In the summer of 2018, a group of students including me, had volunteered to tutor 6th to 10th grade students at a near by under-privileged school. We went to tutor them every Thursday and Friday for 2 months. It was a very fulfilling experience; getting to really see what impact is left by helping them understand a concept better. Our school also had an initiative where the drivers and the staff members were taught English. With the help of the short lessons, the members became more confident while talking to the students in the school. They were able to understand the guests and parents who came to school better. At the end of the sessions, all of the helping staff members were really happy and felt proud of their ability to learn quickly. We all have the capability to learn, we just have to make the situation favourable for us. As a member of the privileged section of society, it is our duty to make the odds turn a little favourable for the underprivileged.
