Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust
Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust, is a registered charity that was established over 25 years ago by Mr Mahendra Mehta. It was set up in order to tackle the problems of poverty in Mumbai, especially amongst young children. From its humble origins as a family institution it has grown rapidly, and now its projects cover a wide range of activities located in both India and other developing countries, including Afghanistan, Sudan, Kenya and Burundi.
Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust is committed to the welfare of people from the most underprivileged strata of society without distinction of caste, creed or color. Its emphasis is on assisting the children and youth who are the citizens of tomorrow and the disabled who need a support to help them join mainstream society.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH RNCT
I volunteered with RNCT as a Computer teacher. The 3 months which I spent with RNCT can be described as the lasting experience that I managed to collect. I can happily say those few months were well spent and the teachers were very friendly and helpful.
The first two months I taught the school children basic computers like Word, Excel, Paint etc. They were very attentive and was quite easy task to teach them with the help of the RNCT teachers. We tried to make the computer class quite fascinating for the children. We played simple games like choose a chit from a bowl, blackboard games to make the computer lessons interesting and fun. At the end of the class, we used to give chocolates to whoever performed well. Children were very smart and keen to learn despite that they were economicallydisadvantaged. I loved interacting with them. The best part about the whole experience was the love and respect that they would express. They would always be so excited to see me coming.
Last one month I spent teaching teenaged girls and boys who wanted to learn computers. They came from faraway places as they could not afford expensive computer classes in their locality. One girl named Meenakshi she used to travel from Chinchpokoli every day in her free time to get her basics right. She got immense help from Kanchan (teacher) and me. I learned that some girls who did the computer course from RNCT even got jobs. They shared healthy relationship with the teachers even after completion of the course.
The best thing about RNCT is that they are offering computer classes free of cost which is so important in to our daily life.The teachers gave special attention to each and every child in the class and process of teaching was slow so the children could get their concepts right.
The class can be made more engaging through story/picture books related to computers, 10 minutes game break (which we did when I was teaching), or maybe poetry recitals. It would refreshed the children after a long tired day.
I learned that volunteering is a two-way street. You will be surprised by how much you will get back- whether it’s a new outlook or a warm smile – when you give your time to each other. So volunteer. It is truly a beauty.
