A poem from an Our Sansar volunteer

Posted on Updated on

We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and your New Years is just as great! One of our volunteers, Belinda, has been creatively inspired by the work she and other volunteers in Nepal are doing in Nepal. We wanted to show you the poem as we really believe it represents Our Sansar’s values and gives you an insight into what volunteering in an Our Sansar home actually entails:

Our Sansar
a home for you and me
Sarita’s in the kitchen
making sweet chai tea
A game of inside outside
keeps us entertained
noise and personality
not contained
Strength and bravery
a regular sight
There’s plenty of rice
no need to fight
Today we dig the veg patch
expecting greens to hatch
Paint the walls with words
And make origami birds
Children will come and go
as the staff retain their flow
Emotions run high
when it’s time to say goodbye
Connections with each other
Powerful to one another
Our Sansar
expect no less
The idea is
that each child will progress
They will go to school
and know that school is cool
They will be with their families wherever possible
From adult to child
there is a lot to learn
From child to adult
in return
Forgive and forget
don’t regret
Think big, aim high
and don’t be shy.

We all love Belinda’s poem and believe it really embodies the hope we have for all the children within the home.
