“In learning you will teach and in teaching you will learn” This is the beauty of volunteering which is visible at ROPIO, a completely volunteer driven organization. Volunteering not only gives you a chance to do your bit for society but also helps you discover something new and different about yourself. The volunteers are the backbone of ROPIO, always there to teach, guide and nurture the kids, looking after their educational and individual needs.
Devanshi Dabriwal is a 21 year old enthusiastic and dedicated volunteer who has been working at ROPIO for the past one year. A Fashion and Lifestyle Business Management student at Pearl Academy, she has been working relentlessly for a year now, teaching Mathematics and Science to students of grade 7 . She came to know of ROPIO from her college and is extremely grateful for having received this opportunity. “ My experience at ROPIO has been tremendous so far. It’s incredible to teach such a talented bunch of children. Their take on academics is invigorating and refreshing.”
Initiative and volunteerism is a huge part of the work that ROPIO does . ROPIO has volunteers from around the city and neighbouring areas who come here to impart their knowledge and time to children. Volunteers belong to all age groups and put up from various backgrounds and come together for a common cause. They work relentlessly and to the best of their efforts to ensure proper academic and individual development of the kids. It is the joy of giving your bit by taking initiative that counts and helps ROPIO to build an atmosphere for the holistic development of kids.
It is both sides of the party which is benefitted by the act of active volunteering. It is a value addition exchange for both the volunteers and ROPIO. The volunteers put in their time, efforts and experience in imparting knowledge to the kids and in return they get to learn about a host of things by working with their collegues at ROPIO. In a nutshell, ROPIO is another family away from their own, for the volunteers.
