Volunteer - University of Bologria - Italy

Amelia Onofri, a student of University of Bologria - Italy completed her internship with Trishul (NGO) working as a volunteer. Amelia was highly enthusiastic and showed keen interest in working with children and women. She was quick to overcome the language and cultural barrier, and could very easily communicate with children and women alike with her mix language of broken Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati and English. She helped children of trishul in their studies as well as the ladies in making different kind of handicraft and also learn't few tricks of the trade from Women Empowerment Team of Trishul NGO (TWEP). She also took the initiative to online promote the products made by  TWEP with her friends from Italy and purchased a sizable stock on behalf of her friends from Italy.

We had a small send-off party both at Women Empowerment centre and at children's center. She gave a small snack party treat of handmade panipuri to children and mini-meal treat at Women's centre. Trishul team gave her a small token gift and certificate as a token of appreciation.
