“શિબિરમાં અમને સ્ત્રીઓ પરના અત્યાચારોના અનુભવો પૂછતા હતા...
ત્યારનું લાગણીસભર વાતાવરણ સ્પર્શી ગયું, મને અન્યાય પ્રત્યે અવાજ ઉઠાવવાની હિંમત મળી”

Crux of reflections by students:

કૅમ્પ દરમ્યાન પ્રોત્સાહન, નવા વિચારો, ધ્યેય, લક્ષ્ય અને આત્મવિશ્વાસની બાબત મળી

મને જુદી જુદી રમતોમાંથી મળતા message ખૂબ જ પ્રભાવશાળી હોય છે તે મને ગમ્યા. અને શિબિરમાં શીખવેલી ધ્યેય, આત્મવિશ્વાસ વગેરે બાબતો ઉપયોગી બની.

~ આશી નાયક

દેશમાં ખેડૂતોની પરિસ્થિતિ તથા Education વિશે ખૂબ જાણવા મળ્યું

શિબિરમાં જ્યારે અમે બધાને ઘેર ગયા તે ખૂબ ગમ્યું. એમાં અમને દેશમાં ખેડૂતોની પરિસ્થિતિ તથા Education વિશે ખૂબ જાણવા મળ્યું. આ શિબિરમાં શીખેલી ઘણી બધી બાબતો આગળ વધવા ઉપયોગી થશે.

~ કુશ દેસાઈ

શિબિરમાં સ્ત્રીઓ પર થતા અત્યાચાર વિશે અનુભવો શેર કર્યા તે બાબત સ્પર્શી ગઈ

શિબિરમાં શીખેલી બધી જ બાબતો જીવનમાં ઉપયોગી થાય એવી છે પછી તે સફળતા મેળવાની વાત હોય કે સંબંધો સાચવવાની હોય. માનવીના દૃષ્ટિકોણ વિશે પ્રથમવાર જાણ્યું. સાક્ષાત્ સ્વર્ગનો અનુભવ થાય છે.

~ પરિતા પટેલ

મને પૂર્વગ્રહો વિશે જાણવા મળ્યું, આત્મવિશ્વાસ વધ્યો, લીડરશિપનો ગુણ પણ વધ્યો.

~ ફારૂક પઠાણ

સ્ત્રીઓ પરના અત્યાચાર પર રોક મૂકવી. મારી કોઈ છોકરી થશે તો હું હંમેશાં તેને સપૉર્ટ કરીશ.

~ નેહલ પરમાર

શિબિરમાં મને તો જે રીતે ગામડાના લોકોના જીવનને જાણવા મળ્યું તે મારા હૃદયને ઘણું સ્પર્શી ગયું

હંમેશાં બીજા સાથે સારો વ્યવહાર કરવો. Self confidence અને Positive thinking વિશે ઘણું બધું જાણવા મળ્યું. જીવન કઈ રીતે જીવવું એ પણ જાણવા મળ્યું.

~ પ્રિયલ મિસ્ત્રી

સૌની સાથે હળીમળીને કાર્ય કરવાની બાબત સ્પર્શી ગઈ

આ અનુભવ ઘણો સારો રહ્યો. અમને ઘણી બધી નવી બાબતો શીખવા મળી. અમને સૌની સાથે હળીમળીને કાર્ય કરવાની બાબત સ્પર્શી ગઈ. આ બધી બાબતો અમને ઘણી રીતે ઉપયોગી થશે. જેવા કે બીજાને મદદ કરવામાં.

Crux of reflections by students of Noor Group (translated from marathi language):

We learnt so many new things, our self–confidence increased

The activities I liked the most are the ones where we wrote 10 statements for ourselves for building our self–confidence and the newspaper article in which we wrote an article about our achievements, what we have done (in future). I liked all these activities because our madam took these activities nicely and we learnt so many new things due to which our self–confidence increased.

~ Shreyas Kapse

I liked all stories. From them I learnt that even if anyone says anything to us, we should keep our self–confidence. I also liked 2 debates very much.

