General Secretary, Srotoshwini Trust
I wish the concept of Pathshala & Pathbhavan spreads all around and many more organizations come forward to make Baroda free from beggars and child labours. Hope our beloved city sets example in front of India in due course of time.
Joint General Secretary, Srotoshwini Trust
I feel great to be part of Srotoshwini Trust. I am actively involved with Churni Collections where a few underprivileged ladies are involved. Our aim is to make them self reliant through Churni.
At times I feel so contented, when I see smile on the face of these innocent students.., their joy for getting education and their desire to learn more makes me happy.
Volunteer, Churni Collection
A volunteer of Churni Collection, working with the women of underprivileged section. The women who are not financially protected. I aim to make these women financially independent and aim to bring back their self esteem. Some day they must be valued by their family members and so by their neighbours and thus by the society.
I got a new life here. I want to dedicate the rest of my life to 'pathshala'.
I want to live 100 years or more...because as long as i live, i will be able to devote myself for pathshala. I have a dream- when they will all read, write , sing, dance, and will live a life with respect and dignity! I will go miles for them before i sleep ! Good luck to all my twinkling stars....keep shining.
Jab meri umar ho jayegi, apne bachche bare ho jayenge. Sab apne payer pe khare ho jayenge. Main murke dekhungi un sabko! Isse bada sukh aur kya ho sakti hai!

जगह ऐसी जो फूटपाट से पाठशाला तक लाया । ऊॅच नीचे की भेद बिना सबको एकजूट किया । यही है फूटपाट- पाठशाला- पाठ भवन जिसका छोटा सा हिस्सा हम है ।
At Pathshala, learning is two way process. Volunteers at Pathshala imparts education to children and children teaches us how to look at life positively in every situation and face each day with a smile. Children's thirst for knowledge has never deterred even though there are no concrete classrooms and only limited facilities are available . I feel elated and happy to work with them and hope to continue doing this.

Volunteer, Trustee, Pathshala
I believe, these children will be prepared to face the world with more confidence. I am very proud to be a part of these efforts. God bless the children.
My dream was to become a teacher. Everyday is a challenge and rejuvinating at the same time. I feel relaxed. I always pray to god that i teach them as long as they need it.
Since many years, I desired to serve the weaker part of our society & Pathshala has given me the opportunity. Feeling great to be a part of Pathshala & contributing my time and knowledge to create positive changes in our society. Spending time with Pathshala gives me mental satisfaction and happiness.
My day is incomplete without our children. God bless them
I am associated with Pathshala since July 2017. I teach Hindi to 4th and 5th standard students. As of now I teach on 2 days each week. I am enjoying my time with the students and teachers of Pathshala. In these few months, apart from regular classes at the school, I was able to participate in other events like the Groundbreaking ceremony for Pathbhavan hostel, Wall painting by kids on Children’s Day and the Annual sports event. Over all, the association with Pathshala is both fulfilling and enriching.
I Namrata Kale am very proud and obliged to be the part of srotoshwini trust. I am very much lucky to contribute my work in such a great social service.
P- Power A-Attitude T-Thinking H- Habit S- Sincerity H- Honesty A- Action L- Learning A- Advantage Believe me, it’s a great experience, to teach children staying on foot path & in slums . You really know the meaning of “Life” & “Comfort”, when you see these people, staying on foot path & in slums, with no modern facility, and still they are happy & smiling. I love inter-acting with these kids, since they teach me the meaning of Life.
I am immensely happy to be in the family of Pathshala-Pathbhavan, Srotoshwini group.Pathshala is a place where besides academics children are taught art,craft,music,cleanliness,hygiene,discipline and all the team of dedicated teachers aim at overall development of the children. I hope & wish my association with Pathshala continues for years to come.
Each and every child deserves a childhood. Pathshala is that space where i see that childhood shaping children into the better versions of who they can be. Also it makes me believe that this is truly the spirit of democratic education trying to reach margins. I love to play my part here!
It has been my lifelong ambition to contribute meaningfully to the society beyond the confines of my home and family.
Having built a successful and a stable family, I could finally afford time in pursuit of more lofty goals.
I have always believed that education is the best, and perhaps the only sustainable way out of poverty and helplessness. Pathshaala rightly recognizes this, and helps educate the children who otherwise are doomed to a life of perpetual poverty and misery. Foremost, being a mother,
I have experience of teaching life-lessons as well as academic lessons to young restless minds, which hold me in good stead while working with PathShaala students. One needs love, empathy and dedication to motivate and inspire kids to learn, one step at a time;
qualities that any mother has in good measure. The joy with which the students at Pathshaala learn and develop is extremely fulfilling, and infuses me with great pride and enthusiasm to continue in similar vein.
