Always feel gratitude for everything you have,
And try to share the maximum you can to those who cannot have.
Taking cue from the motto of NSS – “ NOT ME BUT YOU “ which reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for self-less service. NSS helps the students develop an appreciation of other person’s point of view and also show consideration to other living beings.
NVM (Nirma Volunteaching Movement) is a student-led initiative taken by us, the students of Nirma University to educate the children of rural village Miroli, Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
We visit them every Saturday or Sunday, to guide them through academic subjects and also with other co-curricular activities like sports, dance, creativity. Also, a syllabus is constrained for each one of them.
We share a special bond with them, not only mentors we become their friends. They lovingly call us Didi – bhaiya.
Vision : Every child has the right to education. They should get basic education and life learning skills that help them to fly in the sky of their dreams. Make children identify their talent and motivate them to do work in that direction for their bright future.
Mission : We encourage children whom we are teaching to become a volunteacher in the future so that they can take the responsibility of the students of his/her village. Doing this we can increase numbers of volunteachers and reach more numbers of children who deserve a better education.
“We try to be a change and get them ready to be one!”
