“Snehadhara has made me who I am today and I wouldn’t want to be anyone else.” says Yashaswini.

“I joined as an intern during the peak of the pandemic and nearly had my internship pushed and cancelled because of lockdown. But it worked out and after a brief time online, I moved to Bangalore in a few months. I had never lived away from home and being fresh out of college, everything was new. My beginning with Snehadhara was almost serendipitous. Coming here, we started new campus and lived with the children. It was a new journey for me and a new journey for Snehadhara too. I found a family here. I realised I can depend on the people here.”

“I’ve learnt so much being a part of Snehadhara. Everything has a purpose. And you can learn from it. I have tried my best to takeaway an understanding and learning from every situation I’ve encountered. Every single child I’ve met here has shifted my perspective. They have and will always accept me for who I am today. It motivates me to see the efforts of the work we do. The effect of all our work is like fuel. I believe there is so much work to be done in this world. We are barely making a dent. And I will keep trying to make this dent bigger with Snehadhara.”

“Being here is the rollercoaster of the best kind. The journey has been surprising and unlike anything I’d imagined. Everyone – colleagues, children, all are accepted here unconditionally and this is at the core of everything we do. It is an experience that is bigger than words for me.”
