Sriya has been and still is a great asset to the SKCV orphanage community. She has Invested a lot of her time and effort in educating our orphans, who are between the 5 and age group of 12. With the money she received through fundraising in the U.S., she bought 15 iPads and installed many games in different areas, including Math, English, Science, Geography and Music, creative thinking, and entertainment.
Our kids never saw an iPad before, but Sriya brought this fascinating piece of technology into their lives for the first time. Our kids were very excited to use and play on the iPads. Sriya was very patient and diligent when teaching our kids how to operate an iPad and showing them how to play around 50 games! We could see her love and passion for teaching the kids through the hours she spent sitting and interacting with them and through the charming smile she always carried on her face.
Apart from the numerous games she gathered on the iPads, Sriya even devised a math and English curriculum for our kids, which has really helped them. We noticed significant improvements in their analytical abilities and communication skills, proving that the knowledge Sriya has imparted to our kids has been of great value and benefit.
In addition to teaching our orphans, Sriya has held drives and fundraisers at her school, neighborhood, the temple, the church, and at basketball and football games to collect shoes, clothes, and money to donate to not only our orphanage, but also to other orphanages in India, China, Mexico, Philippines, and Sudan.
Sriya has clearly understood our need and acted upon her vision to improve our situation and help our kids. Her ability to identify a problem in society, devise an approach to tackle it, and finally act upon her plan is an unique and precious quality Sriya possesses.
However, Sriya was an exception. She not only is a stellar student, but she also devotes much of her time providing the best for others, as she did for our orphans. We see a leader in her, and we are confident that she will make a positive impact wherever she is with her remarkable intrapersonal and interpersonal skills, perseverance, and generous and empathetic heart.
