Students of AGBS, Ahmedabad, visited the orphanage managed by Mother Teresa’s Nirmala Niketan on 11th May 2010.
The students were received by the Sister Superior of the orphanage and were introduced to all the resident children. There were about 13 children who were not adopted and five infants who were in the process for adoption.
Students were taken on a ‘de-tour’ through the shelter home.
it was a wonderful experience for the students and they were touched with the innocence of smiles of the children.
To quote one of the students “ I was told that innocence and beauty have no enemies, if that be so, then why are these children struggling?” Another student mentioned that I had come here with an arrogance that I am going to give them something but actually I am taking back something from here, a lesson that selflessness and living in the present can give far more happiness than any currency or achievement can!
