Volunteer of the Month - June


The Volunteer of the month for June goes to Elsa Verghese!!!

Elsa started her journey with Toybank in May, and in a short span she has attended most of the events at Toybank, from distribution, to follow-up sessions to setting up Toy Libraries. She has been there for Toybank always. :)

Toybank truly appreciates the work Elsa is doing for us!

Thank You Elsa, and hope to have you as a volunteer in future as well.
Elsa at work!
We had a small chat with Elsa, here's our dialogue:

Toybank: What brought you to volunteer with us?
Elsa: I love being with children, and I wanted to work with a NGO that helps me to be with them and do some good work for them, and Toybank gave me such an opportunity.


Toybank: Please tell us about your most memorable experience with Toybank?
Elsa: The event I particularly remember is the whole day event with Deloitte, I enjoyed being with them and the whole session at Ashadeep Association, Chakala. The session of card making etc helped the children to showcase their creativity, and I enjoyed learning so many things from them.

Toybank: What do you think about volunteering in general?
Elsa: Volunteering is giving back to the society what you owe to it. I want to pursue my career as a social worker too.

Toybank: What keeps you motivated to volunteer?
Elsa: The smile that we bring to the people in need, the happiness that they get, the change that we can see keeps me going, because this drop by drop change will surely make an ocean of change one day! I would like to thank Toybank for helping me to be an instrument in this process of change.

Thank You Elsa :-)

Keep Toybanking!
