Two members of the Sparkle Dental Boutique, Ealing, Sunita Verma, Principal and Kavita Verma, Boutique Manager, both recently started voluntary work for Volunteer Reading Help, a nationally recognised charity at their local school. This involves reading with three children twice a week, to help improve reading skills, build confidence and self esteem.
As a part of Sparkle’s goals to give back to the community, this builds on the voluntary work that they started earlier this year in Jaipur, India. Working with disadvantaged children in a remote village in India to teach English and to paint classrooms was an alternative Christmas well spent. Sunita says `Our accommodation was a hut made from cow dung and we had a few unexpected guests including bats, rats, mosquitos and field mice! Freezing temperatures, intermittent electricity and cold bucket baths meant that we certainly missed our home comforts….but the children were amazing! Their boundless enthusiasm and eagerness to learn was touching and their smiles warmed our hearts. The voluntary work was great and certainly brings you back down to reality! I can’t wait for my next trip’.