~ Suhas Kurne

I learnt how to create and plan your own future

In these three day camp, I learnt how to create and plan your own future. If every student keeps humanity as their mission then that will surely happen. This is what I learnt from this camp. Because of this we will all become great (Mahan).

~ Prathamesh Chaugule

It will remain in our lives forever

In these 3 days of Life camp, I liked all activities so much because Mayuri Didi taught us so well that it will remain in our lives forever. That’s why I liked all activities very much and my most favourite of all is the 5 components of success activity. Thank you Mayuri didi.

~ Shweta Manglekar

I learnt that for being successful, we need to follow some principles

In these three days camp I learnt how to introduce myself in a different way, how to write positive statements about myself and 5 components required to become successful. For being successful, we need to follow some principles and that’s why principles are very important in our lives.

~ Saurabh Khandagale

You are everyone’s favourite

Mayuri didi, your Language is very clear and beautiful. You helped us understand all stories and activities very nicely. The knowledge we got from you in this camp is very useful in our lives. You never disappointed anyone and always made us very happy. We will never forget you. I feel that there is no one so loving and nice as you in this whole world.

~ Vipul Gokhale

Crux of reflections by students of Naunihaal Group:

मुझे 5 components of success activity सब से अच्छी लगी

हमारे drama का subject hard work and dream था. इस Subject पर हमने drama कर के यह सन्देश दिया कि अपने जीवन में success पाने के लिए dream और hard work करना कितना महत्वपूर्ण है I सब से पहले dream चाहये, क्योंकि dream नहीं तो आशा नहीं, आशाये नहीं तो hard work नहीं इसलिए dream और hard work का महत्व बहुत है I

~ रमेश कुम्मरीपुरी

हर ऐक activity में हमे मजा आया और यह सब activities हमारे लिये बहुत मायने रखती है I क्योंकि इन सब activities से हमे ज्ञान मिला I और उन सब का उपयोग हम हमारे भविष्य मे करेंगे I यह activities करते समय हमे बिलकुल आलस नहि आया और सब activities हमने खुशी से की I

~ मयुर साजणे

यह Life camp मे जो activities ली है उससे मेरी आदते बदली है

मुझे आत्म- विश्वास की activity बहुत पसंद आई क्योंकि इस activity से मेरा आत्म विश्वास बढा और मै बहुत confident बन गई हूँ I Unique ID activity से मॆरी खुद की पेहचान मालुम हुई इसलिये मुझे यह activity भी बहुत पसंद आई I यह Life camp मे जो activities ली है उससे मेरी आदते बदली है I यह मेरे लिये बहुत खुशी की बात है I

~ कोमल पाटिल

मुझे Life is beautiful activity बहु पसंद आई I क्योंकि इस activity कि वजह से मुझे खूबियां पता चली I मेरे अंदर क्या गुण है वो मुझे पता चला I

~ अनिकेत सोनपलॆ

हर पल ख़ुशी देती है जिंदगी, हर पल नया सदमा देती है जिंदगी I

पर हम जिंदगी से शिकायत भी कैसे करे I

क्योंकि आप के जैसे फरिश्ते देती है जिंदगी I

~ वॆभव साऴोखे

हीरल दीदी, जबसे आपने हमें बताया है कि हमें किसी भी कारण के लिए हमारा आत्मविश्वास नहीं खोना चाहिए तबसे मेरे दिल में आशा की एक नई किरण जाग ऊठी है I

~ अंजली जादव

“Unconditional love and innocence filled my heart with joy
and eyes with tears”

Reflection by one of the Life Camp facilitators:

Facilitator Mayuri Gohil with the kids

I am absolutely speechless. The kids of Samarth Vidya Mandir are outstanding. Love just pours out of their hearts! They are so warm and welcoming and eager to learn new things in life. I had one of the best times of my life there. Kids come from different social backgrounds, some are physically challenged but

they all gel together so well that you also become part of them. I have learnt so many things from them. The care for each other, unconditional love and innocence filled my heart with joy and eyes with tears. This was truly a memorable experience. Truly Inspiring!

~ Mayuri Gohil
