People About Us
Qatar Airways has been associating with SARSAS for the past 3 years in sponsoring their annual marathon event called Trivandrun which garners financial help for the underprivileged. The enthusiasm, spirit and the humane thinking of the group which runs this NGO is very infectious and have seen tremendous effort being put in by them over the years to make this event a huge success..Another thing I have noticed is the major difference in the way things are handled with more maturity and planning and focus with each passing year in organising this event.I wish there were more and more youngsters with this kind of mindset which instills hope in our minds and joy in our hearts.
Hats off to the master who told experience is the best teacher. As a youngster, stepping out of my teens, I was in dire need of some experiential learning to infuse the right perspective in life. SARSAS happened at that time, exposing me to people of different strata and lives and giving me the learning of a lifetime. I became emotionally attached to the work, witnessing the real challenges in the society and contributing my one cent. I feel every youngster should go through such an experience. It is education for life
My experience in the social strata largely revolves around SARSAS, which was the stepping stone for my entry into the Teach for India fellowship. So for those who want to join SARSAS and if you are willing to give 100% to it, i assure it certainly can give you worth a lifetime.
All those moments; when the students in NISH thanked me for teaching them, when an old man held my hand for donating blood to his little angel, when the inhibited giggles of kottor girls surrounded me and many such small happiness that touched my heart beyond anything I'd ever felt, has made me passionate towards what I was doing and taught me to see life in a different perspective. Thanks to SARSAS.
