Visit to an NGO

Meeting the he and she who are and are not like you and me.

Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) have always been viewed as moral and supportive institutions for those who’ve needed help in any form. On November 19, 2015, 38 students, of class XI, from the Psychology and Sociology department paid a visit to a BOSCO Refugee NGO Centre in Vikaspuri, Delhi.

Bosco Delhi, in partnership with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), is providing comprehensive support in education and skill training programmes, language and vocational training, health services and psychosocial support to refugees from Afghanistan, Myanmar and African countries.Bosco helps the refugees in upgrading their skills by providing various training programmes to get suitable job in the market.

The students learnt about the working system of the NGO Centre, and also got the opportunity to interact with the refugees. Besides providing education and health facilities to the refugees, the NGO creates small scale business opportunities for them in support of UNHCR. During the interaction with about 15-20 refugees (majorly from Myanmar and Afghanistan), the students talked about their favourite subjects, sports, movies, etc. The refugee students also shared their experiences of living in Delhi, the similarities and differences they observed in the cultures, and their everyday routine. The students were also made to visit the various departments in the centre, like the Socio-psychological department, crèche, etc.

The students had a great experience meeting people whom they thought would be so different, but were in a way same. It was a golden experience for the students to meet people of their age who have been tagged so differently, and blend in with each other so well.

“There's always a good lesson in meeting new people, its enlarging your circle of friends.”
