I am a freelance trainer. I conduct lots of sessions for children on various topics. But the experience with SHARP is totally different. These children are really in need of good education. They are slow in learning that does not means they are not useful. We take efforts for them then they can also come in mainstream. SHARP is taking the efforts on these children and I am very much thankful to Asha Foundation that they give me opportunity to help these children. Last year, Asha Foundation's INDEEA awarded me by "Samaj Shikshak Sanman" for my involvement in social activities. I am doing anchoring in many programs of Asha Foundation and also gave lecture in ‘Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan's program through Asha Foundation in last year

Since last year I am connected with SHARP project. SHARP helps me to find out ‘teacher' in me. I love this job and I feel proud that I am part of SHARP. In these two years, I got lots of experience of education system and children. Asha Foundation organizes different types of training sessions for SHARP teachers. These sessions are very helpful for me in the field work. We all watched the movie "Taare Zameen Par". The character of Ishan Awasthi in that film is quite similar with the children who are taking education in SHARP project.

I like Teaching. From last year I am part of SHARP project. In these two years I got lot of experiences. SHARP is a project by which we find out children who are slow learners from different schools. Every child is special and has right to education. By working in this project, I am sure that I protect this right of children. I always try to give my best when I teach these children with disabilities. This is all possible because Asha foundation trust on me n give me chance to teach these children.

"SHARP"is a platform for children to develop themselves and compete with mainstream education. Today's education system gives chance to every child to learn at least till 8th standard without failing in years. But lots of children across India not get chance to take education from schools. Asha Foundation's INDEEA give basic education to children, who are slow learners and who have problems with learning through SHARP project. I get chance to help these children because of SHARP. SHARP also gives me confidence about working and earning money for my family.

I am very thankful to Asha Foundation. They give me chance to work on SHARP project. This is my first teaching experience. Today, in every field there is lot of competition. Every parent wants their children should be topper in everything. But every child is different, his capacities are different. I think, this project is working on to bridge the gap between Children and Education. I joined SHARP this year and I am very happy. I enhanced my capacities. My confidence increased in public speaking.
