A Day to Remember for Aperian Global’s India Office
The Aperian Global team in India recently visited the Jyothi Seva Home for Blind Children, home to 92 boys and girls. Our plan was simple: to get to know the children and make a small difference in their lives by engaging them in fun and educational activities.
We devised a quiz with audiobooks as prizes. The quiz topics ranged from Bollywood to country capitals to the types of bones in the human body. The children answered with great zeal and those who won promised to share their books with the group.
The qualities the children displayed were extraordinary: their honesty, sincerity, enthusiasm, and generosity were evident in every interaction and exchange that took place. The children’s zest for life, despite what we consider severe obstacles, was humbling and inspiring. Our simple plan for the day turned out to be an experience that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. It seemed only fitting that such a wonderful day ended with the children singing Heal the World, testament to the power of the human spirit:
There’s a place in your heart
And I know that it is love
And this place could be much
Brighter than tomorrow
And if you really try
You’ll find there’s no need to cry
In this place, you’ll feel
There’s no hurt or sorrow
