“I want to be a constant in Snehadhara, just as Snehadhara is a constant in my life.” says Priya.

“My association with SF is almost a decade long. I met Dr Gitanjali when she was working with another organisation. Volunteers were called up to buddy children for a program and I signed up, not really knowing anything about it. The whole experience was overwhelming, exciting and fun. It was a career changing decision then. After SF started, I signed up for another volunteer program. I was so happy in the space so I thought I should get into this. The day I was preparing to call, I got a call from them and it was like destiny.”

“I am so happy to have taken this decision, to be a part of this. SF has become a part of my identity. I have learnt something from every facilitator, every child. There is no one right way of doing things, everyone has their own way. I’ve learnt patience and so much more. I have grown as a person in thinking, my outlook towards various things, be it inclusion, it has all changed for the better. Everything started with observation and learning to now, being able to do on my own. It helped me build confidence in doing things. I am quite happy about my journey. Sky is the limit for SF. Everywhere there is a scope for inclusion, there is opportunity to grow. I’m sure SF will head that way. SF is a safe space with no judgement or hierarchy – I try to bring that learning into other spaces in my life. And every day is a new learning.”
