quality time with the elderly friends at Oldage Home in Goregaon from 11th Dec to 22nd Dec 2012. She performed many of the daily routine of the inmates and helped them in many of their work viz; playing games, reading excerpts of books and newspapers, applying lotion, filing nails and serving their morning tea. She also helped Sisters in few tasks such as typing, gardening and preparing Christmas decorations..

Tithi shared her experience and said, "The reality of life became extremely evident after listening to the residents’ stories about how and why they were at the Convent. It was disheartening to feel their loneliness but at the same time their positive attitude and support for one another was admirable and inspiring."
At the last day of  social project at the Oldage home there was a group prayer where everyone wished her best of luck for future studies and prayed for her. She appreciated their kind nature, wise words and optimism.
I express my sincere thanks to IDF for offering me a golden opportunity and selecting my social project which will be ever cherished in my life, said Tithi with a smile.

Indian Development Foundation appreciates the efforts of St. Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Perth, Australia.
