This is our Leo Club's second visit to the children home. The last time we visited here, we played games with the orphans, however, this time we decided to help to clean up the kindergarten classrooms. Since it was the March holidays, the children wasn't studying, so it was much easier for us to clean up the rooms. There were 4 classrooms, we divided the 20 of us into 4 small groups and cleaned up the respective classrooms.
The organization secretary, Mr. Visha giving our members a short briefing about Ramakrishna Ashrama.
Boys and girls from the Ashrama itself also helped us in cleaning the classrooms. The boys cleaned the fans and cleared the dusts near the ceiling while the girls swept the floor, cleaned the curtains, windows, tables and chairs as well as the toys and mopped the floor. Here's some photos,
After cleaning up, there was some time left, so we all gathered together and have some quality time with the orphans, some of our members even gave the orphans badges. The orphans were very grateful to get some souvenirs from us, so we're of course happy too when we see them happy. Sometimes, the little things in life may not look important to us, but it does make a difference to some other people, so be thankful for what we have. :)
Here's some of the group photos :

Orphans with their badges, yayy! :D
After all, it was a different experience to visit an orphanage and help by contributing some energy to clean up the place. We hope to visit there another time to serve more, ROAR!
