Its Valentines Day.Show Love!

It’s Valentines Day!

A day dedicated to what we believe is the strongest emotion in the world and makes it go round.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrong things. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. - Corinthians 13:4- 8a

These lines if read through carefully have depth and meaning that can be an answer to most problems in life. At Protsahan, we see love and encouragement changing our little kids ‘everyday’. We document the power of faith injecting life into children who have suffered and lived in pain.

Suraj: The first day we saw him, he was highly drugged and created a ruckus at the school. We took his hand and made him realize that he’s not alone. If he turned up drugged and drunk even after promising to quit, we forgave him and our volunteers affectionately encouraged him to get over his habit. Today, he’s excited about life and we can see the metamorphosis clearly. All the street dogs are his best buddies. For unlike humans, animals ask no questions, pass no judgments. They just love.Suraj loves Radhi. Thats what he calls her :)

Julie, when we met her was a rebellious child who was often left teary eyed at the thought of her mother not wanting her. When the team held her hand, hugged her and gave her all the warmth they had to offer, the sense of belongingness sparked a brand new side of her. She now has a bunch of friends to share with and care for. Julie is a new warm little girl who has friends; she loves colors, she loves to paint and she loves painting with people. She has knowingly/unknowingly understood the importance of not keeping a record of wrong things and letting go of past sorrows for new beginnings.

We see children evolving at Protsahan everyday reinforcing our faith in the magic of unadulterated love. Love, that puts together virtues of patience, kindness, humility and trust.

That one day when a protective child ran and stood up to protect a volunteer, “Meri Didi hai yeh”. We knew, love protects and perseveres.

Here’s a day dedicated to this one emotion that connects the world!

Join us in celebrating Valentines day at PVR VIKASPURI school followed by cake cutting, yummy chocolates and sharing red balloons as a symbol of love.

Happy Valentines Day! Show Love .Say Aye!
