I joined FHI in the month of August, 2018 and it was the first time I had ever worked with an NGO. I must say that it was a very enriching experience. I like the entire idea of FHI targeting youngsters and trying to involve them to interact with underprivileged children. The activities that are organised aim at interaction and skill development for the underprivileged children. The few events that I have attended, it was an experience of a lifetime. The volunteers are very enthusiastic and take immense interest in making sure that everything is well planned and in fact, beneficial for the children. Moreover, our city coordinators and other heads are themselves very approachable and invite every new idea and contribution. I believe that FHI is one such organisation that not only helps you in doing something for the underprivileged children but it also enriches you as a person while enabling you to learn about the broader realities of life and making your minor yet, immense contribution to the society.
