Mentoring and tutoring underprivileged children

Right behind an affluent neighborhood in my city is a neighborhood with struggling families. Moms are the backbones of these homes, where dads are into substance and domestic abuse. Moms work as domestic helpers and try hard to make the ends meet. The children go to their neighborhood’s public school, where the education quality is poor. Children lack the moral and learning environment at home. I spend 2 hours every day with a group of children in this community, teaching them concepts of Math and English. I also incorporate moral education, mindfulness, yoga, Brain Gym and study/memory skills in my classes. Both the children and I are thoroughly enjoying these classes and are making progress. The shine in their eyes when they get the concept being taught is priceless.
