16th – 21st Feb, 2023
The Departments of Psychology and Sociology of Khalsa College for Women, Civil Lines, Ludhiana collaborated with NGO Ashirwad to organize an Experiential Learning Activity from 16th February, 2023 to 21st February, 2023.
Ten volunteer students were involved in the preparation, organization and management of the Inauguration of Skill Training Unit – an event for the NGO – Ashirwad NICPA.
The volunteers took an active part in interacting with the specially-abled children and young adults, from teaching them the basic alphabets, hand painting and cooking to the workings of a computer. They mediated the sensory-motor learning activities and games to help the children improve their own functioning as individuals.
The students also helped in the preparation tasks and organization of the Inauguration event. They learned about the lifestyle of the specially-abled children and inside workings of an NGO. Their psychology oriented inputs in interactions with the children were acknowledged and appreciated by the chief-guest.
These volunteers came back and discussed their experiences with their peers. The Volunteers felt motivated to further participate in such activities of social-work oriented organizations and contribute positively to the Society.
